Une voisine de Pluton bien plus petite quon ne pensait

first_imgUne voisine de Pluton bien plus petite qu’on ne pensaitL’une des planètes voisines de Pluton, Sedna, découverte en 2003, serait finalement bien plus petite que ne le croyait jusque là les astronomes.Lorsque les astronomes découvrirent Sedna, en 2003, il s’agissait de l’objet céleste le plus distant jamais observé dans le système solaire. Elle orbitait plus de deux fois plus loin du Soleil que Pluton elle-même, à 13 milliards de kilomètres. Ce n’est que peu après que les astronomes finirent par découvrir Eris, plus lointaine encore. Or, les estimations initiales basées sur la luminosité de Sedna laissaient entendre que la planète mesurait entre deux et trois fois la taille de Pluton. Cependant, de nouvelles études réalisés dans l’infrarouge avec des longueurs d’ondes spéciales ont donné un résultat tout à fait inattendu. À lire aussiBoisson, météorite et Facebook, les actus sciences que vous devez connaître ce 5 septembreEn réalité, Sedna ne ferait que 43% de la taille de Pluton avec 995 kilomètres de diamètre (soit moins que Charon, la plus grande des lunes de Pluton). Sedna, étant donné son éloignement, est particulièrement froide. Sa surface ne dépasse ainsi pas les -253 °C. Elle est même si glacée et si petite qu’il y a quelques années, le télescope spatial Spitzer de la NASA avait scruté l’espace à sa recherche en vain avec une lumière infrarouge. Mais les nouvelles observations réalisées par Herschel indiquent que Sedna réfléchit un tiers de la lumière solaire qui lui parvient, soit beaucoup plus que prévu. Or, pour renvoyer une lueur si faible, c’est nécessairement que la planète est très petite. “Nous nous attendions à quelque chose de plus sombre et de plus grand”, explique un des astronomes chargé de l’étude et cité par le National Geographic.Cette fois, ces résultats semblent donc être les bons. “Nous n’avions jamais eu de bonnes estimations auparavant”, indique Mike Brown, le découvreur de Sedna et astronome au California Institute of Technology. Toutefois, il ne s’agit pas de la première erreur de la sorte puisque Pluton elle aussi était initialement censée être beaucoup plus grande qu’elle ne l’est réellement. Il y a 50 ans, on la croyait encore plus grande que Mercure mais plus petite que Mars, on sait maintenant qu’elle mesure la moitié de Mercure.

The Legend of Zelda Might Be Nintendos Next Mobile Game

first_imgStay on target The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is one of the greatest video games Nintendo has ever made. And considering the track record of the company the revived the games industry in 1983, that’s really saying something. Plus, since the game is playable on the handheld/console hybrid the Nintendo Switch, this is a Zelda game you can take everywhere.Now it seems like Link’s next adventure, while not as grand in scope, will be even more mobile. According to The Wall Street Journal, The Legend of Zelda might be Nintendo’s next mobile game.Since announcing its smartphone gaming initiative in partnership with DeNA two years ago, Nintendo has slowly but consistently released a variety of games for phones and tablets. First there was the Mii-themed social app Miitomo in March 2016 followed by the auto-runner Super Mario Run that holiday and most recently the free-to-play strategy/dating game Fire Emblem Heroes this past February. As a reminder to readers/shareholders, Pokemon Go is a whole separate deal.You could totally fit a non-Switch phone/tablet in there.We know a mobile Animal Crossing is in the works but besides that Nintendo’s future mobile games remain a mystery. However, we can expect the company to leverage its widely recognized and popular franchises. That’s what Nintendo can do on mobile that other companies can’t, even if it doesn’t always lead to expected successes. And if they stick to a 2-3 games a year schedule, they won’t run out of mascots anytime soon. Look forward to Chibi-Robo Run in 2030. With that in mind, a Zelda mobile game seems like a no-brainer. We even predicted it.So what will a mobile Zelda be? No one knows for sure yet. While the series is known for epic adventures, it’s also no stranger to more casual spin-offs about dressing up, shooting crossbows, or earning cash as a confused fairy man. A retro, top-down Zelda could also provide a sprawling mobile adventure without being too technically taxing.If it were up to me, whatever the game is, I would have it connect to Breath of the Wild in some way. Maybe if you do well enough in the mobile game you earn some sweet new weapons to whack against Calamity Ganon. Please, just don’t make it free-to-play.Want to learn more?

First GrapheneInfused Sneakers to Hit Ground Running in 2018

first_img There are endless reasons running outdoors in the winter is the worst.To name just one: wet, frosty, often icy roads and paths.Innovative new graphene-infused sneaker soles, however, could eliminate the fear of falling—among other benefits.AdChoices广告A sheet of carbon atoms arranged in a hexagonal lattice, graphene is the basic structural element of other forms of carbon, including graphite and charcoal. The much-talked-about allotrope has gained attention among battery manufacturers, excited about its top-notch physical and chemical stability.But it’s also caught the eye of British sportswear brand inov-8, which has partnered with the University of Manchester to incorporate graphene into running and fitness shoes.inov-8 teamed up with University of Manchester to become the first-ever company to incorporate graphene into running and fitness shoes (via inov-8)Based on lab tests, the high-tech rubber outsoles—expected to hit shelves in 2018—are stronger, stretchier, and more resistant than traditional sneakers.“Off-road runners and fitness athletes live at the sporting extreme and need the stickiest outsole grip possible to optimize their performance,” inov-8 product and marketing director Michael Price said in a statement. “Be that when running on wet trails or working out in sweaty gyms.”Uh … Which health clubs are you frequenting, Mike?“For too long, they have had to compromise this need for grip with the knowledge that such rubber wears down quickly,” he continued. “Now, utilizing the groundbreaking properties of graphene, there is no compromise.”The new rubber, developed with the National Graphene Institute at the University of Manchester, promises to “smash the limits of grip,” Price said.First mined in the Lake District of Northern England more than 450 years ago, the material was later re-discovered by scientists at the University of Manchester. The school has since experimented with graphene-enhanced sports cars, medical devices, and aeroplanes.“Despite being the thinnest material in the world, graphene is also the strongest, and is 200 times stronger than steel,” according to University researcher Aravind Vijayaraghavan. “It’s also extraordinarily flexible, and can be bent, twisted, folded, and stretched without incurring any damage.“This is a revolutionary consumer product that will have a huge impact on the sports footwear market,” he added.But it won’t come cheap: inov-8’s current lineup costs $110 to $150. Add wonder material graphene, and the upcoming G-Series range will likely get a pretty big price hike.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

WHOA Apartment Complex 7 Retail Stores Bank Proposed At Woburn St Lowell

first_imgWILMINGTON, MA — One of Wilmington’s busiest intersections may soon be getting a lot busier.The Wilmington Planning Board is currently reviewing a proposal from Jacquelyn Welch, of Mass Equity Investors, to build a residential and commercial development at 203 Lowell Street, at the corner of Woburn Street and Lowell Street, in between Textron and Lucci’s Plaza.The 3-story residential development is a 57-unit apartment complex, located at the back of the property. The facility would have 120 dedicated parking spots, including a parking garage underneath the building.The commercial development, which is L-shaped right on the corner of Woburn and Lowell, consists of 7 retail stores on the first floor, with office space on the second and third floors.A standalone bank, with a drive-thru, will also be built at the front of the site, on the Lowell Street side, near the Textron property.The site will have two entrances — one from Lowell Street and one from Woburn Street. The Lowell Street entrance would simply realign the existing entrance to the DEP Office, which is located behind the site. The Woburn Street entrance is likely to be parallel, or nearly parallel, to the Lucci’s entrance.The project will hook into the new sewer on Lowell Street.“This site was previously approved for a dog pet care facility with two restaurants [including an old-fashioned diner],” noted Doug Lees, the surveyor and engineer for the project. “That project did not go forward. We were ready to put shovels in the ground and something happened and things felt apart. We’re now back with a new perspective and applicant.”At its most recent meeting, the Planning Board, who are being asked for site plan review, stormwater permitting and a multi-family special permit, agreed to waive the reading the comments submitted by town departments until the applicant makes further submittals. The Board’s Chair Michael Sorrentino did, however, allude to a long list of required changes and revisions that needed to be made. Several board members requested more detailed renderings. Members voted to continue the public hearing to its next meeting on Tuesday, December 4.Meanwhile, the plans are on file with the Planning and Conservation Department at Town Hall and can be viewed Monday through Friday, 8:30am to 4:30pm.Selectman Ed Loud, the only member of the public in the audience besides the applicants, spoke out against certain aspects of the project.“This intersection is already one of the worst in town. I think it’s has a ‘F’ rating. Will a traffic study be done?,” asked Loud.Sorrentino was unsure if the board would require a traffic study. Lees said that town officials had requested one.Loud was also not happy that one of the 57 rentals would be affordable units.“This developer [Michael Welch] has told us we have an affordable housing crisis,” said Loud. “It’s now his turn to help fix that crisis, or at least start the process.”Welch’s daughter was the developer behind the proposal to rezone Sciarrappa Farm at this year’s Annual Town Meeting, in order to build 250 1 & 2-bedroom units on the site. 40 of them would have been classified as affordable. Michael Welch was harshly critical of the Board of Selectmen in the run up to the Town Meeting for not embracing the plan, claiming they weren’t doing enough to bring affordable units to town.“It’s very hard to go back to the next developer and ask them to add affordability when we’re not asking these guys to do it,” continued Loud, who noted these 57 units were not even on the town’s radar and will put the town even further in the hole when trying to meet its 10% affordable housing threshold after the 2020 census. If the town’s affordable housing stock falls below 10% of its overall stock, Wilmington will become susceptible to 40B housing projects, which do not need to follow local zoning regulations and are typically higher, bigger, and denser than what’s normally permitted.“We’re going to wind up in 40B developers’ heaven,” cautioned Loud.Like Wilmington Apple on Facebook.

Litigation Blamed For Port MacKenzie Rail Spur Delays

first_imgI’m Ellen Lockyer The Ninth Circuit has since given the go-ahead for the project. Federal Surface Transportation Board regulations regarding the relocation of trails in the area added an additional one million dollars to costs, and a five percent Borough finance administration charge also upped the total  of building the railroad spur.The additional costs will add about three and a half million dollars to the Borough’s request for a legislative appropriation of $116 million  for next year to complete work on the spur. Perkins told the body that nearly $120 million is needed to finish the project by late 2017. Construction of the railroad link between the Matanuska-Susitna Borough city of Houston and Port MacKenzie is over budget and way behind schedule. Borough officials blame litigation for the delays.Download AudioAt Tuesday night’s Mat Su Borough Assembly meeting, Joe Perkins, the Borough’s executive for the rail extension project, updated earlier financial data on the cost overruns beyond the initial $272 million  pricetag.“When you add all this up, it totals about $31 million. So if you take $ 272 .5 and add $31 (million) to it,  you get a total project cost now of  $303. 5. (million)” The project linking Port MacKenzie with the AK Railroad main line near Houston started in 2008, and Perkins said the way it has been funded, by legislative appropriations over the years, has not helped keep costs down. “We had intended to have the train running by now, had we received sufficient funding to do that. So, we have had some impacts from delays in funding. Our construction management people are having to stay a considerable number of years past what we have anticipated, same thing with our engineering people. So, again, the way this thing has been funded with eight different appropriations and some more to come, has certainly increased our costs.” He told the Assembly that work on some of the six construction segments of the railroad spur are done or near completion. Segment 1 at Port MacKenzie, segment 3 in the middle and segment 6 near Houston are finished. Segment 4 should be done next year, but segment 5, which crosses privately owned land, is being put off until negotiations for a Right of Way are complete. The money appropriated for that segment will be put into producing “ballast” or rock bed material for the entire rail spur. Possibly a major cause of the cost overruns, according to Perkins, are delays caused by litigation against the spur’s construction by environmental organizations Cook Inletkeeper and Sierra Club. The lawsuits caused the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals to issue a stop work order on the spur, which added to the contractor and engineer costs. “The number on the ongoing construction, which we can prove, is $5  million. The legal costs were somewhere around $1.5 million. We were represented by DC attorneys, and they’re expensive. “last_img read more

Picoscale precision though ultrathin film piezoelectricity

first_imgFig. 1. Schematic illustration of local characterization of in-plane piezoelectricity and vertical piezoelectricity. In-plane piezoelectricity (piezo) (d11, d22) of ultrathin materials is the planar electromechanical couple behavior, where the applied stress and produced piezoelectric potential are located at the in-plane of exposed lattice plane. Vertical piezoelectricity (d33) focus on electromechanical interaction occurred in the vertical axis, which is perpendicular to the surface of materials. The high-precision deformation actuator can be implemented using accurate positioning of the materials surface by vertical inverse piezoelectricity. Credit: X. Wang, X. He, H. Zhu, L. Sun, W. Fu, X.

Journal information: Science Advances Lastly – and reminiscent of the challenge in demonstrating d33 vertical piezoelectricity at the atomic scale using CdS thin films – the researchers had to determine the CdS film vertical piezoelectric coefficient with in situ scanning Kelvin force microscopy (SKFM) and single and dual AC resonance tracking piezoelectric force microscopy (DART-PFM). “The quality of ultrathin piezoelectric CdS is the key to obtaining a reliable vertical piezoelectric coefficient.” Liu notes. “Some characterization tools like Raman and photoluminescence spectroscopies can help us to identify the CdS sample and confirm its high quality. Also, because of the geometrical vibrations of the CdS samples, the atomic force microscopy characterization should be carefully carried out in order to make sure our conclusions are solid.” This required the researchers to examine many SKFM and DART-PFM samples using to reach a solid conclusion about vertical piezoelectric behavior in CdS ultrathin films. Prof. Zheng Liu discussed the paper that he, Dr. Ting Zhang and their colleagues published in Science Advances, describing a series of challenges they faced starting with using chemical vapor deposition to synthesize 2~3 nm cadmium sulfide (CdS) thin films. “The vertical piezoelectricity, or d33, is the key parameter in piezoelectric materials for the fabrication of actuators used to position objects with extreme accuracy – down to the atomic scale in a broad range of cutting-edge equipment such as atomic force microscopy and scanning tunneling microscopy,” Liu tells Phys.org. “Moreover, high-performance ultrathin piezoelectric materials are crucial for the constructing ultra-high resolution and flexible electromechanically coupled devices.”Prior to this study, Liu points out, only a few studies reported the synthesis of atomic thin piezoelectric materials by a wet chemical method, examples of which include CdS and cadmium selenide (CdSe) nanoplatelets. “It’s a significant challenge to produce high-quality and atom-thin piezoelectric materials,” he adds. “In this research, the main challenge in synthesizing ultrathin piezoelectric CdS films via chemical vapor deposition” (or CVD) “lays in the selection of precursors and how to optimize the reaction parameters, such as growing temperature and time.”The scientists were then faced with demonstrating d33 vertical piezoelectricity at the atomic scale using ultrathin cadmium sulfide thin films. “When the thickness of materials reaches the nanoscale level,” Liu explains, “it’s very difficult to verify the piezoelectric effect and determine its values because of the coupling effect from the substrate – and surface geometries may affect the measurements at atomic limits as well.” For example, he illustrates, sample surface roughness reaches tens of picometers, which is the same scale with the vertical electromechanical response for materials.

Liu, Subatomic deformation driven by vertical piezoelectricity from CdS ultrathin films. Sci. Adv. 2, e1600209 (2016). Copyright © 2016 The Authors, some rights reserved; exclusive licensee American Association for the Advancement of Science. Distributed under a Creative Commons Attribution NonCommercial License 4.0 (CC BY-NC). DOI:10.1126/sciadv.1600209. The researchers concluded that contact piezoresponse force microscopy (PFM) – which uses a conductive tip to apply a highly localized electric field that allows imaging and manipulation of piezoelectric ferroelectric materials – could significantly change the surface potential of a CdS ultrathin film by applying stress to its surface. “Typically, applying mechanical stress to a piezoelectric material will generate electric charge that accumulates at the surface of the material, which is how we identify the piezoelectric materials,” Liu tells Phys.org. “We therefore believe that this results from piezoelectric polarizations giving rise to a large piezoelectric potential, in turn leading to a remarkable spatial separation of electrons and holes.” In this case, electrons generated by the piezoelectric effect will be trapped into the silicon dioxide (SiO2) dielectric layers, while the holes will be trapped inside the crystal boundary of the CdS films. The scientists state that their work may pave a way to the synthesis of ultrathin lattice scale nanomaterials using CVD method, which is a low-cost method for producing high quality samples. In addition, Liu notes, the materials provided by their study will enable the high-integrated and multi-functional devices by simply coating or transferring the film to the device. “For actuator applications, our work will promote next generation actuators with extreme resolution for their potential use in characterization tools such as ultra-high resolution microscopy; for atom manipulation and fabrication; or potentially for the detection of ultra-low deformation in, for example, cold atom studies, verification of the gravitational inverse square law at short range, and even the detection of gravitational waves.”Moving forward, Liu says, the scientists will determine the relationship between the vertical piezoelectric coefficient d33 and the thickness of CdS at atomic scales. “Well also synthesize other piezoelectric, ferroelectric and layered piezoelectric/ferroelectric ultrathin materials, and explore their electromechanical properties.” Based on this material and micro/nano-manufacture technology, the researchers hope to design and fabricate next-generation actuators for accurate positioning of minute objects, such as nanoparticles at subatomic scales, using their novel materials.In addition, the large vertical piezoelectric coefficient d33 makes this material promising to construction of ultrathin and sensitive pressure sensors for detecting miniscule forces. If the low detection limit of sensor reaches to nanoscale levels, the device could monitor single biological cell migration. “Our study will inspire material scientists to hunt for other non-trivial ultrathin or layered piezoelectric or ferroelectric materials,” Liu tells Phys.org. “Engineers can employ our CdS ultrathin films to design and fabricate novel microelectromechanical systems,” or MEMS, “and nanoelectromechanical systems,” or NEMS, “with high-integration and multi-functionalities, and may benefit when developing cutting-edge scientific instruments. Furthermore,” he concludes, “novel and flexible consumer electronic devices can be developed based on our study.” Arranging polymer nanotubes in a vertical array enhances piezoelectric properties for acoustic sensors Piezoelectricity (aka the piezoelectric effect) occurs within certain materials – crystals (notably quartz), some ceramics, bone, DNA, and a number of proteins – when the application of mechanical stress or vibration generates electric charge or alternating current (AC) voltage, respectively. (Conversely, piezoelectric materials can vibrate when AC voltage is applied to them.) The piezoelectric effect has a significant range of uses, including sound production and detection, generation of high voltages and electronic frequencies, atomic resolution imaging technologies (e.g., scanning tunneling and atomic force microscopy), and actuators for highly accurate positioning of nanoscale objects – the last being crucial for fundamental research and industrial applications. That being said, subatomic scale positioning still presents a number of challenge. Recently, however, researchers at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Suzhou, and Duke University, Durham demonstrated vertical piezoelectricity at the atomic scale (three to five space lattices) using ultrathin cadmium sulfide (CdS) films. The researchers determined a vertical piezoelectric coefficient (d33) three times that of bulk CdS using in situ scanning Kelvin force microscopy and single and dual ac resonance tracking piezoelectric force microscopy, leading them to conclude that their findings have a number of critical roles in the design of next-generation sensors and microelectromechanical devices. More information: X. Wang et al, Subatomic deformation driven by vertical piezoelectricity from CdS ultrathin films, Science Advances 01 Jul 2016, Vol. 2, no. 7, e1600209, doi:10.1126/sciadv.1600209 Liu comments that addressing these challenges required innovative techniques. “For the first time, we successfully synthesized high-quality atomic thin CdS films using CVD, and we demonstrated vertical piezoelectricity of these films at the atomic scale of 3~5 space lattices” (a space, or crystal, lattice being a periodically repeating two- or three-dimensional array of points or particles) “and observed the vertical piezoelectric domains. More importantly,” Liu continues, “our work shows an enhanced vertical piezoelectricity in CdS ultrathin films at a level three times larger than the CdS bulk counterpart, as well as higher than most of traditional piezoelectric materials.” These results imply non-trivial piezoelectric behavior at atomic limits for a certain class of materials – which has not yet been well explored – and inspires the search for two-dimensional free-standing layered piezoelectric materials that are only one atom thick. Liu points out that their findings shed light on the design of next-generation sensors, actuators and microelectromechanical devices, in that piezoelectric materials are the most important component for such devices. Specifically, he says that their findings provide the opportunity for next-generation sensors and microelectromechanical devices in three ways:Flexibility: Ultrathin piezoelectric material materials are naturally like two-dimensional materials in being flexible, allowing them to be conformably used for more complicated electromechanical devices. Miniaturization: Ultrathin piezoelectric material materials are a perfect candidate for the fabrication of reduced size, highly integrated devices, especially for mobile phone and wearable devices. Inspiration: The study’s results will inspire the development of other ultrathin piezoelectric materials, especially two-dimensional piezoelectric materials. Liu illustrates these points by listing potential examples of such devices – for example, atomically thin piezoelectric devices – and their applications. “For instance, using CdS ultrathin films, the most accurate probe or stage ever fabricated may be achievable, allowing researchers and engineers to manipulate atoms or position tips in atomic force, scanning electron and transmission electron microscopy. In other words, CdS ultrathin films will extend our capability to see and manipulate our world in an extreme way.” Of more importance, he adds, such ultrathin piezoelectric devices can be integrated into equipment like autocollimators and Michelson interferometers used in, for example, cold atom studies, the verification of the gravitational inverse square law at short range, and even the detection of gravitational waves.The study also reports the in situ measurement of the ultrathin CdS film vertical piezoelectric coefficient d33, determining the film coefficient to be approximately three times larger than that of bulk CdS. “This value is pretty big for atomically thin materials,” Liu explains. “It means that we can get a large voltage change when small pressure or deformation is applied. This makes the material a great candidate constructing sensitive and ultrathin mechanical sensors.” © 2016 Phys.org Fig. 3. Spectroscopic characterization of CdS thin film.

You are emotional and sensitive and you are so patient when you shop with me!” Me: “mom, those are all things that make me super gay!”’Lastly, Korn herself, was quick to reassure her followers that she’d been able to cope just fine without a man to help with this particular task.‘For the record everyone I have been opening my own jars ~ if you know what I mean ~ just fine for 11 years.’GSN has contacted Korn for comment.See alsoFormer Disney star Alyson Stoner comes out as queer A gay woman’s tweet about a college dating experience has gone viral.

Top Stories Seals-Jones, who had seen time on special teams, was pressed into duty after Ifeanyi Momah suffered a season-ending leg injury in a Thursday night loss to Seattle.“With his body control and and his ball skills — although he did have one drop — to me, it encourages you to think about moving forward with a guy that we really haven’t had in this offense in a long time, a mismatch tight end.” – / 51 LISTEN: Steve Keim, Cardinals General Manager His signing with the Cardinals in late April didn’t make many headlines either.But it’s better to make headlines in November, isn’t it?Seals-Jones had another stellar game for the Cardinals Sunday in a win over Jacksonville as the rookie caught four passes for 72 yards and a touchdown — his third in two weeks.The cousin of Pro Football Hall of Famer Eric Dickerson has impressed the man who signed him, general manager Steve Keim.“You wonder at times when a guy is an undrafted free agent, if it’s a fluke that he comes in in his first game and has some success like he did,” Keim told Doug & Wolf Monday morning on 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station. “But then all of a sudden, he capitalizes and does the same type of thing.“The one thing you see on tape, you see the mismatches he creates, you see the foot speed, the suddenness, the explosiveness in and out of his routes, the fact that he can play in line, he can line up in the slot and he can move all over the field and create mismatches is really fun to watch.”Despite playing only two games on offense, Seals-Jones is tied for second on the Cardinals’ roster with three touchdown receptions. He’s averaged 18 yards per catch and has given Arizona a tight end dynamic that they haven’t had in a really long time — a down-the-field threat that stresses defenses. Heading into the 2017 NFL Draft, the name Ricky Seals-Jones didn’t garner much attention.After being a 5-star recruit that landed at Texas A&M, Seals-Jones was sort of an afterthought following his redshirt junior season in College Station. Was he receiver? Was he a tight end? Did he drop too many passes in college? Was his 40-time too slow?In all, 253 players were drafted by NFL teams in April. Seals-Jones wasn’t one of them.
