Stephen Hawking is one of the most brilliant minds next to Albert Einstein in the 20th and 21st Century. As an acclaimed physicists in the science community, Stephen Hawking has announced another ingenious idea; why not send a nano-satellite to the nearest star system, Alpha Centauri? If we were to travel to Alpha Centauri with mankind’s fastest recorded speed at 33000 mph, this would take us approximately 43,000 years to reach. Using nano-technology, Stephen Hawking and his team created a nano-satellite, called Star Chip, and their goal is to “beam” it using laser technology to Alpha Centauri. With this idea, Star Chip can travel at 1/5 of the speed of light and reach Alpha Centauri in approximately 20 years. Star Chip will consists of standard satellite functions including a camera, which means, we will be able see images of its voyage.
It’s 2017 and technology has come a long way. We have science fiction movies and TV shows where humanoid androids and robots exist, now we are one step closer to making it a reality. Along with microchips getting smaller, Artificial Intelligence getting smarter, and drones circling the sky, humanity is now creating operational machines to assist with large loads, and of course for war games. Are we one step closer to our own demise, or will we see a bright future? Enjoy the video 🙂
Have you ever wondered…what are you eating? Or how we can feed 6 Billion people? Before technology, many wondered how we would feed the ever growing population of the human race. Think about it…crops takes a while to grow, and there are limitations, such as the location, and disturbances such as weather and insects. These are some thoughts humans were thinking prior to technology. Now that technology is in place, we can solve almost anything. And now the question is…how has technology change what we eat?

Whoever watches or reads Marvel’s comic books should be psyched, specially if you’re an Iron Man fan. A British inventor is in the verge of making history, and revolutionizing flight technology by taking science fiction to reality by inventing a real life Iron Man suit. Enjoy the video 🙂
Looks like humanity is heading to a bright future.
Whoever grew up in the 90s, remember the Term CPU and what it does? Now the game is changing… along with quantum computers in the making and evolving, companies like Google, Microsoft and IBM are racing towards making the most powerful AI accelerators . These AI accelerators are CPUs but with intelligence. They will have the ability to learn, and adapt according to yours and PC needs. For example, similar to that in cell phones where the phone uses its sensors to turn on, off, and lower its screen brightness accordingly to save battery life, these AI accelerators will take those settings to the next level. Imagine this technology taking over lives…and when it does, do you think our lives will become dictated by technology?
We are still in the age of rocks and stones when it comes to quantum technology. To operate such technology requires a great caliber of energy and resource. For example, in order for the quantum chip to operate, you need to place it in a room that’s colder than space, colder than the coldest temperature observed in the universe which is -272 degrees Celsius.

D-Wave a Canadian Vancouver based company has unveiled a second version of their revolutionary quantum computer. The second version of this technology is now allowing developers to understand and calculate even more complex algorithm, such as, solving some issues of humanity – poverty, famine, global warming…etc.
With such powerful tool, are we one step closer to creating the Matrix?
From heavy and thorough sterilization to a Portable LED Foil humanity is one step closer to purifying water from almost anywhere. Ohio State university has invented a Deep Ultra-Violet (Deep UV) portable foil, that can emit powerful UV lights when charged. Currently, those requiring to purify water are using Large Mercury lamps. According to one of the engineers from Ohio State, Robert Meyers, “”Mercury is toxic and the lamps are bulky and electrically inefficient. LEDs, on the other hand, are really efficient, so if we could make UV LEDs that are safe and portable and cheap, we could make safe drinking water wherever we need it.”
This Portable LED Foil, uses new foil-based nanotechnology that uses a semiconductor growth method known as molecular beam epitaxy, where beams of molecules are used to vaporize materials and then allow them to land on a surface where they self-organize into nanostructure layers.
With this new technology, it can change many peoples lives, specially those who does not have the opportunity to drink purified water.
So how does a UV Light kill microbes? Check out the video Below;
Over the century, ever since we’ve came to known about space, and how extremely dangerous it is – boy… how lucky we are to be alive here on Earth. Knowing some of the dangers in space, such as, Solar Storm from our own Sun, Hyper Novas, Black Holes and specially Asteroids – the real known threat to Earth, in which, at one point in time wiped out the Dinosaurs. Humanity is always thinking when that next asteroid is going to hit Earth. And during these 100 years we’ve come close encounters with many large Asteroids, but humanity did not find out until the Asteroid had actually passed through. For example, on Oct 29, 2016 there was another Asteroid that passed by the Earth and we did not notice it until it passed us. Now with time running short, NASA has invented Scout, a computer program designed to detect Asteroids. Scout accesses data from all of Earth’s telescopes, and tries to identifies any threats using rigorous calculations. Thus far, Scout is still in Beta and currently being tested in the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California. Let’s cross our fingers that Scout will do its job.
