The SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY News Thread

For stories or videos about the latest (or greatest) science news, technologies and technological breakthroughs, just to see what kind of SCIENCE mankind's been up to.

I start with this one that made my jaw drop to the floor...

Hadron Collider 'could act as telephone for talking to the past'

"Spurs-a-jingle boffins in America say that the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), most
puissant matter-rending machine ever assembled by humanity, may also turn out
to be the first time machine ever built. According to the physicists' calculations,
instruments at the mighty particle-smasher may soon detect signs of "singlets"
which it has not yet generated, sent back from their creation in the future."

Hmm, how soon can we open Stein's Gate?

I guess the ring tone for the phone is going to sound like this;

Nerds! Darpa Wants Your Advice on Interstellar Flight

"Darpa recently launched a program called the 100 Year Starship, which is exactly
what it sounds like: an effort to achieve interstellar flight by the year 2111. This
being Darpa, they’re dead serious. And they also recognize that 2011-era
technology probably isn’t good enough to forecast the state of the art over the
next 100 years."

Amazing finds man.

I have a new theory. I am starting to think that everything that the human mind can think of is literally possible to achieve. The limiting factor to make reality anything we think of is based on our state of consciousness and our level of knowledge.

Of course. Anything is possible with enough ingenuity and technological background. All we need is the parts and a dedicated team.

Fire-quenching electric forcefield backpack invented

"Boffins in America say they're on the track of a backpack electro-beam forcefield
device capable of snuffing out raging fires without any need for water, hoses or
other traditional firefighting apparatus. Apart from portable applications, they
raise the possibility that the new technology might replace building sprinkler
systems with ceiling mounted conflagration-squelching zapper terminals."

OK, "Touchable Holograms". What's the first thing that comes to your mind?

Spoiler:

The technology consists of software that uses ultrasonic waves to create pressure on the hand of a user “touching” the projected hologram.

Researchers are using two Wiimotes from Nintendo’s Wii gaming system to track a user’s hand.

The technology was introduced at SIGGRAPH, an annual computer graphics conference, and has so far only been tested with relatively simple objects.

But its inventors have big plans for touchable holograms in the future.
Oh... and imagine how gaming will change due to this tech.

And a theme song to this thread. XD

It gets weirder:

"However, if scientists could control the production of Higgs singlets, they might be able to send messages to the past or future."

The LHC, then, might function as a transmitter for communicating across time – or, it would seem, as a possible means of sending messages across the three-dimensional universe faster than light can travel through it.

Scientists Create First Memory Expansion for Brain

"Scientists have created a chip that allows rats to instantly know things. It's
amazing.

After studying the chemical interactions that allow short-term learning and
memorization in rats, a group of scientists lead by Dr. Theodore Berger—from the
University of South California's Viterbi School of Engineering—have built a
prosthetic chip that uses electrodes to enhance and expand their memory
abilities. The chip is capable of storing neural signals, basically functioning as an
electronic memory, allowing rats to learn more and keep it in the devices."

Is Aging Itself a Curable Disease? This Scientist Says Yes—Up to a Point

"In an article for the magazine American Scientist, Gems notes that as the global
population ages, we are likely to see a growing percentage of humanity living
long enough to be afflicted with illnesses related to old age."

"Gems says it may indeed be possible to “treat” aging. He knows because he’s
personally involved with cutting edge research in the area."

I find this very interesting. I know it didn't say in the article that the chip would enhance abilities, but I wonder if future applications of this technology would be something along the lines of using a "Steve Vai" chip and then instantly being able to play guitar like Steve Vai while the chip was active. Certainly this would require not only knowledge memory, but muscle memory as well.

Yeah, imagine the possibilities:
