3Q: Alan Lightman on science, religion, and our yearning for absolute knowledge
3Q: Alan Lightman on science, religion, and our yearning for absolute knowledge
A few years ago MIT scholar Alan Lightman was lying in a boat off the coast of Maine, staring at the stars, when he felt as if he were "becoming a part of something far larger than himself." This moment, which he calls a "transcendent experience," gave him a greater appreciation for the allure of the ethereal and the permanent.

Hydrogen as a pedalling aid
Hydrogen as a pedalling aid
An e-bike fueled with hydrogen instead of electricity? No, this is not a utopia, but reality: industrial gas specialist Linde has developed a hydrogen pedelec equipped with a compact fuel cell instead of the usual battery. Florian Freund was inspired by the invention for his Matura thesis: He developed a prototype with which the hydrogen e-bike can be refuelled safely at the H2 filling station on the Empa mobility demonstrator move.

Cracking eggshell nanostructure
How is it that fertilized chicken eggs manage to resist fracture from the outside, while at the same time, are weak enough to break from the inside during chick hatching? It's all in the eggshell's nanostructure, according to a new study led by McGill University scientists. Birds have benefited from millions of years of evolution to make the perfect eggshell, a thin, protective biomineralized chamber for embryonic growth that contains all the nutrients required for the growth of a baby chick.

Depth-sensing imaging system can peer through fog
MIT researchers have developed a system that can produce images of objects shrouded by fog so thick that human vision can't penetrate it. It can also gauge the objects' distance. An inability to handle misty driving conditions has been one of the chief obstacles to the development of autonomous vehicular navigation systems that use visible light, which are preferable to radar-based systems for their high resolution and ability to read road signs and track lane markers.
