Revolutionary microshutter technology hurdles significant challenges Tuesday July 29th, 2014 04:00:00 AM
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NASA technologists have hurdled a number of significant technological challenges in their quest to improve an already revolutionary observing technology originally created for the James Webb Space Telescope.

NASA-funded X-ray instrument settles interstellar debate Tuesday July 29th, 2014 04:00:00 AM
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) New findings from a NASA-funded instrument have resolved a decades-old puzzle about a fog of low-energy X-rays observed over the entire sky. Thanks to refurbished detectors first flown on a NASA sounding rocket in the 1970s, astronomers have now confirmed the long-held suspicion that much of this glow stems from a region of million-degree interstellar plasma known as the local hot bubble, or LHB.

NASA sees developing Tropical Storm Halong causing warning Tuesday July 29th, 2014 04:00:00 AM
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NASA infrared satellite data revealed that Tropical Storm Halong is surrounded by strong thunderstorms and an eye appears to be developing.

Study: Contrary to image, city politicians do adapt to voters Tuesday July 29th, 2014 04:00:00 AM
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology) Urban politicians in the US are responsive to voters' views, regardless of the form of government.

Vision-correcting display makes reading glasses so yesterday Tuesday July 29th, 2014 04:00:00 AM
(University of California - Berkeley) Researchers at UC Berkeley are developing vision-correcting displays that can compensate for a viewer's visual impairments to create sharp images without the need for glasses or contact lenses. The technology could potentially help those who currently need corrective lenses to use their smartphones, tablets and computers, and could one day aid people with more complex visual problems.

SPIE launches Neurophotonics journal with special section on BRAIN Initiative Tuesday July 29th, 2014 04:00:00 AM
(SPIE--International Society for Optics and Photonics) Coinciding with the launch of the BRAIN Initiative in the USA, the new journal Neurophotonics, published by SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics, will facilitate further collaboration on technological advances in optogenetics, photoacoustics, spectroscopy, and more. This understanding will have significant medical and cognitive applications, and contribute to a comprehensive understanding of the brain.

This week from AGU: Cell tower rain gauges, lightning channels, North Sea storm surge Tuesday July 29th, 2014 04:00:00 AM
(American Geophysical Union) This week from AGU: Cell phone tower rain gauges, lightning channels, North Sea storm surge.

NASA sees warmer cloud tops as Tropical Storm Hernan degenerates Tuesday July 29th, 2014 04:00:00 AM
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Tropical Storm Hernan degenerated into a remnant low pressure area on July 29. Infrared imagery from NASA's Aqua satellite revealed cloud tops were warming as the storm weakened.

A new way to make microstructured surfaces Tuesday July 29th, 2014 04:00:00 AM
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology) A team of researchers has created a new way of manufacturing microstructured surfaces that have novel three-dimensional textures. These surfaces, made by self-assembly of carbon nanotubes, could exhibit a variety of useful properties -- including controllable mechanical stiffness and strength, or the ability to repel water in a certain direction.
