Apple’s beautiful new campus nears completion and employees are set to move in this month. Videographer Duncan Sinfield’s got the latest visual scoop on the tech giant’s “spaceship” campus—officially named Apple Park—with his stunning drone footage of ongoing construction and a special nighttime close-up of the building interior. Hit the jump for the newest sneak peek into Apple’s futuristic campus. Drone pilot Sinfield has consistently provided the public with monthly visual updates of Apple’s 175-acre park in Cupertino since July 2015. Nearly two years later, his latest drone footage shows the campus transformed with the hilly landscape slowly filling in with trees, although turf has yet to be installed. Once complete, the site’s rolling hills will be covered with grassy fields, jogging paths, and over 9,000 native and drought-resistant trees. Designed in collaboration with Foster + Partners , Apple Park prides itself on energy efficiency and will be powered entirely by 100-percent renewable energy. Rooftop solar amounts to 17 megawatts in one of the world’s largest on-site solar energy installations. The 2.9-million-square foot main ring-shaped building will be clad in the world’s largest panels of curved glass. The building is also projected to be one of the world’s largest naturally ventilated structures, requiring no heating or air conditioning for nine months of the year.

The process of moving over 12,000 employees into the campus will begin this month and is expected to take over six months while construction continues through the summer. Apple Park will also feature a visitor’s center with an Apple Store and cafe open to the public. Screenshots via Duncan Sinfield

A new campaign by students at a British University encourages students to take their first pee of the day in their morning shower. And before we all lapse into a collective ewwww , the ‘ Go With the Flow ‘ campaign makes some mighty convincing arguments. The University of East Anglia (UEA) students found that if everyone in the UK changed their early morning bathroom habits, it would save a staggering 190 million gallons of water , and £430 million ($692 million) each year.

Comments Off on Researchers Discover How Nature Makes Powerful Antibiotics That Defy Resistance

A team of researchers from the University of Illinois have made a breakthrough in understanding how a powerful antibiotic agent is made in nature. By solving the decades-old mystery of how the naturally occurring antibiotic nisin is given its structure by the action of enzymes, the team have opened the way to the discovery, production and study of dozens of similar compounds. This type of compound could be useful in fighting food-borne diseases or dangerous microbial infections, and as an added bonus, the compounds also have properties that make it difficult for pathogens to develop resistance to them.

Comments Off on Apple Reveals Building Plan for Amazing Cupertino Campus with over 5MW Solar Roof

When renderings of the new Apple campus in Cupertino, California appeared on the scene in June we were stunned by its innovative shape, now we’ve learned that the new circular spaceship building, designed by Foster and Partners , will have one of the largest corporate solar roofs in the country. New building plans released by Apple to the city of Cupertino show the solar canopy will cover the entirety of the main rounded structure as well as the stand-alone parking structure. Estimates put the structure’s square footage at just over 500,000 which would make the array a whopping 5 megawatt system , allaying our fears that the rumors about Apple running their new campus on natural gas were true.
