U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) plans to use to protect their territorial waters unmanned submarine hunters. These fully robotic vehicles will Read more [...]
Enthusiasts of Defense Distributed presented new work on the development of weapons with the help of three-dimensional printer.
This time with the help of 3D-printer prints a 30-round magazine for the 5.56 mm AR-16 rifles. Plastic transparent shop first drawn in the program CAD, and then brought to the printer Objet Connex260. The only factory piece in print shop - this spring.
Like other parts of the weapon, the store, in a sense a victim of imperfect three-dimensional printing technology weapons. First of all, this is due to insufficient strength of materials - plastic can not withstand the Read more [...]
British Antarctic Survey on Wednesday presented a draft of the research base, which can be moved on the ice, like AT-AT walkers from the TV series "Star Wars." The station is called Halley VI will be located on the Brunt Ice Shelf, and is the sixth of a similar institution in this region of the shelf, according to the TV channel "Fox News." Most previous stations simply can not withstand the rigors of the Arctic snow, and a fifth had to quit out of fear for the lives of scientists in the case of fracture of the ice cover.

French scientists have learned to reflect the seismic waves from the buildings, using the principle of creating invisibility cloaks. Results of the first field test of such a system are described in the preprint, laid out in an archive at Cornell University. Summary results of the blog Technology Review.The system, developed by scientists, was built and tested in the south of France. It consists of a matrix of wells, leaving a depth of 200 meters. On one side of the matrix in the deep rocks placed vibroproba, radiated seismic (they - acoustic) waves with a frequency of 50 hertz. On the other Read more [...]

Soon the ships can get rid of the bacteria in the same way as horses get rid of the flies. Created a special material, which is reduced and stretched, literally shaking the bacteria from the surface. The use of this technology are very large, as it helps to get rid of even large colonies of various microorganisms.Initially, scientists at Duke University have developed a material capable to solve the problem of accumulation of bacteria on the surface of the vessel. Over time, bacteria create a vessel to trim biosliz, which increases the resistance to movement, reduces the energy efficiency of Read more [...]

However, in this respect, sharks champions: few people still at sea skin to such an extent similar to sandpaper.The fact is, the skin is covered with lots of tiny sharks swirled "ribs" that reduce the vortices formed with increasing velocity and turbulence when driving. Something similar happens with the Jets: at a certain speed vortices formed on the wing and fuselage, sharply increase the resistance and lead to an increase in fuel consumption.Phenomenon surprisingly Read more [...]
