Flow Batteries Could Revolutionise Electric Vehicle Infrastructure

Researchers from the University of Glasgow suggest that electric cars could be charged and operational far quicker by using a revolutionary type of energy storage. |SOURCE| A new type of energy storage system could revolutionise electric car charging times and energy storage, according to researchers from the University of Glasgow. In a paper [...] Read more

Sleeplessness Is Ruining Your Social Life

Everyone knows how it feels to waste precious nighttime hours on Facebook and become too tired to interact with actual people the next day. New research from the University of California, Berkeley sheds light on that phenomenon, showing that sleeplessness might be even more detrimental to your social life than it already seems. Sleep deprivation, [...] Read more

Researchers Move Closer to Completely Optical Artificial Neural Network

Researchers have shown that it is possible to train artificial neural networks directly on an optical chip. The significant breakthrough demonstrates that an optical circuit can perform a critical function of an electronics-based artificial neural network and could lead to less expensive, faster and more energy efficient ways to perform complex [...] Read more

New Horizons may have seen a glow at the solar system’s edge

The ultraviolet signal may mark a wall of hydrogen where the sun’s influence wanes. |SOURCE| The New Horizons spacecraft has spotted an ultraviolet glow that seems to emanate from near the edge of the solar system. That glow may come from a long-sought wall of hydrogen that represents where the sun’s influence wanes, the New Horizons team reports [...] Read more
