Robo-trousers could keep elderly mobile

A team of British researchers thinks the future lies in wearable soft robotics. They've developed robotic muscles; air-filled bubbles of plastic that can raise a leg from a seated to a standing position. Getting this technology into the trousers might be 10 years away, but it is set to give that added boost to our ability to stand and walk when we need it most.........

SETI scientists spot 72 signals 'from alien galaxy' 3bn light years away

The researchers at the SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) Institute discovered the unusual signals when examining 400 terabytes of radio data from a dwarf galaxy three billion light-years away from Earth. The signals they spotted - fast radio bursts (FRBs) are bright and quick pulses which were first discovered in 2007.........
