Get up and go bots getting closer, study says

University of California San Diego

Robotics researchers at the University of California San Diego have for the first time used a commercial 3D printer to embed complex sensors inside robotic limbs and grippers. But they found that materials commercially available for 3D printing still need to be improved before the robots can be fully functional.

New Hubble Constant Measurement Adds to Mystery of Universe's Expansion Rate

Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI)

In a new paper accepted for publication in The Astrophysical Journal, University of Chicago astronomer Wendy Freedman and her team announced a new measurement of the Hubble constant using a kind of star known as a red giant. Their new observations, made using the Hubble telescope, indicate that the expansion rate for the nearby universe is 69.8 kilometers per second per megaparsec (km/sec/Mpc), which straddle the values derived by the ESA Planck satellite (67.4 km/sec/Mpc) and the Hubble SHOES (74 km/sec/Mpc) teams.
