Elon Musk's Neuralink: Two neurosurgeons weigh in on the feasibility of Musk's brain implant and its potential
Elon Musk's Neuralink is being positioned as the next big thing that will completely change modern medicine if some people are to be believed. But what do medical professionals think about brain-computer interfaces or BCIs curing diseases such as blindness or paralysis?
While neurotechnology and brain-computer interfaces have been around for decades, Elon Musk's Neuralink aims to package it into a coin-sized implant and take it to the masses. The implant would not only let humans interact with computers just through thought, but also augment the nervous system.
SpaceX inches closer to an orbital launch attempt, test-fires its Super Heavy rocket for its longest duration
The Elon-Musk-owned space organisation test-fired its Super Heavy rockets for about 12 seconds, making it the longest duration for which the massive booster has been fired. SpaceX hopes to make its orbital launch attempt in December, or early 2023.
The Archean Earth The Archean eon represents one third of our planet’s history, from 2.5 billion years ago to four billion years ago
The Agnikul launchpad (ALP) and the Agnikul mission control centre (AMCC) are the two parts of the privately built launch facility and has been built inside ISRO’s campus at Sriharikota.
Humans will be living & working on the Moon by the end of this decade thanks to Artemis 1, says NASA
NASA is confident that if the Artemis 1 Mission is successful, they will be able to put astronauts on the moon for a long-term basis who are going to be living on the surface and do research by as early as 2024-2025.
Believing that long-term space exploration will require such experiments, a team of Chinese scientists are planning to send macaque monkeys to the Tiangong Space Station and study how the reproduce.
The total lunar eclipse will continue for a total duration of 45 minutes and 48 seconds. Only portions of eastern India can witness a total lunar eclipse, while the remainder of the country can only witness a partial eclipse.
China now has their own space station, successfully dock the final module of the Tiangong space station
The US govt. banned NASA from working with Beijing in 2011. The Chinese govt., in a span of two years, sent up the core module, three manned spacecraft, the Wentian lab module and several cargo spacecraft to build their own space station.
NASA plans on testing crash landing space module on Mars to make inter-planetary exploration cheaper
In a bid to make inter-planetary travel cheaper and more far-reaching, NASA is planning to test out crash landing onto the planet Mars with their newly designed SHIELD experimental lander.
For the first time, astronomers and scientists were able to observe a black hole spewing out unidentified materials back into space after it consumed a star in a process called TDE or Tidal Disruption Event.
NASA’s DART mission which crashed into a minor asteroid called Dimorphos has been declared a success. The crash has resulted in a significant shift in the orbit of the said asteroid.
As creepy as it sounds, human composting or the speedy process of turning the deceased body of a loved one into organic soil is fast becoming a reality in countries where traditional burials and cremations can be expensive and polluting.
Explained: What spacecraft is NASA using for its DART mission and how is it going to save the planet from Asteroids
The spacecraft being used in the DART mission by NASA is a basic satellite with very sparse equipment which consists of one single colour camera, an ion engine and a few basic solar panels.
NASA to launch unmanned Artemis I mission today; to send SLS rocket, Orion capsule on 42 days voyage around moon
Artemis I will not carry astronauts, nor land on the moon. However, the mission is critical to demonstrate that NASA's monster rocket and deep space capsule can deliver on their promised abilities
The planet is not the closest ‘super-Earth’ that we know of but Planet TOI-1452 b is an exoplanet that is close enough and potentially full of water
More than 50 years later, Apollo still stands as NASA's greatest achievement. For Artemis, NASA will be drawing from a diverse astronaut pool currently numbering 42 and is extending the time crews will spend on the moon to at least a week
The giant Space Launch System rocket will make its maiden flight from Launch Complex 39B at Kennedy Space Center in Florida on Monday
Explained: Why Russia’s withdrawal from the ISS is a big deal and how it may affect space exploration
Russia’s Roscomos has announced that they will be withdrawing from the ISS after 2024, once the current contract between ISS members expires. We see why this may turn out to be a huge blow to the ISS, as well as space exploration in general.
A group of researchers at the IISc have developed a new framework for analogue chipsets that would allow AI and ML-based applications to run much faster and in an efficient manner. The researchers have named the new framework ARYABHAT.
