Biometric data is derived from measuring and calculating unique human characteristics like fingerprints and palm prints. For decades, these basic forms of biometric data have been used to grant access to secure areas. For example, employees are often required to scan their face, eyes, palm, or thumb to gain access to high-security areas. Similar to employers, today’s landlords are using biometric data for security. However, tenants are concerned that landlords will sell their data to marketers. Today, all data is valuable, including real estate data. Although landlords are using biometrics to increase security, tenants aren’t willing to give up their. The post first appeared on .

A new study finds 40,000 square kilometers of the lunar surface has the capacity to hold water, which is about double previous estimates. 0.15% of the lunar surface is permanently shadowed, with ~10% of this area distributed in patches smaller than 100 m, that is at scales smaller than previously mapped by LOLA topography-based illumination models. The most numerous cold traps on the Moon are ~1 cm in scale. The abundance of small-scale cold traps implies that future missions exploring for ice may more easily target and access one of these potential reservoirs. Given the high loss rates due to micrometeorite impact. The post first appeared on .

Purdue University engineers have created white paint that can keep surfaces up to 18 degrees Fahrenheit cooler than their ambient surroundings – almost like a refrigerator does, but without consuming energy. Commercial “heat rejecting paints” currently on the market reflect only 80%-90% of sunlight and cannot achieve temperatures below their surroundings. The white paint that Purdue researchers created reflects 95.5% sunlight and efficiently radiates infrared heat. Earth’s surface would actually get cooler with this technology if the paint were applied to a variety of surfaces including roads, rooftops and cars all over the world. The paint would not only send.
