A custom-made 3-D printer has been used to make living tissue-like material that could one day serve medical purposes, according to British scientists.
Research into the wonder material graphene and the neurochemistry of the human brain will receive up to two billion euros in funding, the biggest research award of its kind in history.
The health properties of red wine have long been debated but an Australian biochemist believes he has created a drop so loaded with antioxidants that it could treat a range of ills.
Claims that global warming can be braked by dissolving huge quantities of rock in the sea to absorb carbon emissions are laden with flaws, according to a new study.
A U.S. spacecraft orbiting Mars has provided evidence of an ancient crater lake fed by groundwater, adding further support to theories that the Red Planet may once have hosted life, said NASA.
Geophysicists’ current models of how the mantle melts, enters magma chambers and eventually forms the ocean floor can’t explain the high levels of trace elements found in the ocean floor, and are “naïve”, said Australian researchers.
Solar energy and wind energy technology is well known and has been around for decades. The major barrier to implementation, however, has been storing that energy.
Organic photovoltaic cells may be the answer to the 1.5 billion ‘energy poor’ people, living without access to electricity from the grid.
The clash of two titans – physics and chemistry – are major barriers to human space travel to Mars and beyond, and may well make it impossible … at least with existing technologies.
