The lonely astronaut is about to get a companion. The goal, according to Suntory, is to learn how a zero-gravity, temperature-stable environment affects the "mellowness" of the drinks as they age. The taste of most alcoholic drinks is known to mellow with time, though the mechanisms by which that happens are still unknown. The first samples will return to Earth after one year, while the other group of samples will remain aboard the ISS for at least two years.

The trials will first consist of transfusions made from the stem cells of adult donors. If this blood is received well, the researchers will attempt to give volunteers a transfusion of artificial blood made from stem cells extracted from umbilical cord blood donated by consenting mothers. These tiny transfusions will also give scientists time to study how long the synthetic blood is able to survive inside the human body.

Prof Roy Herbst, chief of medical oncology at Yale Cancer Centre in the US, said the treatment, which uses the body’s immune system to attack cancerous cells, could potentially replace chemotherapy as the standard cancer treatment within five years. In an international trial, 945 patients with advanced melanoma were treated using the drugs ipilimumab and nivolumab. The treatments stopped cancer advancing for nearly a year in 58% of cases, with tumours stable or shrinking for an average of 11.5 months, researchers found.

The optogenetics approach that Pan and Dizhoor are studying circumvents the missing photoreceptors. That means it differs from traditional gene therapy in important ways: It doesn’t fix broken genes, so the therapy should work regardless of which of the 250 genes are causing problems. And instead of trying to resurrect dead or damaged photoreceptors, the scientists aim to transform relay cells into ersatz photoreceptors.

If you’re headed to Dubai in the next couple years, you might want to stop by the Museum of the Future, a space filled with “innovation labs” that will highlight the best in smart cities, energy and transport. It’s no surprise that Dubai would take this 21st century World’s Fair-like approach — it’s probably the most artificial, manufactured place on the planet. So it makes total sense that they’d just go ahead and make it official with a museum about things that haven’t happened yet.

The hybrid aircraft would combine a small combustion jet engine with a battery and an electric motor to drive the propellers potentially using 50 percent less fuel than a conventional engine of the same output. The motor developed by Siemens has a power-to-weight ratio of 5kW/kg which is five times higher than a normal industrial motor giving it considerable power during take-off and climb and reduce the size of engine required for cruising.

Apple continues to aggressively adopt solar to power its data centers. Apple CEO Tim Cook announced that the company plans to spend $850 million to purchase energy from a solar panel farm that is being built by First Solar in Monterey, California. The companies called the deal the largest ever to supply clean power to a commercial user.

Projected figures from Tesla show the gigantic factory producing 500,000 units per year by 2020, with expected battery cell output of 35 GWh/yr and battery pack output figures of 50 GWh/yr. Current global battery output, from a variety of manufacturers, sits at just under 35 GWh/yr. Tesla reports that by the end of its first full production year, the Gigafactory could reduce the cost per kWh of a battery pack by around a third.

Volvo Cars' Drive Me pilot program will push autonomous driving a step closer to reality by putting 100 self-driving XC90 crossovers on Swedish streets. In the pilot project the road friction information from individual cars is shared within a cloud-based system. When the test car detects an icy or slippery road patch, the information is relayed via Volvo Cars' database to other vehicles approaching the slippery area.

Bankrolled in part by Richard Branson's Virgin Group and chipmaker Qualcomm Inc, the project will cost between $1.5 billion and $2 billion. Airbus Defense and Space will build the first 10 spacecraft at its Toulouse, France, facility, before shifting production to an undisclosed site in the USA. Several other companies were vying for the spacecraft contract, including Thales Alenia Space, Space Systems/Loral, Lockheed Martin Corp's Space Systems and OHB of Germany.

CEO Bill Nye, Neil deGrasse Tyson, partners invite public to follow May 2015 mission. Funded entirely by private citizens, the solar sail satellite will hitch a ride to space aboard an Atlas V rocket from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida. The mission will test LightSail’s critical functions, a precursor to a second mission slated for 2016. That second flight will mark the first controlled, Earth-orbit solar sail flight and ride along with the first operational launch of SpaceX's Falcon Heavy rocket.

The upcoming Star Trek 3 will find the crew of the Enterprise finally on their five year mission through space. "It’s all new and fresh. The Klingons, Romulans and other species are great, but it’s time to go further. It has been fun to focus on creating whole new worlds and species.", Lin said.

The new air vehicle effort will progress alongside an Air Force hypersonic weapons program. While today's cruise missiles travel at speeds up to 600 miles per hour, hypersonic weapons will be able to reach speeds of Mach 5 to Mach 10. The new aircraft could be used to transport sensors, equipment or weaponry in the future on much less expensive price.

According to a new design specification from the Military-Industrial Commission in Moscow, a transport aircraft, dubbed PAK TA, will fly at supersonic speeds (up to 2,000 km/h) and will boast an impressively high payload of up to 200 tons. It will also have a range of at least 7,000 kilometers. The PAK TA program envisages 80 new cargo aircraft to be built by 2024. This means in a decade Russia’s Central Command will be able to place a battle-ready armored army anywhere.

A new bionic eye lens currently in development would give humans 3x 20/20 vision, after only 8 minute long surgery. With this remarkable lens, patients would have perfect vision, ending the need for driving glasses, progressive lenses, and contacts, all of which are set to become a dim memory as the eye-care industry is transformed.

Costa Rica deserves a huge round of applause, and perhaps even a high five, for managing to produce all of its electricity from renewables for 75 days straight. According to the state-owned Costa Rican Electricity Institute (ICE), the country hasn’t had to burn fossil fuels to supply the grid with electricity so far in 2015, a stretch that has never been previously attained by any nation.

The future of food is not the return to an agrarian society but the transcendence of it. In time Soylent will be synthesized directly from light, water, and air with designer microorganisms. Genetic engineering to enhance our microbiome, and eventually ourselves. I don’t know who was the first farmer, but I want to be the last. We will make food so cheap only the rich will cook. This new technology can be used to feed the developing world and solve diseases linked to malnourishment!
