In the last two years, many things like corona virus epidemic, war have been in the spotlight. The Corona virus has caused significant damage worldwide. However, many important developments have taken place in the field of technology during this period. Every year there are new experiments in the field of science and technology, but this time the number is higher. It has been only 2 months since the beginning of the year 2022 and during this period many important developments have taken place all over the world. On the one hand, the world’s most powerful telescope has been launched, on the other hand, the timely delivery of the defibrillator saved the life of a 71-year-old man. Also, for the first time, carbon capture technology has been invented and Alan Musk has said that he will invest Rs 730 crore. Let’s take a look at some of the important events that have taken place in the field of science and technology in the last few days.
The most powerful telescope in the world
The world’s most powerful James Webb telescope, sent by NASA, reached its final destination on January 24, one million miles from Earth. This telescope is in the orbit of Langridge Plant (L2) about 1.5 million km away from the Earth. It will orbit the sun like the earth. The telescope has reached its final destination after a journey of 30 days in space. This telescope is 100 times more powerful than Hubble and is capable of conducting microscopic studies in space. Gold worth Rs 25 lakh has been returned to the telescope’s optics. In short, if it is placed on the moon, it will easily detect a fly flying over the earth. It cost about ७ 9.7 billion.
Delivery of defibrillator for the first time by drone
Drones are being used for many purposes. Drones are also used by the military. Also, it is used for delivery of goods. However, drones were first used in Sweden for medical emergencies. Drones have been instrumental in saving the life of a 71-year-old man in Sweden. An elderly man suffered a heart attack while falling down, after which a defibrillator was delivered by drone and saved his life. A defibrillator is a device used for electric shock during cardiac arrest.
Carbon capture technology
Carbon capture technology has been the talk of the town for the past few days. Researchers at the University of Delaware showed a video of a hydrogen-powered electrochemical system capturing 99 percent of carbon dioxide from the air. Tesla chief Alan Musk has also said that it will spend around Rs 730 crore on the technology. He tweeted that he would give a reward of Rs 730 crore to anyone who invents carbon dioxide emission technology. Meanwhile, it is important to know what this technology is. Carbon capture technology is the process of capturing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Carbon dioxide emitted from factories and other plants will be captured and stored elsewhere, thus protecting the environment.
Guinness World Record for the fastest DNA sequencing
A few days ago, Guinness World Records certified researchers at Stanford University for the fastest DNA sequencing technology. The fastest DNA sequencing is done with the help of artificial intelligence and accelerated computers. It took 5 hours and 2 minutes. During this time the doctors took the blood of one patient and cured the patient of the genetic disorder on the same day. This usually takes more than a week. The research was performed on 12 patients, of whom 5 recovered within a few hours. Google and NVIDIA also took part in the research.
For the first time, a woman is free from HIV
A team of doctors in the United States has cured an HIV-infected woman. This is the first time anyone has been successfully treated with a stem cell transplant. Also, this stem cell was donated by a person who already had the natural immunity to fight the HIV virus.
Stronger than steel and lighter than plastic
A team of chemical engineers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology has developed a material that is stronger than steel and lighter than plastic. This material is produced by polymerization process. It can be used in the manufacture of car parts, coatings or bridges. Also, rust will not be a problem.
