Studying the speed of multi-hop Bluetooth networks

Bluetooth technology is the most widespread standard wireless communication. One of its applications is the creation of electronic sensor networks. Researchers in the UPV/EHU’s Electronic Design Research Group have studied the performance of Bluetooth networks and measured the delays taking place in information transmission time. Transmitting the information received quickly and effectively is essential if a sensor is to successfully carry out its function. —> Read More Here

Research team proves the efficacy of new drug against stem cells that provoke the growth of cancer

An Andalusian team of researchers led by the University of Granada has designed a drug that fights cancerogenic stem cells responsible for the onset and development of cancer, for relapse after chemotherapy, and for metastasis. The new drug, called Bozepinib, has been successfully tested in mice, and has a selective action against cancerogenic stem cells for breast and colon cancer, as well as melanoma. —> Read More Here

New measuring system to objectively ascertain the fatigue level in physicians through eye movement

An international team of scientists including researchers from the U. of Granada find that the speed of saccadic movements (rapid eye movements) is an excellent way to objectively measure the level of fatigue in a physician. Results prove that after a 24-hour medical shift, the speed of saccadic movements diminishes and the subjective perception of fatigue augments. However, the execution of simulated laparoscopic tests is not affected by this type of fatigue. —> Read More Here

Live Discussion: How Good is the Science of “Interstellar?”

The highly anticipated film “Interstellar” is based on science and theory; from wormholes, to the push-pull of gravity on a planet, to the way a black hole might re-adjust your concept of time. But just how much of the movie is really true to what we know about the Universe? There has also been some discussion whether the physics used for the visual effects in the movie actually was good enough to produce some science. But how much of it is just creative license?

Today, (Wed. November 26) at 19:00 UTC (3 pm EDT, 12:00 pm PDT), the Kavli foundation hosts a live discussion with three astrophysicists who will answer viewers’ questions about black holes, relativity and gravity, to separate the movie’s science facts from its science fiction.
