Solar Cell Manufacturing Industry Might Be Revolutionized By A Novel Ferroelectric And Lead-Free Material
Researchers from the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) of the U.S. Department of Energy and the University of California, Berkeley have found a new material that could make it easier to make solar cells and revolutionize the solar cell manufacturing industry.
In order to provide a risk-free alternative to corded charging for mobile devices and to power the Internet of Things (IoT) devices spread throughout an area, researchers at Sejong University in South Korea have developed a new laser charging system that can transmit power using infrared light technology for up to 30 meters (98.4 feet).
As was previously believed, a tiny creature with no anus dating back around 530 million years is not the earliest member of a diverse animal group that encompasses everything from starfish to humans. Even though Saccorhytus coronarius lacked an anus, it was covered with holes, including a ring of tiny ones around its gaping mouth. Those apertures have previously been interpreted as primitive gills utilized for breathing.
The revised versions of Covid-19 boosted from Pfizer and Moderna have been approved by the FDA on Wednesday. The revised Covid-19 vaccinations have just been granted emergency use permission in the US for the first time. Both vaccines are bivalent and combine the company's initial shot with another that specifically targets the BA.4 and BA.5 Omicron sublineages.
Over 15,000 Americans have been affected during the 2022 monkeypox epidemic that has spread to 95 nations. However, the virus may also be spread via intimate contact that does not entail sex. Most recorded cases have occurred in males who have intercourse with other men.
According to recent reports , the largest dinosaur skeleton ever has been discovered in a Portugal man’s backyard. The discovery of fragments of the dinosaur's spine and ribs by paleontologists lend credence to the notion that the enormous reptile measured approximately 12 meters tall and 25 meters long.
The Space Launch System (SLS) and Orion spacecraft were set to take off on a test journey to the moon called Artemis I. However, engine problems delayed the launch. Another effort may be made on September 2 to launch again, but this will depend on the results of ongoing testing.
One of the advantages animals have over humans is the ability to detect the magnetic field of the earth. Humans are unable to do this. Some humans can detect the magnetic field of the earth, according to a study that indicates a neurological trait known as magnetoreceptors is responsible for the ability of some humans to detect the magnetic field.
A novel plastic that decomposes after use produced by University of Tokyo researchers is loaded with enzymes that cause it to degrade in water spontaneously. Plastic contamination in the water has now become a global environmental problem. This study will aid in the reduction of plastic pollution in the ocean.
On Monday, NASA will launch the Artemis I mission, which will involve sending three replica astronauts on a 40-day journey around the moon and there are four artemis launch suspense factors to watch out for. How may we expect to benefit from their journey? The launch of the world's most powerful rocket is only the beginning.
According to recent news, scientists use mealworms to make a seasoning that tastes like meat. It has been discovered that eating insects is a more environmentally friendly option than eating other types of animal proteins. On the other hand, many people find them repulsive.
When you see a video of a reunited dog with its previous owner, you can't help but feel sentimental. The researchers at Japan's Azabu University found evidence that dogs cry happy tears upon seeing their owner again after separation.
One of the cornerstones of a civilized society is the mutual aid practiced by its members. But a new study by researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, shows that sleep deprivation hurts this important human trait, which has real-world consequences.
A 7-million-year-old femur reveals a prehistoric human walked upright. In 2001, archaeologists found two forearm bones and part of a fossilized leg bone in the central African country of Chad. A recent study says that these fossils come from the oldest known hominid.
Jupiter's auroras have never been seen, thanks to the world's newest and largest space telescope. On Monday, scientists unveiled these images of the largest planet in our solar system. Jupiter's northern and southern lights and polar haze were photographed for the first time by the James Webb satellite telescope in July.
NASA invites media to the world's first planetary defense test as its Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART) will impact a target asteroid, which poses no threat to Earth, at 7:14 p.m. EDT on Monday, September 26. DART is the first mission in the world to test technology that could protect Earth from potential threats like asteroids or comets.
NASA announces that the Artemis I is ready for a launch to the moon and back. On Monday, August 20, 2022, the space agency gave the go-ahead for the unmanned Artemis 1 mission to take a test flight around the moon the following week. This is because on Monday, NASA did a review called the Flight Readiness Review.
The discovery of a fly with zombie fungus wins a science photo contest. This zombie fungus that can control the mind of an insect may not be something to cheer about, but a picture of it killing an insect is getting cheers from scientists. The photo is so beautiful that it won the second BMC Ecology and Evolution Image Competition.
