NASA: For the first time, we discovered dust from far beyond the solar system

Very interesting news comes to us from scientists from NASA, who for many years supervised the mission of this probe, which studied Saturn and its moons. Well, with the help of the CDA space analyzer (Cosmic Dust Analyzer), i.e. one of the measuring devices installed on board the probe, grains of cosmic dust that did not come from our solar system were detected.

MIT scientists have developed an autonomous boat for transporting people

Researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology can always be counted on when it comes to new technologies, and this time the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) presented us with the development of the idea of \u200b\u200ban autonomous Roboat boat. And where exactly did this idea come from? Of course, it did not come from the air and, as scientists explain, they were asked to create a concept of a fleet of autonomous boats for passenger transport that could prove useful on the narrow city canals of the constitutional Dutch capital, Amsterdam.

See the smallest boat in the world, it is even thinner than a human hair

Researchers from Leiden University have just presented their work, which is probably the smallest boat in the world. The model, which measures just 30 microns in length, was 3D printed as part of a project to create micro-floats with very complex shapes. To take pictures of it, you had to use a scanning electron microscope, i.e. one used to observe and characterize organic and inorganic materials on a nanometric to micrometric scale.

This is what a temporary hospital at the National Stadium looks like inside

The temporary hospital will initially accommodate 500 to 1,000 CoVID-19 patients. They will be staying in several fully professionally equipped branches. They were created in the office segment. In the footage, we can see that these are not some field conditions, but a real hospital was built there.

200 days without a CoVID-19 case. This is how Taiwan is handling the pandemic

It cannot be denied that looking at the daily reports from the world about the coronavirus pandemic, you can be quite broken, because the situation in many places is becoming more and more tragic. And you don't have to look long here, because in our country it is also getting more and more difficult and for several days we have been receiving news about the ending of free beds, respirators or doctors who are barely able to cope. Fortunately, however, there are places that have done better and can now give others hope for a better future - just look at Taiwan, which has not had a single case of Covid-19 in 200 days, is the only such country in the world!

The mysterious X-37B mini-shuttles have been hijacked by the Space Forces

These are the X-37B mini-shuttles that have been carrying out secret missions in Earth's orbit for a decade. The takeover by the Space Force of two of these machines means that their tasks will from now on be closely tied to the execution of defense operations from space and providing the ability to respond to enemy threats in space.

Such sky-high taxis from Lilium will drive passengers around Florida

In the spring of 2017, the German company Lilium presented the amazing capabilities of its fully autonomous and electric vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) aircraft, which is equipped with wings like a real jet and moves thanks to several dozen engines.

China is building rocket factories and sea launch pads for space missions

A year ago, the Middle Kingdom was the third in the world to launch a launch rocket from a sea platform. Now that the country has mastered successful launching from the sea, it intends to build a great seaport. At the same time, new rocket factories are being built to be produced locally, eliminating the need to transport them across the country.

The French army is given the green light for bionic trooper modifications

Considering the frequency of recent reports on the French army, it seems that the country is preparing for a major armed conflict. First, we heard about the plans to build a new nuclear-powered aircraft carrier to replace the flagship Charles de Gaulle, and now we hear about the ethics committee's consent to bionic modification of soldiers. And we're talking about medical therapies, prostheses and implants that improve physical, cognitive, perceptual and psychological capabilities, plus location tracking permission and communication with armed systems and other soldiers.
