"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....

  • Sidewinding young stellar jets spied by Gemini...
    on January, 2022 at 9:55 pm

    Sinuous stellar jets meander lazily across a field of stars in new images. The gently curving stellar jets are the outflow from young stars, and astronomers suspect their sidewinding appearances are caused by the gravitational attraction of companion stars. These crystal-clear observations were […]

  • Form fit: Device wraps around hot surfaces, turns...
    on January, 2022 at 7:54 pm

    The energy systems that power our lives also produce wasted heat -- like heat that radiates off hot water pipes in buildings and exhaust pipes on vehicles. A new flexible thermoelectric generator can wrap around pipes and other hot surfaces and convert wasted heat into electricity more efficiently […]

  • Rusting iron can be its own worst enemy
    on January, 2022 at 7:54 pm

    Atom-level simulations reveal the reason iron rusts in supposedly 'inert' supercritical carbon dioxide fluid. Trace amounts of water can cause a reaction at the interface between iron and the fluid, prompting the formation of corrosive chemicals.

  • Harnessing noise in optical computing for AI
    on January, 2022 at 7:54 pm

    A research team has developed an optical computing system for AI and machine learning that not only mitigates the noise inherent to optical computing but actually uses some of it as input to help enhance the creative output of the artificial neural network within the system.

  • New efficiency record for solar cell technology
    on January, 2022 at 5:48 pm

    A research team has set a new record in the power conversion efficiency of solar cells made using perovskite and organic materials. Their latest work demonstrated a power conversion efficiency of 23.6%, approaching that of conventional silicon solar cells. This technological breakthrough paves the […]

  • How robots learn to hike
    on January, 2022 at 5:48 pm

    Researchers have developed a new control approach that enables a legged robot, called ANYmal, to move quickly and robustly over difficult terrain. Thanks to machine learning, the robot can combine its visual perception of the environment with its sense of touch for the first time.

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.
