The colors of hydrogen

2021-07-25T21:07:46+02:0015 July 2021|Categories: Technology|Tags: , , , , |

It is the lightest element in the periodic table and the most widespread in the universe, from the warm and beating heart of the stars to the cold ice crystals of these winter days. In the gaseous and molecular state it is odorless and colorless, when it is "burned" in the presence of oxygen it produces water. Hydrogen, its production and its possible uses enter every day more in the discussions of the media and public opinion for the fight against global warming and for the role that hydrogen can have as a clean energy vector since its combustion does not produce greenhouse gases. Avrete forse notato che all'idrogeno [...]

Rice production with CRISP-Cas9

2021-07-14T13:13:05+02:0021 March 2020|Categories: Medicine and Research, Technology|Tags: , |

CRISPR-Cas9 is a gene editing technique capable of modifying the genome or the complex of genes of a cell. It works like a molecular scissor that can cut and stitch DNA very precisely, eliminating harmful sequences or replacing them and correcting the mutations present. To date, this technique has been used in various fields ranging from biology to agriculture and indeed, a group of scientists used the CRISPR system to be able to increase rice production in some areas of Africa, subject to adverse weather conditions. The study carried out by some researchers of the University of Milan together with the University of [...]

5G explained by those who work there

2021-07-14T13:19:24+02:0010 July 2019|Categories: Technology|Tags: , , , |

Lately we have been talking about 5G, con un interesse sempre crescente da parte dei cittadini di conoscere la natura, le opportunità e i rischi di questa nuova generazione delle telecomunicazioni. Per raccogliere queste informazioni siamo “andati direttamente alla fonte” intervistando chi sta studiando e lavorando in questo campo. Abbiamo quindi intervistato, col nostro redattore Francesco Marino, il Prof. Vittorio degli Esposti (autore di oltre 120 articoli scientifici peer-reviewed nei settori dell'Elettromagnetismo Applicato, Propagazione Radio e Sistemi Wireless) e la Ricercatrice Marina Barbiroli (titolare del corso di “Compatibilità elettromagnetica” e specializzata in modelli di previsione di campo elettromagnetico, criteri di pianificazione [...]

With virtual reality in the heads of robots

2021-03-14T13:00:02+01:0024 October 2017|Categories: Technology|Tags: , , , , |

How close we are to the future represented in the film "The world of replicants" (in which humanity, comfortably sitting on the sofa at home, it lives, interacts and works by means of androids with completely human features)? The latest innovations in the field of robotics seem to show that it is very close. A research group from MIT recently published a work in which a new system for remote control of a robot is presented. The strength of the proposed approach lies in the use of low-cost technologies: a virtual reality viewer already on the market (l’Oculus Rift), motion sensors used for [...]
