Researchers have developed technology that may one day be the cure for nearly any viral infection. Researchers at MIT's Lincoln Laboratory designed a drug that can identify cells that have been infected by any type of virus, which then kills those cells to terminate the infection. The team found that their drug was effective against all 15 viruses they tested it on, including viruses that cause the common cold, H1N1 influenza, a stomach virus, a polio virus and several other types of...

MIT researchers have developed a new algorithm that could prevent the midair collisions of up to 10 to 12 small aircraft every year. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) mandated that by 2020, all commercial aircraft must be equipped with a new tracking system that broadcasts GPS data, providing more accurate location information than ground-based radar. The FAA has asked MIT researchers to lead the investigation of the system's limits and capacities in anticipation of the deadline....
