Engineers Increase Solar Power Plant Performance by 50%

The concentration of sunlight on tiny spots on the heat-generating membrane exploits an inherent and previously unrecognized non-linear relationship between photothermal heating and vapor pressure. Picture credits: Pratiksha Dongare / Rice University Rice University's solar-powered approach to purifying salt water with sunlight and nanoparticles is even more efficient than the inventors initially believed. Researchers at Rice's Nanophotonics Laboratory (LANP) this …

Engineers go into details that rammed Beresheet into the moon

On Friday, engineers released preliminary data on what they thought had gone wrong in the last moments of Beresheet, one day after the Israeli spacecraft crashed on the moon. Engineers believe that a technical fault – probably in the component that measures the spacecraft's height in relation to the surface – triggers a chain reaction of events that brought the …

NASA, MIT engineers reintroduce aircraft wings, revealing a futuristic new design

An innovative team of NASA engineers joined forces with students from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) to improve the traditional aircraft wing. The researchers introduced a concept for a redesigned wing on Monday. I believe that ultimately the cost of future aircraft would be lowered and performance increased. Their approach was described in detail in an article published in …

MIT engineers use 3D printing to build origami-inspired object grippers

Engineers at MIT's Computer and Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) have used 3D printing to build a robotic device suitable for a variety of objects. The results of the research were published in an article entitled A Vacuum Origami Softgripper "Magic Ball". Robert Wood, co-author of the newspaper and professor at the Wyss Institute for Biological Inspired Engineering, said: …
