In a word no. But people in cars seem to get a free pass for everything.
Researchers at Georgia Tech warn that there is a risk that self-driving cars might be hacked and cause gridlock.
(The Faraday Institution) In a new paper published by Nature Materials entitled ‘Critical Stripping Current Leads to Dendrite Formation on Plating in Lithium Anode Solid Electrolyte Cells,’ Faraday Institution researchers at the University of Oxford have taken a step forward in understanding the mechanisms by which solid-state batteries fail — a necessary prerequisite to avoiding such failures.
Algae blooms regularly make for pretty, swirly satellite photos of lakes and oceans. They also make the news occasionally for poisoning fish, people and other animals. What’s less frequently discussed is the outsize role they play in global carbon cycling. A recent study now reveals surprising facts about carbon flow in phytoplankton blooms. Unexpectedly few bacterial clades with a restricted set of genes are responsible for a major part of the degradation of algal sugars.
