Are Elon Musk's ‘megaconstellations’ a blight on the night sky?

Miniature satellites open up a world of technological possibility. But experts say they degrade the astronomical landscapeThe natural serenity of the night sky is a touchstone for all of us. Everyone alive today looks at the same stars no matter where they are located on the planet. But the connection is more profound because, next to our brief lives, the stars are immortal. Shakespeare saw the same stars in the same patterns that we do. So did Galileo, Columbus, Joan of Arc, Cleopatra and the f...

How very tiny technologies are helping tackle the global pandemic

The world-altering coronavirus behind the COVID-19 pandemic is thought to be just 60 nanometres to 120 nanometres in size. This is so mind-bogglingly small that you could fit more than 400 of these virus particles into the width of a single hair on your head. In fact, coronaviruses are so small that we can’t see them with normal microscopes and require much fancier electron microscopes to study them. How can we battle a foe so minuscule that we cannot see it? One solution is to fight tiny with t...

Some states have 'unintentionally' pursued a herd-immunity strategy to control the coronavirus, experts say — and it's kind of working

A server at the Hungry Tarpon Restaurant in Islamorada, Florida, gives an entree to a couple on June 1, 2020. Andy Newman/Florida Keys News Bureau/Handout via REUTERS A population can achieve herd immunity after enough people become immune to a virus, either through vaccination or infection. Arizona, Florida, and Texas — which had huge coronavirus outbreaks following early reopenings — may have reached low levels of herd immunity that have helped slow the virus's spread in the last month. ...

We're ignoring one of the most obvious ways to avoid spreading the coronavirus: stop talking so much

Teachers wearing masks attend a meeting at Jean-Jaures elementary school in Cenon near Bordeaux, France on May 11, 2020 amid preparations to re-open primary schools. Mehdi Fedouach/AFP via Getty Images Talking loudly may spread the virus to others better than being quiet. It's possible that this is part of the reason why English speakers have had higher infection rates than the Japanese.  But that doesn't mean we should all go silent.  Talking to others is one of the most important things ...

Rocket startup Astra’s first orbital launch attempt ends early due to first-stage burn failure

Alameda-based rocket launch startup Astra finally got the chance to launch its first orbital test mission from its Alaska-based facility on Saturday, after the attempt had been delayed multiple times due to weather and other issues. The 8:19 PM PT lift-off of Astra’s ‘Rocket 3.1’ test vehicle went well – but the flight ended relatively shortly after that, during the first-stage engine burn and long before reaching orbit. Astra wasn’t expecting to actually reach orbit on this particular flight...
