Northvolt Produces First Fully Recycled Battery Cell – Looks Towards Establishing 125,000 Ton/Year Giga Recycling Plant

November 12, 2021 | Stockholm, Sweden – Northvolt today announced that its recycling program, Revolt, has produced its first lithium-ion battery cell featuring a nickel-manganese-cobalt (NMC) cathode produced with metals recovered through the recycling of battery waste…


Do-It-Yourself Artificial Pancreas Given Approval by Team of Experts

The paper was co-led by King’s and Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust. It sets out recommendations that allow health-care professionals to support DIY artificial pancreas systems as a safe and effective treatment option for type 1 diabetes…


This Startup Wants to Throw Satellites into Orbit With a Giant Centrifuge

Getting into space is hard, and one of the reasons is that it takes a lot of energy to break free of Earth’s gravity. So far, the only way we’ve found to do that reliably is with rockets, but a startup called SpinLaunch has something else in mind. Using a giant vacuum chamber and a rotating hypersonic tether, the firm hopes to essentially throw satellites into orbit. SpinLaunch has just completed its first kinetic test launch by heaving a vehicle high into the atmosphere…


SpaceX’s Starlink Reveals New Smaller, Rectangular User Dish to Connect to Satellites

SpaceX’s internet-from-space initiative Starlink has unveiled a new rectangular dish that interested customers can buy to tap into the company’s growing satellite constellation in low Earth orbit. It’s a thinner and lighter weight option than the circular dish that Starlink beta users have been testing over the last year…


Open-Sourcing of Protein-Structure Software Is Already Paying Off

It is now relatively trivial to determine the order of amino acids in a protein. Figuring out how that order translates to a complicated three-dimensional structure that performs a specific function, however, is extremely challenging. But after decades of slow progress, Google’s DeepMind AI group announced that it has made tremendous strides toward solving the problem. In July, the system, called AlphaFold, was made open source. At the same time, a group of academic researchers released its own protein-folding software, called RoseTTAFold, built in part using ideas derived from DeepMind’s work…


IBM Says Its New Quantum Chip Can’t Be Simulated by Classic Supercomputers

IBM claims it has taken a major step toward practical quantum computation. On Monday, the company unveiled Eagle, a 127 qubit quantum processor. IBM claims it’s the first such processor that can’t be simulated by a classical supercomputer. To make sense of what that means, the company says to simulate Eagle you would need more classical bits than there are atoms in every human being on the planet. IBM is crediting the breakthrough to a new design that puts the processor’s control components on multiple physical levels while the qubits are located on a single layer. It’s a design the company says allows for a significant increase in computing power…
