Researchers at the RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia have developed a breakthrough carbon capture technology to turn carbon dioxide back into solid carbon using liquid metals. This new technology offers a safe and fairly inexpensive way to remove harmful CO₂ emissions from the atmosphere.
High-tech fabrics with thermal properties that keep marathon runners cool or high-altitude hikers warm are nothing new, but until now there has never been a material that does both by changing its insulating properties in response to the environment.
a team of bioengineers from Vanderbilt University announced a major breakthrough in cancer fighting treatments and found early success using it on human melanoma tissue.
Aerogels also exhibit incredibly high internal surface area—in fact, a typical piece of aerogel the size of an ice cube has about half a football field’s worth of surface area wrapped up inside its pores.
Aleph Farms, an Israeli startup, is shaping the future of food by producing cell-grown, slaughter-free meat identical to traditional free-range meat.
UCLA biologists report they have transferred a memory from one marine snail to another, creating an artificial memory, by injecting RNA from one to another. This research could lead to new ways to lessen the trauma of painful memories with RNA and to restore lost memories.
Pound for pound, it is stronger than steel, as flexible as rubber, and tougher than Kevlar. Made almost entirely from large proteins, spider silk is antimicrobial, hypoallergenic, biodegradable, waterproof, and heat-stable in temperatures up to 250 degrees Celsius.
