Axon moves past role as a nerve cell’s foot soldier

In a new study by the Harvard’s Department of Stem Cell and Regenerative Biology in collaboration with a joint department between Harvard Medical School and the...
MSU engineers developed and patented a sign language translator technology that – unlike prior mechanisms – is non-invasive and as portable as a tube of Chapstick.

New Sign Language Translator breaks through sign language barriers

Engineers from Michigan State University have recently devised a sign language translator to provide a ubiquitous solution to sign language translation. Unlike previous translator...

Mars rover opportunity ends mission after 15 years

Goodbye to NASA's Mars rover Opportunity. NASA’s robotic geologist fitted with an array of tools to search for evidence of water, ended its mission...
NASA's Spectro-Photometer for the History of the Universe, Epoch of Reionization and Ices Explorer (SPHEREx) mission is targeted to launch in 2023. SPHEREx will help astronomers understand both how our universe evolved and how common are the ingredients for life in our galaxy’s planetary systems. Credits: Caltech

NASA now wants to explore the origin of the Universe

In a new mission, NASA has decided to explore the origin of the universe- solving a long term mystery- how our universe evolved and how...
MIT researchers have developed a chip that leverages sub-terahertz wavelengths for object recognition, which could be combined with light-based image sensors to help steer driverless cars through fog. Image courtesy of the researchers

Giving keener electric eyesight to autonomous vehicles

Autonomous vehicles largely depend on light-based image sensors to see through blind conditions. But those sensors often struggle in some conditions like heavy rain,...
