NIC manager Sadie Mills says staff on research vessels and fisheries observers use identification guides to help them to identify common species and over the past few years have become much more proficient at what they do.
This process is known as exciton fission and means that the solar cell is able to use high energy photons from the blue-green part of the visible spectrum. Baldo says that using tetracene could bump the theoretical energy efficiency limit up to 35 percent—higher than was ever thought possible for single-junction cells.
For these reasons, shoe companies have been actively experimenting with materials to replace EVA.Two years ago, running shoe giant New Balance teamed up with Somerville, Massachusetts–based 3D-printing company Formlabs to develop a new type of sole.
YouTubers like Tana Mongeau, Jeffree Star, and Jake Paul have turned showing off wealth into its own genre.
Tom Simonite covers artificial intelligence for WIRED.Using Amazon’s facial recognition technology, Spotlight quickly returned a list of online sex ads featuring the girl’s photo. Thorn has previously built language processing tools to help law enforcement officers find child abuse content on the dark web.
When the Large Hadron Collider smashes lead ions together, the collisions regularly reach temperatures of 5.5 trillion degrees Celsius, or 10,000 times hotter than the core of the sun.
According to iFixit, the company that publishes online repair guides, sells parts, and shares information on consumer products after it has torn them apart, the new MacBook Pro keyboard does appear to have some different materials in it. Wiens says he's skeptical these material changes will fix all of the issues with the newer keyboards.
He introduced his guest as the cofounder of WikiLeaks, which “reveals corporate and government secret documents.” For the first time, Colbert continued gravely, his show would be using pixelated imagery and voice-altering technology during the interview.
These overdue moves illustrate the companies’ ability to identify and police false content, and they undercut a notion widely embraced in the social media industry that Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube shouldn’t be “arbiters of the truth.” WIRED OPINION ABOUT Paul M.
Gaze Upon the Black Magic of Electrical Discharge Machining Reliable EDM It’s not every day that industrial machining sends you into a fit of joy.
Consider these leftovers from a violent death some 20,000 light years away, a supernova remnant called G54.1+0.3. In this image (the nebula NGC 1333, about 1,000 light years from Earth) these specific Herbig-Haro objects, numbered 7 to 11, are speeding away from the very young star SVS 13, which had spit out highly energized jets of gas that then interacted with surrounding clouds.
The 75-inch display will still likely cost a fortune, whenever it ends up shipping; Sivori says the company will provide an update on timing sometime later this year, not a hopeful sign for 2019 gratification.
These combination or “multi-junction” cells have already hit efficiencies above 40 percent—twice that of a traditional solar panel on the market today.“The most important thing to getting this technology to the market is being very open to unique use cases,” says Paul Meissner, CEO of Silicon Valley-based startup Energy Everywhere, one of a handful of new companies trying to develop perovskite, along with other unproven technologies.
Depending on what material a given company uses to solve its electrode problem, you could expect a folding screen to potentially lack the brightness you’re accustomed to as well.A transparent, foldable display isn't a single entity forged in the depths of Mount Samsung.
To learn what gases plastics were releasing, the research team collected samples of the seven most common types of consumer plastic — both newly produced pieces and fragments fished from the ocean — and monitored the objects' gas production while floating in seawater or exposed to air.
