New technique may enable speedy, on-demand design of softer, safer neural devices. Credit: Courtesy of the researchers Technique may enable speedy, on-demand design of softer, safer neural devices. The brain is one of our most vulnerable organs, as soft as the softest tofu. Brain implants, on the other hand, are […]

A Soyuz spacecraft launches from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan in 2017 using a conventional, fuel-intensive engine. UW researchers have developed a mathematical model that describes how a new type of engine — one that promises to make rockets fuel-efficient, more lightweight and less complicated to construct — works.

For the first time, academics developed a systematic literature review of the causes and cures of poor megaproject performance. They identified six key themes and looked at areas where a project might fail, analyzing the problems and solutions. Academics at University College London have identified 18 reasons why megaprojects such […]
