Scientists were able to collect the largest digital camera ever built for a space mission. The camera consists of 106 individual electronic sensors. The resulting “one billion pixels,” will serve as a super-sensitive “eye” for the mission Gaia ESA, which aims to create a three-dimensional map of the Milky Way.Gaia will map a billion stars within our own Galaxy during its five-year mission, which will begin in 2013.
Researchers from the University of RMIT (Australia) and Australian National University, offered to produce batteries that accumulate the electric charge produced by piezoelectric plates. These plates produce electricity at a pressure on them. As explained by Madhu Baskaran, one of the researchers, plate, for example, can be built into the sole of the shoe that while jogging to produce electricity,
