[Science] Zero-G space fridge could keep astronaut food fresh for years Regular supply launches keep astronauts aboard the ISS supplied with relatively fresh food, but a flight to Mars won’t get deliveries. If we’re going to visit other planets, we’ll need a fridge that doesn’t break down in space — and Purdue University researchers are hard at work testing one. You may think there’s nothing to […] Published:5/27/2021 3:05:51 PM
[Science] This is your brain on Zoom We all know these constant video calls are doing something to our brains. How else could we get tired and frazzled from sitting around in our own home all day? Well, now Microsoft has done a little brain science and found out that yeah, constant video calls do increase your stress and brain noise. Tell […] Published:4/21/2021 1:32:24 PM
[Science] VC Lindy Fishburne on the sudden democratization of science — and deep tech investing Deep science investor Lindy Fishburne cofounded the seed- and early-stage venture firm Breakout Ventures several years ago, after cofounding Breakout Labs within the Thiel Foundation back in 2011, and she has made a wide array of interesting bets in the process. Among her firm’s portfolio companies is Cortexyme, a company that aims to treat Alzheimer’s […] Published:3/6/2021 2:11:20 AM
[Science] Racial disparity in Chicago cops’ use of force laid bare in new data Analysis of a trove of data extracted from the Chicago Police Department has revealed major differences between how black and white officers, as well as male and female ones, actually enforce the law. This rare apples-to-apples comparison supports the idea that improving diversity in law enforcement may also improve the quality of policing. Historically hard […] Published:2/11/2021 1:22:30 PM
[Science] ‘Frozen’ CG snow and crash-test cadavers offer hints for 60-year-old Russian mystery deaths The Dyatlov Pass incident is the mother of all cold cases: 9 people found dead in 1959, deep in the Ural mountains, under circumstances no one has ever been able to satisfactorily explain. But new research uses simulation techniques from multiple eras to advance what is perhaps the least implausible story of this tragic mystery. […] Published:1/29/2021 2:08:19 PM
[Science] Debunk, don’t ‘prebunk,’ and other psychology lessons for social media moderation If social networks and other platforms are to get a handle on disinformation, it’s not enough to know what it is — you have to know how people react to it. Researchers at MIT and Cornell have some surprising but subtle findings that may affect how Twitter and Facebook should go about treating this problematic […] Published:1/25/2021 5:57:39 PM
[Science] Elon Musk is donating $100M to find the best carbon capture technology Elon Musk said Thursday via a tweet that he will donate $100 million towards a prize for the best carbon capture technology. Musk, who recently surpassed Amazon’s Jeff Bezos to become the world’s richest person, didn’t provide any more details except to add in an accompanying tweet the “details will come next week.” It’s unclear […] Published:1/21/2021 7:30:35 PM
[Science] Remote workers are greener, but their tech still has a real carbon cost The massive shift to remote work due to COVID-19 has resulted in a huge reduction in emissions from vehicles and other sources, but it comes with costs of its own. A new study puts tentative carbon costs on the connectivity and data infrastructure that make working from home possible — and gives you an excuse […] Published:1/20/2021 1:29:58 PM
[Science] MIT develops method for lab-grown plants that eventually lead to alternatives to forestry and farming Researchers at MIT have developed a new method for growing plant tissues in a lab – sort of like how companies and researchers are approaching lab-grown meat. The process would be able to produce wood and fibre in a lab environment, and researchers have already demonstrated how it works in concept by growing simple structures […] Published:1/20/2021 9:06:48 AM
[Science] Amnesia of the Anarcho-Tyrannists, by Michelle Malkin Is it just me or has the entire universe of establishment media, politics and Hollywood forgotten that this country has endured an entire year of relentless violent anarchotyranny? Antifa and Black Lives Matter rioters set businesses and churches ablaze, smashed state capitols and laid siege to federal courthouses. They permanently destroyed precious statues and symbols...
