NASA is building novel network cables that transfer data during supersonic flight as part of a project to demonstrate the possibility of flying quietly at faster-than-sound speeds.
The space agency has developed new technology for its experimental Quiet SuperSonic Technology X-plane (QueSST), that it claimed reduces loud sonic booms typically heard below aircraft flying at supersonic speeds to a noise similar to a car closing at distance.
NASA has selected European communications giant Nokia to build the first-ever mobile network on the Moon as part of a wider initiative to improve technology access on the lunar surface.
Nokia Bell Labs will begin building the bespoke LTE/4G network and aims to have it deployed by late 2022.
NASA researchers have developed new deep learning techniques powered by Nvidia GPUs that can understand what’s happening beneath the sun’s surface and predict earth-damaging solar flares.
The intense heat created by our nearest star creates a boiling reaction which makes its surface bubbly. These bubbles (or granules) are visible when magnified through telescopic images and offer an indication of what’s happening beneath the sun’s outer layer.
Companies are being asked to share ideas on how 5G terrestrial and space technology could be used to support the UK’s logistics businesses.
The call for proposals is part of a joint effort by the UK Space Agency, the European Space Agency (ESA) and the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS), with hopes of increasing connectivity and closing the digital divide for businesses in the sector.
Lenovo and Intel have announced they have collaborated on a supercomputer for one of the world’s leading blackhole research teams.
The Flatiron Institute, located in New York City, is using high-performance computing (HPC) clusters provided by the two companies to support AI-powered research in astrophysics, quantum physics and computational mathematics. To give you a flavour of the institute’s pedigree, it recently helped prove Einstein’s theory of general relativity by discovering that black holes ‘ring’ like a bell.
