A team of researchers at Pennsylvania State University, led by Amanda D. Hanford, has developed a “cloaking device” that works underwater. The new metamaterial shield is able to intercept and bend underwater sound waves, like sonar, around it without scattering them – making it appear as if the cloak and anything within it isn’t there at all.
Google has just announced its flagship phones for 2018 – the Pixel 3 and 3 XL – which means all your best options for the year are now on the table. If you’re considering one of the latest Pixels, the main question you’re probably asking yourself is how well they stack up against the other key players – specifically, Apple’s new iPhones. To help you decide, New Atlas compares the specs and features of the Google Pixel 3 and 3 XL to the iPhone XR, XS and XS Max.
For decades we’ve been bombarded by leftist environmentalists and global warming alarmists that renewable energy is the only way to go – the only way to save our planet from burning up.
States like Hawaii and California have even enacted mandates which dictate, by a certain year, that all electricity in these states must be derived from clean, non-carbon emitting “renewable” sources like solar and wind.
So obsessed has the left become with evil carbon, which happens to be the essential building block of all life, that they are overlooking a myriad of problems with their renewable cure all – especially when it comes to wind power.
Adding to wind energy’s rash of problems is the latest study done by researchers at Harvard which shows that wind energy actually causes global warming. Yes, you read that right. Wind power causes global warming. Isn’t that rich.
Just a few weeks ago Samsung unveiled the Galaxy A7, kitted out with four cameras. Not to be outdone, LG has now upped the stakes with a new premium phone that’s almost more camera than phone. The LG V40 ThinQ sports no less than five lenses – two in the front and three in the back – bringing with it a bevy of new photography tricks and good internal specs to boot. Oh, and the company has a new watch too.
The U.S. Army has ordered a prototype of a weapon designed in a garage in Colorado Springs. The weapon is electrically fired, has four barrels and can fire all four rounds at once in a single devastating salvo.
The US Air Force has selected the Boeing MH-139 helicopter to replace its venerable fleet of UH-1N “Huey” multirole choppers that are used to protect America’s land-based nuclear ICBMs in the US Midwest. The contract, worth US$2.4 billion, is for 84 aircraft along with support services and training systems.
