Elon Musk's Name Appears in 69-Year-Old Book About Colonizing Mars
The Mars Project Let's be honest: Elon Musk doesn't need his ego boosted any more than it currently is. But that didn't stop Twitter users from resurfacing this curious piece of trivia about the Technoking of Tesla this week: He shares the same first name as a character in a 69-year-old (nice) book about colonizing Mars. It began back in December 2020, when Twitter user Toby Li responded to a twe
This Week's Awesome Tech Stories From Around the Web (Through May 8)
SPACE Elon Musk Is Maybe, Actually, Strangely, Going To Do This Mars Thing Marina Koren | The Atlantic "Take this path all the way to Boca Chica, past the solar-panel farms and storage sheds, past the little street that used to be called Joanna Street until Musk renamed it Rocket Road, and you end up on the beach, with sky and sea stretching out before you. It's a beautiful view on any day, and m
Why do some neurons degenerate and die in Alzheimer's disease, but not others?
Researchers have uncovered molecular clues that help explain what makes some neurons more susceptible than others in Alzheimer's disease. The scientists present evidence that neurons with high levels of the protein apolipoprotein E (apoE) are more sensitive to degeneration, and that this susceptibility is linked to apoE's regulation of immune-response molecules within neurons.
Feeling younger buffers older adults from stress, protects against health decline
People who feel younger have a greater sense of well-being, better cognitive functioning, less inflammation, lower risk of hospitalization and even live longer than their older-feeling peers. A study suggests one potential reason for the link between subjective age and health: Feeling younger could help buffer middle-aged and older adults against the damaging effects of stress.
Transforming atmospheric carbon into industrially useful materials
Plants are unparalleled in their ability to capture carbon from the air, but this benefit is temporary. Researchers have proposed a more permanent, and even useful, fate for this captured carbon by turning plants into a valuable industrial material called silicon carbide (SiC). A new study from scientists quantifies this process with more detail than ever before.
Scientists launch search for genetic test to spot killer prostate cancer
Gene-screening, as is used to detect some breast cancer risks, could save thousands of lives Scientists have begun work to create a prostate cancer screening service for the UK. In a few years, middle-aged men could be tested to reveal their genetic susceptibility to the condition, with those deemed to be under significant threat of developing it being offered treatment or surgery. The service wo
Surprising sand fly find yields new species of bacteria
Researchers made a surprising finding while examining areas where sand flies rear their young: a new species of bacteria that is highly attractive to pregnant sand flies. The findings could advance the production of ecologically safe baits or traps to reduce sand fly populations.
Researchers develop new metal-free, recyclable polypeptide battery that degrades on demand
The introduction of lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries has revolutionized technology as a whole, leading to major advances in consumer goods across nearly all sectors. Battery-powered devices have become ubiquitous across the world. While the availability of technology is generally a good thing, the rapid growth has led directly to several key ethical and environmental issues surrounding the use of Li
Towards 2D memory technology by magnetic graphene
In spintronics, the magnetic moment of electrons is used to transfer and manipulate information. An ultra-compact 2D spin-logic circuitry could be built from 2D materials that can transport the spin information over long distances and provide strong spin-polarization of charge current. Experiments by physicists suggest that magnetic graphene can be the ultimate choice for these 2D spin-logic devic
