The never-ending discussion over whether dinosaurs were cold-blooded like modern reptiles or warm-blooded like modern birds have been rejuvenated by a new study. Researchers from Yale University used a new technique to analyze the arrangement of atoms in dinosaur eggshells to conclude that the mothers who carried the eggs had warmer body temperatures than their […]

MIT researchers have developed a framework to divert an incoming asteroid, considering asteroid’s mass and momentum, its proximity to a gravitational keyhole, and the amount of warning time that scientists have of an impending collision. Scientists have used this method on near-Earth asteroids Apophis and Bennu which is the target of OSIRIS-REx, an operational NASA […]

MIT researchers have developed a “sensorized” skin, made with kirigami-inspired sensors, that gives soft robots greater awareness of the motion and position of their bodies. The newly developed soft sensors are conductive silicone sheets cut into kirigami patterns and have “piezoresistive” properties i.e they can change in electrical resistance when stretched. When the sensor distorted […]
