Airbus created a remote-controlled aircraft with flapping wingtips to see how much it could increase efficiency

Airbus' AlbatrossONE. Airbus Airbus created the AlbatrossONE, a small-scale remote-controlled aircraft with wingtips that can flap like a bird during turbulence to better handle the strong gusts of winds. These hinged, flapping wingtips help reduce drag, therefore saving fuel and consequently decreasing carbon dioxide emissions. Airbus has completed two flight tests of the AlbatrossONE, and the most recent test in July used wingtips that were 75% longer than the ones used during the in...

Mucosal vaccine efficacy against intrarectal SHIV is independent of anti-Env antibody response

It is widely believed that protection against acquisition of HIV or SIV infection requires anti-envelope (anti-Env) antibodies, and that cellular immunity may affect viral loads but not acquisition, except in special cases. Here we provide evidence to the contrary. Mucosal immunization may enhance HIV vaccine efficacy by eliciting protective responses at portals of exposure. Accordingly, we vaccinated macaques mucosally with HIV/SIV peptides, modified vaccinia Ankara–SIV (MVA-SIV), and HIV-gp120...

‘Star Trek: Discovery’ Review: A Longtime ‘Trek’ Fan Takes On (and Mostly Approves of) the New Series

Star Trek’s return to television was supposed to be grand.

'Star Trek Beyond': I've Been to the Future and It's Mind-blowing!

Our prospects for the world in the future are pretty awesome, if only it weren't for an alienated terrorist with an agenda for revenge. Sounds like a line from an op-ed piece in a leading newspaper? Well it isn't. It's the premise (at its most threadbare) for the upcoming Star Trek Beyond, the 13th cinematic installment made to date, and inspired by the TV series -- which this year enjoys its 50th year anniversary. Star Trek Beyond proves to be the perfect lucky thirteen. But now let me exp...
