Japan Researchers Succeed Transmitting Solar Power Using Wireless Microwaves

Paving the way for generating space-based solar power, Japanese researchers have succeeded in transmitting electrical power wirelessly to a pinpoint target using microwaves. The team at the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (Jaxa) transformed 1.8 kilowatts of electric power into microwaves and transmitted it with accuracy to a receiver located 55 metres away, Wall Street Journal reported. In the experiment conducted ...

60 Malaria-Transmitting Mosquito Species Identified

A genetic study has revealed that not every mosquito but only 60 species of mosquitoes have evolved to better spreading malaria parasite out of 450 different species. These are genetically better at transmitting malaria than even some of their close cousins, the study said. The study may advance understanding about the biological differences between mosquitoes that transmit malaria, and ultimately, ...
