Scientists have no good news, the levels of SARS-CoV-2 antibodies are falling rapidly

So far we have heard several different positions, but the latest research is unfortunately not very optimistic. British scientists suggest that the levels of antibodies produced by the immune system in response to SARS-CoV-2 drop significantly a few months after infection, and there is no reason to disbelieve them, because for 3 months they tested hundreds of thousands of patients, namely 365,104 adults . Everything took place in three rounds, between June and September, to track changes in antibody levels. During the tests, SARS-CoV-2 antibodies were detected in over 17,000 people, 30% of which were asymptomatic.

Nanostructures by a Polish scientist are the basis of future electronics

It seems that the experiments conducted by Dr. Bart\u0142omiej Graczykowski have finally been appreciated in the world, because the results of research on unique nanostructures have been published in the prestigious Nano Letters and Nano Energy magazines. Specifically, it is about controlling the flow of sound in nanostructures and new possibilities in the field of filtering acoustic waves. And although the structures being the subject of the doctor's research have potentially many different applications, the author himself is very eager to point to the further development of mobile telephony and wireless communication:

See how the astronauts chose the US president in the space house

During the early years of spaceflight, astronauts traveled to space for days or weeks at most, but today is completely different - most of them are on the ISS on 6-month missions, so the government had to give them the opportunity to vote. This happened in 1997 and NASA assures that nothing will change in this regard, astronauts will be able to vote in elections regardless of where they are in the solar system. However, as you can easily guess, certain procedures must be followed, which is why astronauts must first fill out some forms, just like soldiers on missions.

Space tourism is becoming a reality. This is the first commercial ISS module

More and more companies are created and join the private sector of the space industry. It's nice to look at, because nothing drives development as much as fierce competition. Another company that can do a lot of good to great space conquest plans is Axiom Space.

Have you seen a UFO in the sky? It could be ADIFO, a supersonic flying saucer

Two Romanian scientists decided to use their experience and the latest technologies to build the first small flying saucer, with its appearance resembling the iconic spaceships of alien civilizations, well known to us from comic books and sci-fi movies, on which aliens visit our planet since the dawn of time and perform terrifying human experiments.

Ordinary drones are a thing of the past. This is what MetaFly looks like, the bionic drone of the future

Drones for filming or for delivering parcels are becoming more and more popular due to the increasing possibilities and falling prices. The future, however, will belong to completely different, more futuristic flying devices, which have little to do with current flying devices.

Mysterious samples from the asteroid Ryugu will land on Earth in a week's time. "It is a threat to humanity"

Epidemiologists have been sounding the alarm for years that the expansion of the population into new territories, such as the Amazon, is associated with the possibility of infection with previously unknown viruses, which have a much more dangerous pandemic potential than SARS-CoV-2. It is no different with space missions, during which we can transfer viruses, fungi or bacteria to alien Earth objects. While agencies make sure that doesn't happen, there's really no way to prevent it completely (see here).

Google Maps now with more powerful GPS will make it easier to navigate through cities

The changes are to be spectacular, at least that's what Google announces in its message. Engineers modified the positioning algorithm and supported it with the latest 3D city models. Thanks to this, our phone, even if it loses the GPS signal between urban buildings, the application will correct the reflections and accurately indicate our position, based on the forecasts of movement around the buildings.

This is what Cyberpunk 2077 looks like on a PC in 8K, RTX, HDR and the maximum possible settings

And there is something to admire, because it is a great world where you can immerse yourself completely for hundreds of hours. A fan of FPS games with the nickname Xenthorx, he published a footage of Cyberpunk 2077 on his YouTube channel. We can see Night City in all its glory, i.e. in 8K quality, in the maximum possible settings, including RTX and HDR technologies.

Another Starship prototype is already on the launch pad. Tests this year

Although the SN8 prototype made a successful flight, it ended in a major explosion and destruction of the vehicle. After all, this is why tests are performed to detect and eliminate all defects earlier. Elon Musk announced that the test collected valuable data that will allow the maiden flight of SN9 to be carried out from start to finish in a perfect way.

Deepfake with Queen Elizabeth II. The faded border between fiction and reality

The material was prepared by specialists from Channel 4, who indicated that their very controversial work is to become a warning for people to stop trusting their eyes, because the border between the real world and fiction has already been blurred. It happened thanks to the deepfake technology, thanks to which you can freely replace people's faces using artificial intelligence algorithms.
