Brain Implants Can Allow People To Control Machines With Their Mind

Brain Implant Developed In Australia Can Allow People To Control Machines With Their Minds

by CHIRPon June 6, 2016
Scientists in Australia are currently in the process of developing an implant that will give paralyzed and heavily disabled patients the ability to control machines through their thoughts as well as monitor and predict seizures. Able to record specific brain activity and function, the tiny implant known as astentrode will eventually be placed into a blood vessel located […]
Tesla Self Driving Collecting 3 Mil Miles Daily

Tesla Is Gathering Twice As Many Miles of Self-Driving Data Every Day Compared To Google’s Entire Atonomous Project

by CHIRPon June 2, 2016
If you combine the total miles driven in autonomous mode by all Tesla Model S and X’s on the road at the moment, you get about 3 million miles a day. That’s about twice the distance that Google’s self-driving car project has done since it’s start. What does this mean? It means that Tesla is collecting a much larger amount of […]

Watch This Time-Lapse of NASA’s Expandable Habitat Inflating On The ISS

by CHIRPon May 31, 2016
Just this past Saturday, NASA successfully deployed the first ever expandable habitat on the ISS (International Space Station). Astronaut Jeff Williams inflated the habitat called the Bigelow Expandable Activity Module (BEAM) with the help from ground control. Controlling a valve, he gradually released air into the module in about 25 short bursts. By inflating the expandable habitat in bursts, […]

entropy directly linked to time

New Study Suggests That Dark Energy Is The Reason Time Moves Forward

by CHIRPon May 24, 2016
The Second Law of Thermodynamics tells us that the disorder of a closed system like our universe must always increase, never decrease. Also known as ‘entropy’, it’s the reason that things do no reassemble or come back to life. When objects like stars, our planet and humanity are created, they add energy to the universe. This in turn adds […]
