An international researchers team was recently had a breakthrough when they identified a brown dwarf, a star not big enough for nuclear fusion, with the most possible purity and highest mass known to human brain. The object has been named as SDSS J0104+1535 and is now a member of halo, the most external reaches of our galaxy that is constituted by the oldest stars. Brown dwarfs are known for being an intermediate between fully-fledged stars and planets. The mass is also very less for hydrogen nuclear fusion with helium, but these are little more massive as compared with planets.
A team of researchers working at MIT recently developed a new technology to keep multi-robot systems safe from hostile takeovers. This technique keeps the systems safe from a security threat called Sybil attack under which robots gets spoofed for influencing the authentic robots coordination from the network. There are a number of multi-robot systems coordinate through algorithms and make use of local observations to make a few new recommendations for the frameworks. When recommendations from all robots from the network are combined together, a single decision can be made.
Mostly platinum is used as a catalyst in the process of electrolysers that store electric energy in form of chemical compounds. It is also known for playing a crucial role in formation of fuel cells, multiple chemical processes, and catalytic converters. A team of researchers from the Aalto University led by Kari Laasonen and Tanja Kallio developed a new manufacturing procedure for electrocatalysts that consume just 1/100th amount of platinum used in production of commercial products.
Platinum is known for being a very costly material and is thus one of the biggest obstacles in renewable energy development. The process accomplished with use of new material is very much similar with that to commercial products. Platinum happens to be a very expensive metal that this smaller its requirement more cost-effective is the process of manufacturing and production.
