Could satellites like Starlink destroy the Earth’s ozone layer? Tech & Science Daily Podcast

Listen here on the podcast platform of your choice.

A team from the University of Southern California says their research suggests that mega-satellite constellations like SpaceX’s Starlink are releasing large amounts of aluminum oxide into the atmosphere, which could destroy the ozone layer.

The ozone layer in the Earth’s atmosphere absorbs harmful ultraviolet radiation from the sun, which, when exposed, can cause skin cancer and even affect crop yields and food production.

Tech & Science Daily has asked SpaceX for comment on the study but has not yet received a response.

Fernando Auat Cheein, Associate Professor of Robotics and Autonomous Systems at the National Robotarium at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh, explains how their new AI tool can predict crops using videos.

The system can accurately estimate the number of flowers on fruit trees by recognizing patterns and features from videos taken with a commercially available smartphone.

This technology can predict crop yields up to six months before harvest, allowing farmers to better allocate resources such as water and labor, plan harvesting and distribution, and reduce the amount of food wasted.

The first patients in the UK have received a new “revolutionary” device to treat serious conditions such as acid reflux.

The condition occurs when stomach contents flow back into the esophagus – the long tube that carries food from the throat to the stomach.

University Hospital Southampton and Imperial College London are the first NHS trusts in the country to use the implant, called ‘RefluxStop’, with Southampton being the first hospital to use robot-assisted surgery for the procedure.

Alzheimer’s on the mother’s side is linked to an “increased risk” of the disease and there are urgent warnings about the heatwave in Greece as the death toll among tourists rises to five.

In addition, the first “major lunar standstill” in almost 20 years is planned for this weekend.
