Mars model provides method for landing humans on Red Planet
Mars model provides method for landing humans on Red Planet
A mathematical model developed by space medicine experts from The Australian National University (ANU) could be used to predict whether an astronaut can safely travel to Mars and fulfil their mission duties upon stepping foot on the Red Planet. The ANU team simulated the impact of prolonged exposure to zero gravity on the cardiovascular system to determine whether the human body can tolerate Mars' gravitational forces - which aren't as strong as on Earth - without fainting or suffering a medical emergency when stepping out of a spacecraft.

Cost now biggest turn-off to smoking
Cost now biggest turn-off to smoking
Rising cigarette prices have overtaken health concerns as the biggest motivator for people to cut down or stop smoking. Researchers from The University of Queensland analysed national survey data and found the cost of cigarettes has become the number one reason Australians who smoke try to quit. Associate Professor Coral Gartner from UQ's School of Public Health said the change in motivation coincided with a shift in government focus, away from mass media anti-smoking educational campaigns to targeting the price of cigarettes.

New UW Photonic Sensing Facility will use fiber-optic cables for seismic sensing, glaciology and more
Watch: Researchers Brad Lipovsky and Marine Denolle explain how fiber-optic cables can be used to sense ground motion. Credit: Kiyomi Taguchi/UW The fiber-optic cables that travel underground, along the seafloor and into our homes have potential besides transmitting videos, emails and tweets. These signals can also record ground vibrations as small as a nanometer anywhere the cable touches the ground.

Report Highlights Technology Advancement and Value of Wind Energy
Wind energy continues to see strong growth, solid performance, and attractive prices in the U.S., according to a report released by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and prepared by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory ÜBerkeley Lab). With levelized costs of just over $30 per megawatt-hour (MWh) for newly built projects, the cost of wind is well below its grid-system, health, and climate benefits.

Carbon market could offset Australia’s huge fire recovery bill
Scientists have put a dollar figure on the cost of recovery and restoration of native flora and fauna after the 2019-2020 summer bushfires. Research led by The University of Queensland and WWF-Australia found an investment of $16 billion a year is needed to restore habitat across 16 million hectares in southern Australia, to prevent species extinction.
