There are 1.2 billion people around the world do not have reliable access to fresh, potable water. That’s why advancements in water purification technology are so important. Fortunately, there are a lot of innovative folks working on creative ways to solve water-scarcity issues by developing new techniques, maximizing efficiency and sometimes even producing drinking water from thin air.
Internet connections get faster but websites get more complex—and that means we often still have to wait an age for pages to load. Now, a new technique from MIT that helps browsers gather files more efficiently could change that.
Stephanie Lampkin learned to code at age 13. By 15, she was a full-stack web developer, fluent in the languages of computer programming. She has a Stanford engineering degree and an MBA from MIT.
Student engineers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have won a competition to design a Hyperloop system to transport people through high-speed vacuum tubes.
Researchers at MIT and Harvard figured out how to produce pancreatic beta cells — the ones that produce insulin — in large quantities back in 2014. The same intercollegiate team announced in the journal Nature on Monday that they’ve now managed to implant those cells into mice that have been genetically designed to suffer from Type 1 diabetes — without the cells being rejected.
A sneeze can launch mucus and saliva out of your system at 10 miles per hour(not 100 or more, contrary to common lore), often spreading pathogens in the process. But until very recently, researchers didn’t have a good idea of how exactly your nasal fluids move through space.
