'NASA's InSight lander on path to Mars' 26.5.2018 DNA: Recent Columns
NASA's InSight lander - the first mission dedicated to exploring the deep interior of Mars - has made its first course correction towards the red planet, the US space agency said. InSight, short for Interior Exploration using Seismic Investigations, Geodesy and Heat Transport, is currently encapsulated in a protective aeroshell, which launched on top of an Atlas V 401 rocket on May 5 from California, US. Yesterday, the spacecraft fired its thrusters for the first time to change its flight path, NASA said in a statement. This activity, called a trajectory correction maneuver, will happen a maximum of six times to guide the lander to Mars. "This first maneuver is the largest we'll conduct," said Fernando Abilleira of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), InSight's Deputy Mission Design and Navigation Manager. "The thrusters will fire for about 40 seconds to impart a velocity change of 3.8 metres per second to the spacecraft. That will put us in the right ballpark as we aim for Mars," Abilleira ...

'Electric vehicles could save billions on energy storage' 26.5.2018 DNA: Wide Angle
Using electric vehicles (EVs) as mobile power storage could eliminate the need to build costly stationary grid storage for energy from renewable sources, a study has found. Using California as a case study, researchers from the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) in the US looked at the issue of large-scale deployment of renewables across the energy grid. They analysed the associated problems of variability (daytime overproduction, or evening surge demand), and how controlled charging of mandated EVs could help to mitigate these problems. "By removing the need to build new stationary grid storage, EVs can provide a dual benefit of decarbonising transportation while lowering the capital costs for widespread renewables integration," said Jeffery Greenblatt, co-author of the study published in the journal Environmental Research Letters. "These benefits are not limited to California, but are applicable worldwide whenever EVs and renewables generation become widespread," said ...

3D-printed, driverless boats have now been developed 26.5.2018 DNA: Popular News
MIT scientists have designed a fleet of 3D-printed, driverless boats that could ferry goods and people, helping clear up road congestion in waterway-rich cities such as Amsterdam, Bangkok and Venice - where canals run alongside and under bustling streets and bridges. The autonomous boats offer high maneuverability and precise control. They can be built using low-cost printer, making mass manufacturing more feasible. In the future, the researchers also envision the driverless boats being adapted to perform city services overnight, instead of during busy daylight hours, further reducing congestion on both roads and canals. "Imagine shifting some of infrastructure services that usually take place during the day on the road - deliveries, garbage management, waste management - to the middle of the night, on the water, using a fleet of autonomous boats," said Daniela Rus, from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the US. The boats - rectangular 4-by-2-metre hulls equipped with sensors, ...
