The Physics of COVID-19 –“People are Like Galaxies”

Posted by in categories: biological, cosmology, military, quantum physics

Some of the greatest medical discoveries of the 20th century came from physicists who switched careers and became biologists. Francis Crick, who won the 1962 Nobel Prize in Physiology and helped identify the structure of DNA, started his career as a physicist, as did Leo Szilard who conceived the nuclear chain reaction in 1933, writing the letter for Albert Einstein’s signature that resulted in the Manhattan Project that built the atomic bomb, but spent the last decades of his life doing pioneering work in biology, including the first cloning of a human cell.

Today, a group of world-renowned researchers at the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics with expertise from cosmology to quantum gravity are using physics to help fight the COVID-19 pandemic.

Communist Party Secretly Supported Chinese Gene-Edited Babies, According to New Book

Posted by in category: genetics

So, based on this there may be secret CP support for making genetic modifications on those babies some time ago!?…

The experiments were deemed “an open secret” at the university where Chinese scientist He Jiankui conducted his experiments, according to this author.

Iconic Arecibo Alien-Hunting Observatory Will Be Demolished

Posted by in categories: alien life, entertainment, mathematics

It’s a sad day. The observatory has not only been used to observe radio wave signals in deep space. It’s also become an iconic landmark over the decades after being featured in countless films and TV shows including the 1995 James Bond blockbuster “GoldenEye.”

The observatory has also made significant contributions to the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI), spotting mysterious radio signals emanating from distant corners of the universe.

“This decision is not an easy one for NSF to make, but safety of people is our number one priority,” Sean Jones, the assistant director for the mathematical and physical sciences directorate at NSF, told reporters today over a conference call, as quoted by The Verge.

Zin Boats reinvents the electric speedboat in a bid to become the Tesla of the sea

Posted by in category: transportation

The automotive industry is knee deep in the vast transition to electric, but one place where gas is still going strong is out on the water. Seattle startup Zin Boats wants to start what you might call a sea change by showing, as Tesla did with cars, that an electric boat can be not just better for the planet, but better in almost every other way as well.

With a minimalist design like a silver bullet, built almost entirely from carbon fiber, the 20-foot Z2R is less than half the weight of comparable craft, letting it take off like a shot and handle easily, while also traveling a hundred miles on a charge — and you can fill the “tank” for about five bucks in an hour or so.

Waiting for the other shoe to drop? Well, it ain’t cheap. But then, few boats are.

This Is How a Laser Weapon Torches Drones Out of the Sky

Posted by in categories: drones, military

This simple laser demonstration is actually a great crash course on how these anti-drone weapons work.

At first glance, this video is just a simple promotional video for Rafael’s Drone Dome, an anti-drone laser weapon. But at just two minutes long, it does a really excellent job at explaining what how a laser weapon actually takes down a drone.

Episode 25 — Getting To Know Andromeda, Our Grand Spiral Neighbor

Posted by in category: cosmology

This is the episode for anyone who’s interested in learning more about our grand spiral neighbor, the Andromeda Galaxy. Join my guest Lowell Observatory, astronomer Phil Massey as we discuss how our beguiling behemoth of a neighbor helped shape contemporary astronomy.

First cataloged by Al Sufi as a mere optical smudge high in the winter sky, the Andromeda Galaxy has lately been a cornerstone of everything we know about contemporary astronomy and the cosmos as a whole. Join Lowell Observatory astronomer Philip Massey as he outlines how this grand spiral neighbor changed what we know about cosmology. And if you happen to be in the Northern hemisphere, by the end of the episode, you may be ready to try and spot the galaxy with just your naked eyes.

Hydrogen-powered VTOL drone flies for 3.5 hours

Posted by in categories: drones, energy

VTOL (vertical take-off and landing) drones are quite versatile, as they combine the vertical flight of a helicopter with the fast and efficient forward flight of a fixed-wing airplane. This one features an extended range, thanks to a fuel cell power system.

The experimental aircraft was developed by a team at the Netherlands’ Delft University of Technology (TU Delft), working with colleagues from the Royal Netherlands Navy and the Netherlands Coastguard. It has a 3-meter wingspan (9.8 ft), weighs 13 kg (29 lb), and features 12 motor/propeller units distributed on its two wings. Even if several of the motors fail, it can reportedly still fly and land successfully.

Hybrid 3D-printing bioinks help repair damaged knee cartilage

Posted by in categories: 3D printing, bioprinting, biotech/medical, life extension

This may be good news for those who have damaged joints due to sports or old age.


Human knees are notoriously vulnerable to injury or wearing out with age, often culminating in the need for surgery. Now researchers have created new hybrid bioinks that can be used to 3D print structures to replace damaged cartilage in the knee.
