festo cobot

The cobot uses six pneumatic direct drives, instead of the typical electric motors and mechanical transmission, to move. Each of the six drives consists of a circular chamber with a moveable partition. Differences in air pressure on either side of the partition wall in the chamber cause the it to shift, which then moves the […]

Hubble Telescope, Supercomputing Enable Exoplanet Observations

September 22nd, 2022 | Industry News
Archival observations of 25 hot Jupiters by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope have been analysed by an international team of astronomers, enabling them to answer five open questions important to our understanding of exoplanet atmospheres. Amongst other findings, the team found that the presence of metal oxides and hydrides in the hottest exoplanet atmospheres was clearly correlated with the atmospheres' being thermally inverted.

The first exoplanet detection happened only 30 years ago—but now, thanks to rapid advances in observation and data processing technologies, astronomers are working to not only detect exoplanets, but also to characterize them. This work—enabled by a supercomputer at the University of Cambridge—is providing unprecedented understanding of these extraterrestrial atmospheres. Header image: artist’s impression of […]
