Crime and Virtual Punishment

JusticeGraphic.png

University of Utah students have created a new mobile game that demonstrates how software algorithms used by many of the nation’s judicial courts to evaluate defendants could be biased like humans. Justice.exe is a free app in which the software’s algorithm tries to predict how the player would punish criminals.

Engineers Investigate a Simple, No-Bake Recipe to Make Bricks From Martian Soil

Marsbrick6.jpg

Explorers planning to settle on Mars might be able to turn the planet’s red soil into bricks without needing to use an oven or additional ingredients. Instead, they would just need to apply pressure to compact the soil—the equivalent of a blow from a hammer. These are the findings of a study published in Nature Scientific Reports on April 27, 2017. The study was authored by a team of engineers at the University of California San Diego and funded by NASA.

Video Captures Bubble-Blowing Battery in Action

PNNL researchers have created a unique video that shows oxygen bubbles inflating and later deflating inside a tiny lithium-air battery. The knowledge gained from the video could help make lithium-air batteries that are more compact, stable and can hold onto a charge longer.
