NASA’s Curiosity rover has provided scientists with unexpected insight into the gravity on Mars by using the rover’s sensors as a makeshift gravimeter. The Curiosity rover has accelerometers for measuring acceleration and gyroscopes for measuring orientation and angular velocity on board, just like the sensors in a smartphone which tell you where you are on a map and in which direction you are facing. The very accurate sensors on the Curiosity are used to navigate the surface of Mars and point its other instruments in the right direction. While these instruments weren’t designed for measuring gravity, scientists realized that they could use them to gather data on the mountain that Curiosity is currently exploring, called Mount Sharp. The inspiration for the gravity measurement technique came from a lunar mission almost 50 years ago. Back on the Apollo 17 mission to the Moon in 1972, astronauts were able to measure the lunar gravity using a tool they had on board their … [Read more...] about Curiosity rover learns a new trick: Measuring the gravity of mountains
That’s the idea behind new work carried out by microbiologists at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC), a teaching hospital at Harvard Medical School. Researchers there have developed a microscope that’s enhanced by machine learning technology to help diagnose potentially deadly blood infections, greatly improving patients’ odds of survival in the process. “When someone has an infection in the hospital, patient samples are sent to a microbiology laboratory, where a diagnosis is made,” Dr. James Kirby, director of the Clinical Microbiology Laboratory at BIDMC and associate professor of pathology at Harvard Medical School, told Digital Trends. “There are different types of infections including bacterial, fungus, and parasites. These could be bloodstream infections, urinary tract infections, pneumonia, or diarrhea. The patient sample is examined under a microscope by a microbiology technologist, who recognize shapes, colors, and patterns of the … [Read more...] about New microscope uses A.I. smarts to diagnose deadly blood infections
Stardew Valley developer Eric Barone — better known as “Concerned Ape” — has been promising a multiplayer mode in the hit farming adventure game for a while now, and players who have grown tired of waiting need not wait any longer — the game’s multiplayer is available in beta on PC right now.

You can also start a completely new farm with the cabins already built if you don’t want to mess with your existing masterpiece, and server options allow you to make the farm “friends only,” “invite only,” or completely offline if you decide you want to play on your own again. In addition to using invite codes or your Steam and GOG friends lists, you can play Stardew Valley multiplayer via a LAN connection, … [Read more...] about ‘Stardew Valley’ finally gets multiplayer beta, and you can try it now
Previous Next 1 of 2 Canon has been the best selling interchangeable lens camera brand for more than a decade, but Sony is catching up — and just became the number-one brand of full-frame cameras in 2019. Thanks to other formats, Canon maintains the edge overall, but the race is neck and neck. The question of which company makes the better camera is no different than the Apple vs. Android debate — the answer depends on exactly who’s asking. If you’re a photographer who demands an optical viewfinder, a DSLR is the way to go — and that’s Canon’s bread and butter. But if you’re looking for the best performance in a mirrorless camera, that’s where Sony shines. Canon entered the full-frame mirrorless category in 2018 with the EOS R, but it’s still catching up to Sony in this department. In the end, it’s the little details — and what and how you shoot — that will end the tug-of-war … [Read more...] about Canon vs. Sony: Which camera brand belongs in your bag?
