Meet Loyal Wingman, the first fully autonomous aerial killing drone

DARPA and Boeing are jointly implementing another amazing project that is to change beyond recognition future air combat and the implementation of even the most daring missions. It is about Air Combat Evolution (ACE), i.e. a system of cooperation between pilots, drones and artificial intelligence. The Pentagon wants to ultimately eliminate pilots, but before that happens, it wants to support them with the latest artificial intelligence systems and use the advantages of each side and give them an advantage in all conditions and over each enemy.

Samsung and Stanford University announce a groundbreaking OLED display for VR

When Won-Jae Joo was visiting Stanford University in 2016-2018, he heard about an innovative idea there, i.e. ultra-thin solar cells that have the chance to mess up a lot of renewable energy, which immediately lit a few lamps in his head. After the presentation, it quickly became clear that Samsung would not miss such an opportunity and the units decided to cooperate, which resulted in a new architecture of organic light emitting diodes (OLED), significantly increasing the pixel density. This is a real breakthrough that can provide virtual reality with a whole new opening, deepening immersion to an unprecedented level.

Poles discovered the smallest planet traversing the galaxy alone

There would be nothing unusual about this discovery, because we know many such exoplanets, were it not for the fact that it is the smallest such object known to us. Amazingly, the planet is the size of the Earth. Until now, astronomers believed that there were no such small objects of this type in our galaxy. Now we know that there may be more.

Special plates from a 3D printer will fight for the biodiversity of the edge bands

The most problematic in such situations are the small sea creatures living in the coastal zone, which like to hide in nooks between stones or cracks in the walls. There, it is much easier for them to get food, hide from predators or wait out the scorching sun at low tide. Unfortunately, artificial barriers are usually flat cement walls, which are not able to replace the natural ones, or at least this has been the case until now, because scientists came up with an idea how to prevent it.

A mild history of CoVID-19 increases the risk of mental illness

It is worth emphasizing that the research did not involve questioning people who had had Covid-19 (which could give false results because many people do not want to admit to strangers that they have mental problems), but a huge database of patients. They show that convalescents report anxiety, depression or insomnia twice as often as people suffering from other diseases. "Many people feared that Covid-19 survivors would be at increased risk of developing mental illness, and unfortunately our large and detailed research suggests that they are," explains study author Paul Harrison.

Yesterday, the Arecibo Observatory was completely destroyed. See it in photos

Yesterday on the Twitter profile of the American National Science Foundation (NSF), to which the Arecibo Observatory belongs, there was a sad entry about another disaster at the famous facility. This time, a 900-ton platform with a receiver fell onto the canopy of the radio telescope, which hung 150 meters on it. The destruction is so extensive that there is no hope of rebuilding this historic building.

Elon Musk: The first humans will arrive on Mars in 2026. They will fly with a Starship

Both dates are not accidental. Every 26 months, the Red Planet moves closer to the Earth. Then the start window appears, which allows the shortest flight there. Musk chose 2024 for the Starship's first flight as it will be space-ready in mid-2022, so it won't catch a quick flight this year.

Amazon has it all but didn't have one. Now it does. Zoox is ahead of you

Jeff Bezos controls cloud computing, creates environmentally friendly technologies, has chain stores, builds robots, and will soon offer space tourism. His world only lacked something that would change public transport for better. Now that has changed. On December 14, Zoox, which Amazon bought for $ 1.3 billion, will unveil its fully electric autonomous city vehicle.

Dangerous allergic reactions may occur after the application of the vaccine for CoVID-19 from Pfizer

The British media and medical services reported that there have already been several cases of anaphylactic shock in vaccinated people in the UK, which occurred shortly after receiving the mRNA vaccine from Pfizer and BioNTech. The case mainly concerns doctors and nurses, as it is the medical staff who are first vaccinated in this country.

It's amazing, our ancestors most likely had the ability to hibernate

Interestingly, the latest research indicates that we once had it, although we were not the best at it. When a bear wakes up from hibernation, its bones and muscles are practically the same as when it went to sleep, because its body has learned not to eat itself. Instead, a specialized metabolic process comes into play that protects the animals during a prolonged nap, provided they have sufficient supplies in advance. If they fail to do so, they must take into account that hibernation may end badly - rickets, hyperparathyroidism or bone dystrophy are some of the possibilities that, according to the researchers, could also have happened to our ancestors falling asleep for the winter.

The Milky Way still feels the effects of the collision with the mysterious galaxy

More recently, the world of astronomy has heard that the Milky Way's disc is wrinkled vertically, just like a sheet of roofing. Astronomers wondered why this was happening. Eventually, they decided to take a closer look at the newly discovered galaxy Antlia 2, which is currently 130,000 light-years from the center of our galaxy.

Artificial intelligence refreshed Ayrton Senna's run at the Monaco GP in 1990

Ayrton Senna, a Brazilian racing driver, three-time Formula 1 world champion, died in an accident at the track in Imola, Italy in 1994. Until the last moment, he did what he loved, which was to drive the car on one of the most difficult tracks in the world.
