NISAR aka 'NASA-ISRO Synthetic Aperture Radar' is the latest mission that should excite the space enthusiasts. The mission is a result of collaboration between two leading space agencies NASA and ISRO and it will aim at building an advanced dual frequency SAR satellite to allow scientists to...
The various characteristics of life along with the crucial deciding factor, reproduction has now started to sublimate as the never ending progress of technology is keen to impart life into the next generation robots. A team of engineering researchers at the University of Minnesota has come up...
Scientists are totally clueless and have admitted that they are nowhere close to figuring out what the newly discovered cosmic radios are and where are they coming from. There are about 22 signals are fast and brilliant energy bursts that only last for a few milliseconds. Scientists say that...
The need for faster and efficient electronics is ever growing. Engineers have already began working on developing transparent electronics which could led to a number of interesting applications. A big step in this direction comes from University of Minnesota where the engineers of Indian origin...
Colonizing distant planets is going to be the next big mission for humans. NASA is gearing up to send humans to the red planet by end of the next decade and entrepreneur Elon Musk believes that his company 'SpaceX' can do it in the next eight to ten years. It's clear that humans will conquer...
A new but highly blooming field of green energy is harnessed by extracting biofuels from microalgae. Being an alternative to the liquid fossil fuels, this is making its own share of support as it has quite a few advantages over conventional fossil fuels. A research in Kumamoto university further...
Engineers at IIT-Roorkee (IITR) are working on developing low-cost solar cells using solar cells. The pigment that naturally occurs in Jamun can be used as a cheaper photosensitizer for 'Dye Sensitised Solar Cells' aka DSSCs or Gratzel cells. These cells form a layer of porous titanium dioxide...
The molecule conceiving the power to save one's life is now been considered having a potential use in storing energy. We are talking about water. A research team from the North Carolina State University has recently discovered a material that possesses atomatically thin layers of water that...
Our quest for life and exploration on planets other than Earth starts from Mars and practically ends there as well. We might have digital data, supporting life, coming from different galaxies light years away from us, but we don’t have something like Mars-rover there to validate that. So,...
Imagine a society where entire houses have rooftops made of a material that keeps the air clean and powers the homes. In short, a smarter, greener, cleaner world. It doesn't feel like such a distant dream now, thanks to breakthrough research work done by Chemistry Prof. Fernando Uribe-Romo and...
