Luxury Car Maker Jaguar that recently launched its latest E-PACE crossover has set a new world record, by achieving a spectacular gravity-defying Guinness World Records title. The car manufacturer decided to take on the stunt called ‘Furthest barrel roll in a production vehicle’. The stunt can be seen in many action films like James Bond. The car travelled through the air turning a minimum of 270-degrees, landing safely on the other side & achieving the spectacular 15.3 metre-long barrel roll.
Researchers from six Indian institutes, which also include IIT-Kharagpur and IIM-Calcutta, have developed a low-cost and fast deployable wireless communication infrastructure that is driven by human mobility to aid disaster management services. The researchers are working together since the last three years to enable the delivery of decentralised mobile communication services under project DiSARM. The project is funded by Information Technology Research Academy under the Ministry of Electronics and Information
Researchers have developed a new technology that enables machines to make sense of 3D objects in a richer and more human-like way. The move is following making robots more suitable for daily chores the new technology also helps robots fill in the blind spots in its field of vision, to reconstruct the parts it cannot see. According to researchers, robots can also “imagine” any parts that are out of view. Researchers trained their algorithm on a dataset of roughly 4,000 complete 3D scans of common household objects.
In a celebration to mark the 2nd anniversary of its New Horizons’ historic Pluto flyby, NASA has released new maps of the planet and its largest moon, Charon, revealing their complex topography. In July 2015, NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft made its historic flight, providing the first close-up images of Pluto and its moons and collecting other data. Cthe ientists are still analysing and uncovering data that New Horizons recorded and sent home after the encounter.
Researchers have discovered a very distant galaxy which is about a thousand times brighter than the Milky Way. It is the brightest of the submillimetre galaxies which is a class of ultraluminous infrared galaxies. To measure it, researchers used the Gran Telescopio Canarias. The galaxy’s light, amplified by a much nearer galaxy cluster acting as a lens, forms an image which appears much bigger than it should. The galaxy is notable for having a high rate of star formation.
