Airbus showed the project of the space station LOOP. The service life of the ISS is coming to an end and it is already necessary to create a replacement for it. Against the backdrop of what is happening in the world, humanity will either be able to create a new version of the space station accessible to all, or will build its own stations in near-Earth orbit. Airbus unveiled the concept of the new space station LOOP. The new project is a universal three-story station for life and work in space. The station can be delivered into orbit in a single launch of SpaceX's super-heavy launch vehicle. Each floor is 8 meters in diameter and can be converted into living quarters, laboratories and docking stations. The decks are connected at the center of the structure by a so-called "tunnel", which is surrounded by greenhouse modules. The LOOP station is designed for a crew of four, but can be adapted to accommodate up to eight people.

Breakthrough ‘digital brain-spine bridge’ helps paralyzed man walk again, regain limb control . A multinational research team of neurosurgeons and neuroscientists has developed a brain-spine interface (BSI) technology that transforms a paralysed person’s thought into action through electronic implants placed in their brain and spinal cord.

Elon Musk's Tesla Bot robots have learned to walk slowly. Tesla reported to shareholders on how the development of the universal android Tesla Optimus is progressing, which should become an assistant to a person in everyday life and at work. Also, the engineers of the Elon Musk Corporation taught the Optimus robots to collect things. In the video, anthropomorphic machines shift small items and arrange them in containers. According to Tesla experts, the learning of machines is based on the repetition of certain actions for a person. It is assumed that by the time of release, the Tesla Optimus robot will cost no more than $100,000. In the long term, Tesla Bot robots will bring the company the main income, according to Elon Musk, the demand for them will be up to 10 billion units.

Researchers at Osaka University in Japan have developed a new centipede-like robot. This robot design could be used in search and rescue operations and even space exploration in the future . Using this method, the researchers do not have to directly steer the body axis of the robot, they just have to control its flexibility accurately. This means, according to the researchers, the robot will require much less energy to function while also needing much less computing power to calculate its motion.

scientists at CERN found the first evidence of the rare process by which the Higgs boson decays into a Z boson and a photon. According to CERN, this decay could provide indirect evidence of the existence of particles beyond those predicted by the Standard Model of particle physics. . once scientists get a direct signal that goes beyond the standard model, there would be a need to rewrite part of the physics that is currently accepted.

Scientists at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in the USA are testing a new monitoring system called Guardian , that could detect tsunamis from above the planet. Guardian is an experimental monitoring system, which plugs into the data from GPS and other wayfinding satellites orbiting Earth to provide real-time positional accuracy down to a few inches. system observes the displacing air and the charged particle that slam into the ionosphere as a tsunami occurs.

Chinese unicorn Greater Bay Technology claims to have the solution for what is arguably one of the biggest drawbacks of EV batteries – loss of range in cold weather. Greater Bay Technology surpassed a valuation of $1 billion within two years of its founding. found early success in its first-generation battery cell, which reportedly charges in the same time as it takes for a gas car to refuel. Its battery can gain 124 miles range in just 5 minutes of charging and can go from 0-80 percent state of charge (SoC) in just 8 minutes . tart-up is in talks with other carmakers, who are interested in purchasing its new battery, which can provide a range of 621 miles (1000 kilometers),
