Levitation techniques are no longer confined to the laboratory thanks to University of Bristol engineers who have developed an easier way for suspending matter in mid-air by developing a 3D-printed acoustic levitator.
US startup Hyperloop One on Wednesday announced the first successful full-systems test of its near-supersonic rail transit system.
Although scientists have been able to levitate specific types of material, a pair of UChicago undergraduate physics students helped take the science to a new level.
The whirring sound of Hyperloop UC's hover engines filled the conference room as an anxious crowd shuffled closer for a better view.
As the world's population becomes increasingly urbanised, it is estimated that the number of journeys measured in passenger-kilometres will triple by 2050. Roads simply can't absorb this increase.
Japan's state-of-the-art maglev train clocked a new world speed record Tuesday in a test run near Mount Fuji, smashing through the 600 kilometre (373 miles) per hour mark, as Tokyo races to sell the technology abroad.
Following is an interview with Dr John Durrell, newly appointed Lecturer in Superconductivity, by Philip Guildford, Director of Research:
Splash form tektites are tiny pieces of natural glass created out of spinning drops of molten rock flung from the earth during an extra-terrestrial impact—when the earth is hit by asteroids or comets. They come in a myriad ...
Diamagnetic levitation of pyrolitic graphite over a single magnet has been achieved, using commercially available magnetic field domain printing technology. Using this approach, levitation applications, including bearings ...
The effectiveness of crystalline pharmaceuticals is not only influenced by molecular composition; the structure of the crystals is also important because it determines both the solubility and the rate of dissolution, which ...
