The Arctic is warming twice as fast as the rest of the planet, which comes with both opportunities and risks. Climate change is opening up new shipping routes and increasing access to fossil fuel reserves, while also threatening ecosystems and fueling geopolitical tensions. Are we approaching the end of the polar peace zone? Earlier this month, the Arctic Council met in Finland to frame a collaborative agenda on economic development and environmental protection. But for the first time...

Last night's successful Starlink launch was a big one for SpaceX — its heaviest payload ever, weighed down by 60 communications satellites that will eventually be part of a single constellation providing internet to the globe. That's the plan, anyway — and the company pulled the curtain back a bit more after launch, revealing a few more details about the birds it just put in the air.

Offshore wind power could be a lot cheaper if the generators inside the turbine nacelles were lighter. The U.S. Department of Energy is here to help. DOE recently made available up to $8 million for four projects aiming to “develop more efficient, smaller, and lighter-weight generators.” According to DOE, the prospective designs could result in 50 percent smaller and lighter generators, which could reduce the levelized cost of wind energy by as much as 25 percent. With an eye toward the...

Over the last several years, there has been growing recognition that nuclear energy is an important climate mitigation technology. Several states around the country have shifted from renewable energy mandates to technology-neutral clean energy standards that include nuclear energy, with more states likely to follow suit. Even prominent environmental organizations, including the World Resources Institute, the Environmental Defense Fund, and the Union of Concerned Scientists, have supported...

Polymer materials typically are natural insulators, which makes them well-suited for applications that need to trap heat inside them, like sleeves for coffee cups or oven mitts. However, polymers also are used in electronic devices, which can cause overheating and possible device failure if the heat isn’t somehow dissipated. Heat Conducting Polymers Researchers at MIT now have solved this problem by modifying the natural reaction of polymers and creating polymer films that conduct heat rather...

A new battery design using low cost potassium and oxygen from the air is showing promise, according to a recent news release from The Ohio State University. Although lithium ion batteries have become the standard for everything from cell phones, to electric vehicles (EVs), to power grid support for renewable energy, the high cost of the raw materials used to make the cells and the availability of those materials is becoming a concern. Researchers around the globe are looking for a way to make...

With the proliferation of IoT devices and networks that extend connectivity beyond the plant walls, it’s not surprising that companies are experiencing data breaches. What is surprising is that reported data breaches have grown from 15% of companies using IoT in 2017 to 26% today. And that doesn’t count the companies that don’t know they’ve been breached. A Ponemon Institute study on cybersecurity risk for third-part deployments reveals growing risks of data breaches. (Image source: Ponemon...

Europe, alongside countries such as Japan, is going through a profound demographic shift: stagnating birth rates and increasing life expectancy mean the proportion of older adults is increasing. It is estimated that by 2050, people above 65 years of age will comprise more than 30% of the population of Great Britain, 35% in Germany, and over 40% in Spain. In addition, this age group is increasingly healthy into old age, meaning that even when they move into a care home, they want stimulating...

The perennially popular open-plan interior appeals for allowing natural light to permeate a house or apartment and for making it feel more spacious. Multifunctional rooms that amalgamated all reception rooms first emerged in the late 19th century. But even radically open-plan spaces – espoused by Frank Lloyd Wright and modernist architects in the 1930s – sometimes incorporated sliding doors. Sliding doors and partitions, of course, bring an almost immeasurable number of practical advantages to...
