News and analysis from the world of engineering
  • A crewed spaceship built to carry private passengers has reached space – and generated its first revenue – for the first time. Virgin Galactic’s VSS Unity landed safely in the Mojave Desert in California after the historic flight, which also marked the aircraft’s fourth powered test flight. The achievement has been recognised by the US […] The post Passenger carrying spaceship touches edge of space for first time appeared first on The Engineer.

  • MIT team devises method for fabricating nanoscale solid objects of any shape and building in functionality Producing three-dimensional objects at very small scales with precision has often been a difficulty for engineers. Especially in the medical devices field, such objects could have great utility, but while two-dimensional patterns can be etched with precision by lasers, […] The post Shrinking scaffolding creates nanoscale 3D objects of any shape appeared first on The Engineer.

  • Microcapsule technology could make post-combustion carbon capture cheaper, safer, and more efficient claim researchers in the US. Led by the University of Pittsburgh and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) the advance hopes to mitigate the USA’s CO2 output from coal and natural gas, which amounted to 1,713 million metric tons of CO2, or 98 per […] The post Microcapsule technology could yield advance in carbon capture appeared first on The Engineer.

  • A multidisciplinary team from MIT has developed a smart pill that can monitor health from the stomach and release drugs on command using a smartphone app. The 3D-printed pill combines the work of several previous studies that have looked at ingestible technologies to observe and treat disease. Known as a gastric resident electronic (GRE) system, […] The post Smart pill from MIT monitors and medicates via Bluetooth appeared first on The Engineer.

  • The Future Powertrain Conference (FPC2019) is a two day UK event created to bring together industry and academic experts within the powertrain development field. It will open up presentations and discussions on the solutions to the challenges faced by the engineering industry in the UK and internationally over the next ten years.
