Back to the black stuff?
"A vinyl recording is probably the closest you can get to hearing what the original artist intended us to hear" Since 2007 something has been stirring or rather revolving. Vinyl sales having been on the brink of extinction have been steadily climbing. The...
Obama’s supercomputer order gets a step closer
"A modern supercomputer’s electricity bill can easily top £60 million pounds" Back in July 2015, Obama put executive orders out for the USA to build the world's fastest supercomputer by 2025, this order created the National Strategic Computing Initiative....

- Fastest industry standard optical fiberon May, 2023 at 4:54 pm
An optical fiber about the thickness of a human hair can now carry the equivalent of more than 10 million fast home internet connections running at full capacity.
- Symmetry breaking by ultrashort light pulses...on May, 2023 at 4:54 pm
Researchers have demonstrated a novel concept for exciting and probing coherent phonons in crystals of a transiently broken symmetry. The key of this concept lies in reducing the symmetry of a crystal by appropriate optical excitation, as has been shown with the prototypical crystalline semimetal […]
- Self-driving cars lack social intelligence in...on May, 2023 at 4:54 pm
Self-driving cars fall short when it comes to understanding the social codes in traffic that let human drivers decide whether to give way or drive on, according to new research.
- New tool may help spot 'invisible' brain damage...on May, 2023 at 4:54 pm
An artificial intelligence computer program that processes magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can accurately identify changes in brain structure that result from repeated head injury, a new study in student athletes shows. These variations have not been captured by other traditional medical images […]
- The next generation of solar energy collectors...on May, 2023 at 4:54 pm
The next generation of sustainable energy technology might be built from some low-tech materials: rocks and the sun. Using a new approach known as concentrated solar power, heat from the sun is stored then used to dry foods or create electricity. A team has found that certain soapstone and granite […]
- Hidden in plain sight: Windshield washer fluid is...on May, 2023 at 4:54 pm
Exhaust fumes probably come to mind when considering vehicle emissions, but they aren't the only source of pollutants released by a daily commute. Researchers report that alcohols in windshield washer fluid account for a larger fraction of real-world vehicle emissions than previous estimates have […]
Header Banner: Speed is the name of the game. The DarkDrug logo shows an Intel Xeon microchip die. Xeon is a brand of x86 microprocessors designed, manufactured, and marketed by Intel, targeted at the non-consumer workstation, server, and embedded system markets. It was introduced in June 1998. The advent ofoptical fibre cable has allowed the speed of data transmission to reach dizzy heights (shown in the DarkDrug logo). The field of applied science and engineering concerned with the design and application of optical fibers is known as fibre optics. The term was coined by Indian physicist Narinder Singh Kapany, who is widely acknowledged as the father of fibre optics.
