Using ‘waste’ product from recent NASA research, scientists create transformative nanomaterials

Posted by in categories: chemistry, energy, nanotechnology, physics, space, sustainability

Researchers at the University of Sussex have discovered the transformative potential of Martian nanomaterials, potentially opening the door to sustainable habitation on the red planet.

Using resources and techniques currently applied on the International Space Station and by NASA, Dr. Conor Boland, a Lecturer in Materials Physics at the University of Sussex, led a research group that investigated the potential of nanomaterials—incredibly tiny components thousands of times smaller than a —for clean energy production and on Mars.

Taking what was considered a by NASA and applying only sustainable production methods, including water-based chemistry and low-energy processes, the researchers have successfully identified within gypsum nanomaterials—opening the door to potential clean energy and sustainable technology production on Mars.

Australian wind farm switches to AI-powered tech to save eagles

Posted by in categories: robotics/AI, sustainability

The AI-guided system will stop turbines from spinning when birds are flying in the vicinity and create a safe zone.

Wind turbine collisions are responsible for over 679,000 bird deaths in the US alone every year. To protect vulnerable birds, wind farms can also be shut down.

Nearly half of new passenger cars in EU electrified —ACEA

Posted by in categories: sustainability, transportation

Dec 20 (Reuters) — Sales of electric cars in the European Union were almost half of all new passenger car registrations in the EU between January and November 2023 and already crossed the halfway mark in the month of November alone, data showed on Wednesday.

Electrified vehicles — either fully electric models, plug-in hybrids or full hybrids — accounted for over 47.6% of all new passenger car registrations in the EU as of November, up from 43% in the same period last year, the European Automobile Manufacturers Association (ACEA) said.

New-car registrations in the EU increased 6.7% in November, the 16th consecutive month of growth, with a year-on-year rise of 13.3% in the registration of electric vehicles. Petrol car registrations grew by 4.2%, while diesel dropped by 10.3%, the data showed.
