Researchers from the University of Southern California have found that Elon Musk's Starlink satellites might be harming Earth's ozone layer. Their study, published in Geophysical Research Letters, says that when these satellites reenter the atmosphere, they release a lot of aluminum oxide. This could speed up the depletion of the ozone layer, which protects us from dangerous UV rays that can cause skin cancer and hurt crops.

With more than 8,000 satellites in low-earth orbit, this raises big environmental concerns and worries about space debris.

Today is the in the Northern Hemisphere! ☀️

It marks the official start to summer and the longest day of the year. Why? Our planet rotates on a tilted axis as it goes around the Sun, which changes how long a ‘day’ is.

Physicists find a new way to represent π 19/06/2024

Physicists find a new way to represent π While investigating how string theory can be used to explain certain physical phenomena, scientists at the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) have stumbled upon on a new series representation for the irrational number π. It provides an easier way to extract π from calculations involved in decipher...

Researchers at the University of Tokyo, created and trained a "musculoskeletal humanoid" named Musashi to drive a small electric car on a test track.

Musashi, equipped with two cameras as eyes, can view the road ahead and see reflections in the car's side mirrors.

Using its mechanical hands, it can operate the car key, engage the handbrake, and activate the turn signal. Its anti-slip "feet" allow Musashi to control the accelerator and brake pedals.

After instructing Musashi using raw sensor data to operate the car’s steering wheel, the researchers succeeded in guiding the robot to turn at an intersection while obeying traffic lights.

According to the researchers, Musashi did operate the accelerator in a different test. However, it struggled to maintain a steady speed, especially on steep inclines.

Clearly, there is room for improvement. Thankfully, the researchers are ready for the task, aiming to create an advanced robot and software. Perhaps in a few decades, Musashi could be driving your taxi around Tokyo.

Boeing Has Gone To Space And Didn't Fall Down From The Sky This Time.

The company's first crewed spaceflight mission finally launched Wednesday and safely docked with the International Space Station earlier this afternoon. ⁠

In true Boeing fashion, the milestone was delayed several years and came in $1.5 billion over budget. Yesterday's launch was even delayed on two occasions over minor leaks and computer issues.⁠

Despite a clean launch, the journey itself wasn't flawless. The crew of two astronauts ran into those minor leaks again and temporarily lost some thrusters on the way, neither of which presented true safety issues. They'll stay on the ISS for the next week before returning home on the Starliner. ⁠

For Boeing, the success puts them on track to be certified by NASA to shuttle astronauts full-time. ⁠

The mission marked just the sixth inaugural journey of a crewed spacecraft in US history: Gemini, Apollo, Space Shuttle, SpaceX's Dragon, and now Boeing's Starliner. ⁠
