Google.org announced $10.25 million in investments in a breakthrough energy technology Global Breaking News Google.org Invests $10.25 Million 19-Aug-2008 Google.org announced $10.25 million in investments in a breakthrough energy technology called Enhanced Geothermal Systems (EGS), which expands the potential of geothermal energy by orders of magnitude. Google’s Renewable Energy Cheaper than Coal initiative focuses on solar thermal power, advanced wind, EGS and other potential breakthrough technologies. Available video includes a narrated package introducing EGS and a video of a SketchUp model illustrating how EGS works.

Locusts Improving Car Safety

Posted by who am I On January - 6 - 2009

STORY:
What do Locusts have to do with car technology? Scientists have discovered that the African Locust has a unique internal radar system – which could improve car safety. Volvo hopes by unlocking the secret they can use the technology to cut down on road traffic accidents.

[Jonas Ekmark, Volvo Safety Division]:
“Imagine that you are grasshopper in a swarm of grasshoppers flying over the fields trying to find food. There is almost chaos in the swarm but there are no traffic rules. Still the individual grasshoppers are able to avoid collisions.”

Locusts have a giant movement detector behind their eyes. It releases bursts of energy when they’re on a collision course, allowing them to move out of the way very quickly.

Scientist Dr. Clair Rind made the connection whilst driving.

[Dr. Clair Rind, Newcastle University]:
“I think it was my own experience driving and being a pedestrian and realizing that the ability that I found in the Locust would be very valuable in that context. The Locust has a very quick reaction and the circuits are very reliable and they do their computation against such a lot of clutter and that’s exactly what its like driving in town.”

Every year millions of drivers and pedestrians are injured by cars unable to stop in time.

Volvo wants to reproduce the Locust’s radar system onto a computer chip and install inside a camera.
If they succeed, it would revolutionize road traffic safety. All this could happen within 10-15 years.
And that could mean fewer accidents on the roads.

Since the very first satellites carrying scientific instruments were launched, our understanding of the cosmos has improved. The Sun is studied to the core and, beyond our star, the Universe is becoming less obscure.

Knowledge of the Universe relates directly to humanitys future. Over decades, ESAs science programme has been conducted with long-term vision and, on many occasions, in international partnerships. The Cosmic Vision initiative is now paving the way for future missions that will launch starting in 2015.

Understanding the nature of dark matter, bringing back samples of an asteroid, returning to the moons of Saturn or Jupiter, and establishing whether life existed on Mars, are difficult choices with budgets that are not indefinitely expandable. Priorities have to be set, responsibilities shared, and work must be done in international teams. In pursuing its Space Science effort, Europe is consolidating its technological know-how in many, often unrelated disciplines. The spirit of adventure and exploration also fires the imagination of youngsters, prompting their interest in science.
