Science China Press Chinese and American scientists collaborating in the study of an active seismic fault that produced one of China's most deadly earthquakes say their deployment of an airborne LiDAR system, which uses pulses of laser light to calculate distances and chart terrain features, has helped them produce the most precise topographical measurements ever of the fault zone. "Light detection and ranging (LiDAR) presents a new approach to build detailed topographic maps...

Researchers Create A New Twist On 3-D Imaging Technology
2014-05-30 03:42:40

The Optical Society A new twist on 3-D imaging technology could one day enable your self-driving car to spot a child in the street half a block away, let you answer your Smartphone from across the room with a wave of your hand, or play "virtual tennis" on your driveway. The new system, developed by researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, can remotely sense objects across distances as long as 30 feet, 10 times farther than what could be done with comparable current...

Sasha Congiu, NASA Langley Research Center In a test on Wednesday, May 28, 2014, NASA demonstrated that it can land an unmanned spacecraft on a rugged planetary surface in the pitch dark. The free-flight test was the first of its kind for NASA's Autonomous Landing Hazard Avoidance Technology, or ALHAT. [ Watch the Video: Morpheus Completes Nighttime Flight Test ] During testing, Morpheus -- an unmanned spacecraft capable of carrying 1,100 pounds (499 kg) of cargo -- powered its...

Word of the Day
toccata
  • In music, a work for a keyboard-instrument, like the pianoforte or organ, originally intended to utilize and display varieties of touch: but the term has been extended so as to include many irregular works, similar to the prelude, the fantasia, and the improvisation.
This word is Italian in origin, coming from the feminine past participle of 'toccare,' to touch.
