A vehicle typically consists of several thousands of spot joints such as rivets, clinch joints or spot welds. They are used to bond together different parts of the vehicle, for example the car bonnet. But the rivets are costly and do not have great strength. Moreover, spot joints require a certain sheet thickness to provide sufficient strength. At the same time, however, the automotive industry is keen to use thinner sheets, in order to build lighter vehicles and reduce production costs.

New theoretical physics research reveals rare materials that possess both controllable magnetic and electric polarization properties at near-room temperatures.

In the past years, invisibility cloaks were developed for various senses. Objects can be hidden from light, heat or sound. However, hiding of an object from being touched still remained to be accomplished. Scientists have now succeeded in creating a volume in which an object can be hidden from touching similar to a pea under the mattress of a princess.

We are extremely excited about the possibilities the Nano satellites can bring for India. We are at ASU, with our strength in electronics and communications, particularly well placed to take advantage this. Our congratulations to the Canadian teams for their accomplishment.

Washington: Two nanosatellites have been launched from Yasny, Russia, at by Anthony Moffat, of the University of Montreal and the Center for Research in Astrophysics of Quebec, and the Canadian research and technology team he leads. 

Costing a fraction of conventional space telescopes and similar in size and weight to a car battery, the satellites are two of six that will work together to shed light on the structures and life stories of some of the brightest stars in the sky, uncovering unique clues as to the origins of our own Sun and Earth.
