Solar solution may make nuclear waste storage safer In the recent work, researchers improved on all three variables: capacity, rate, and reuse. The key advance was to create a conductive hybrid fiber incorporating carbon and amidoxime. By sending pulses of electricity down the fiber, they altered the properties of the hybrid fiber so that more uranyl ions could be collected. Postdoctoral scholar Chong Liu oversaw the lab tests that compared Stanford's amidoxime-carbon hybrid fibers with today's amidoxime fibers. First she tested how much uranyl each type of fiber could hold before reaching saturation. The findings show that by the time the standard amidoxime fiber had become saturated, the amidoxime-carbon hybrid fibers had already adsorbed nine times as much uranyl and were still not saturated. What's more, the electrified fiber captured three times as much uranyl during an 11-hour test using seawater from Half Moon Bay, about an hour from Stanford, and had three times the useful lifespan of the standard amidoxime.

Emma Sims 3 min 21 sec ago Space Youll remember the controversy when Pluto got demoted to dwarf planet status in 2006. Now it seems it could be set to rejoin the ranks of planets in our solar system, along with over 100 others, including Earth’s moon, Jupiter’s moon Ganymede, and Titan and Enceladus, which orbit Saturn and Europa. A team of six NASA scientists, headed by Alan Stern, primary investigator of NASA’s New Horizons Mission to Pluto, have instigated a proposed change to the definition of what constitutes a planet. Their renewed position hinges on one key point : they believe that in order to constitute planets, celestial bodies in the Solar System do not need to orbit the Sun. The change shifts emphasis onto the physical properties of the cosmic bodies themselves, rather than comportment with external bodies.

Trevor Mahlmann SpaceX launched from the most hallowed ground of the US space enterprise on Sunday—the place where nearly all of the Moon launches occurred, and about 80 percent of all the space shuttle missions, including the vehicle's final flight in 2011. Just as SpaceX brought the pad back to life with its launch this weekend, so too could Launch Complex 39A rejuvenate the innovative rocket company based in California. It has been a difficult two years for SpaceX. Accidents in 2015 and 2016 cost the rocket company two boosters, and two payloads. On Friday, during a news conference near the launch pad, company president Gwynne Shotwell acknowledged that the last two years were "painful" for SpaceX, adding that it is hard to make money when you're not flying.

At a time when no distance is too far, chalking out missions to the moon or idle talk of colonizing Mars are upending dinner table conversations. From cautious crawls to risky leaps, humanity has traversed many years to reach this milestone, the scope of which is being broadened with remarkable frequency. ISRO's latest feat of launching 104 satellites on a single rocket may have set off a big bang of congratulatory messages from the world over including SpaceX scion Elon Musk, but what is notable is that its growing list of accomplishments is opening up the space for more star-gazing enterprises to explore more as they aim to shoot for the moon and beyond. Moonshot One such group, that goes by the name of Team Indus, has captured the imagination and attention of not just space aficionados, but sceptics in the space too. The Bangalore-based aerospace engineers under the startup Axiom Research Labs is the only Indian team in the final five competing to be the first privately-funded entity to moonshot as it readies itself for a monumental space mission later this year.

Ignition and lift-off of the Falcon 9 to the space station on the first commercial launch of Kennedy Space Center's historic pad 39A. A Space X rocket has successfully taken off from the same launch site used by the first men to walk on the moon. The moonshot complex 39A was used by Apollo 11 taking Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin to the moon in 1969. Space X - a commercial company - plans to send astronauts into space next year - using advanced technology that enabled the massive booster rocket to return to the launchpad today and land vertically.

I am lucky I change my Thai! It is a different one! What does it mean to you, for the trophy to be named after you? It came as a big surprise. When it came by letter, I was over the moon.
