Inside a new #microprocessor, the #transistors — tiny electronic switches that collectively perform computations — are made with #carbon #nanotubes, rather than silicon. By devising techniques to overcome the nanoscale defects that often undermine individual nanotube transistors, researchers have created the first computer chip that uses thousands of these switches to run programs.
Thirty years ago, on Aug. 25, 1989, NASA's Voyager 2 spacecraft made a close flyby of Neptune, giving humanity its first close-up of our solar system's eighth planet. Marking the end of the Voyager mission's Grand Tour of the solar system's four giant planets — Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune — that first was also a last: No other spacecraft has visited Neptune since.

Filmmaker Jan van IJken's "#Becoming" reveals the fascinating #genesis of #animal #life. A single #cell is transformed into a complete, complex living organism with a beating heart and running bloodstream. Observe the stages of development that occur within an #Alpine #newt embryo (#Ichthyosaura #alpestris) in this fascinating six minute time-lapse captured over a three week period.
