Robots have learned to recognize objects with a glance and a touch.

It is quite easy for people to determine the density andthe relief of the subject, just by looking at it. You might as well say what the object looks like, just touching it with your eyes closed. Such skills would help robots to interact better with objects, but, unfortunately, until now they were not available to them. Researchers from the Laboratory of Artificial Intelligence MIT (CSAIL) decidedContinue Reading

The Very Large Telescope was updated, and began to look for exoplanets in Alpha Centauri

One of the most powerful structures for searching andThe discovery of distant planets is located in Chile, and it is known as the Very Large Telescope (VLT). It is a huge complex of four main and four additional optical telescopes, and for more than 20 years of its existence, he was able to take super-precise photos of Jupiter and discover many distant exoplanets. Henceforth their searchContinue Reading

In Europe, found salt. What does this mean for life near Jupiter?

Europe, the frozen moon near Jupiter, is consideredone of the most habitable worlds in the solar system. It was first examined in detail by the Voyager-1 probe in 1979, showing the surface almost devoid of large craters. This suggests that water regularly flows upward, renewing the surface of the satellite. Europe is also dotted with long hollows, folds and ridges, potentially made of icebergs,Continue Reading
