Gasars are ultralight, durable, they absorb sounds, energy, damp vibrations, and conduct higher temperatures well. These new materials developed in Poland by scientists at the AGH University of Science and Technology in Kraków are desirable, for example, in the aerospace industry and can contribute to protecting our planet from climate change.
Following Mark Zuckerberg’s vision of an augmented and virtual reality metaverse of the future, Dr. Marta R. Jabłońska, from the Faculty of Economics and Sociology at the University of Lodz talks to PAP about the potential threats from the metaverse, but says there are positives too.
CyberRadar, a contactless device enabling safe breath monitoring in patients, has been developed by scientists from the Gdańsk University of Technology and the Medical University of Gdańsk. The device can help medics in the fight against COVID-19 and in diagnosing people with respiratory and circulatory problems.
Two independent satellite technologies (microwave - GNSS and laser - SLR) have been successfully integrated for the first time. Taking place on the Galileo and GLONASS navigation satellites, the integration means the Earth reference systems can be achieved in space and give more precise observations of our planet.
Instead of carrying out spectroscopic research in foreign synchrotrons, scientists can take advantage of compact and much cheaper sources of radiation that will scan the material to the deepest atomic shell and enable them to detect elements present in the material, and even the types of atomic bonds.
