Huawei will reportedly sue the US government this week
Huawei will reportedly sue the US government this week for banning its telecom products from federal agencies, according to the NY Times. The company is trying to defend itself from US charges that it's a security threat, and the lawsuit could be a move to force the US government to reveal more about what it knows. Recently, Huawei and its CEO Ren Zhengfei have gone on the offensive, citing Edward Snowden and saying, "there's no way the US can crush us...

Alteran los ojos de unos ratones para que puedan ver la luz infrarroja
Los mamíferos no pueden ver la luz infrarroja, esas ondas electromagnéticas cuya longitud de onda está comprendida entre 700 nm y 1 mm. Sea un humano o un ratón, la luz más allá de los 700 nm no es capaz de excitar las moléculas de los fotoreceptores de la retina...

Open MongoDB Databases Expose Chinese Surveillance Data
18 MongoDB databases with information generated by accounts on several online social services in China have been sitting on the web ready for plucking by anyone knowing where to look. It appears that they are part of a country-wide surveillance program that collects profile-related data (names, ID numbers, and photos) along with GPS locations, network info, public and private conversations, and file exchanges...

First Evidence of Global Groundwater System Found on Mars

First Evidence of Global Groundwater System Found on Mars
Twenty years ago, the question of whether Mars ever had large reserves of liquid water was still open to debate. Today, the discussion has shifted to an evaluation of the nature and size of those reserves, where they existed, and what this implies for any effort to find life (or the remains of it) on the Red Planet. Scientists with the European Space Agency have released the results of Mars Express’ observation of some 24 deep, enclosed craters in the northern hemisphere of Mars...

Complex Life Might Require a Very Narrow Habitable Zone [ I don't think so ]
Since the Kepler Space Telescope was launched into space, the number of known planets beyond our Solar System (exoplanets) has grown exponentially. At present, 3,917 planets have been confirmed in 2,918 star systems, while 3,368 await confirmation. Of these, about 50 orbit within their star’s circumstellar habitable zone (aka. “Goldilocks Zone”) , the distance at which liquid water can exist on a planets’ surface...

Light pulses provide a new route to enhance superconductivity

Light pulses provide a new route to enhance superconductivity
Under normal electron band theory, Mott insulators ought to conduct electricity, but they do not due to interactions among their electrons. But now, scientists from the RIKEN Cluster for Pioneering Research have shown that pulses of light could be used to turn these materials beyond simple conductors to superconductors—materials that conduct electricity without energy loss. This process would happen through an unconventional type of superconductivity known as "eta pairing."...

Neutrinos Entangled in the Cosmic Web May Change the Structure of the Universe
Like flies trapped in a silken spider web, ghostly particles known as neutrinos are entangled in a cosmic web of galaxies. They have almost no mass. They pass like subatomic apparitions through other matter, barely interacting with it. And yet, these mysterious particles have fundamentally altered the course of the universe, new research reveals...
