Green Light Gap Crossed – new research adds some viability to different type of green energy

Plants are really good at getting energy from the sun. It’s kind of their whole thing. Although we can sort of copy the process, photosynthesis hasn’t been seen as a viable source of energy because it cannot convert green light making it not a candidate for technical applications but that may be changing as a research team has been successful in creating a process that fills this gap.

Mini Livers Grown From Skin – new development could save lives and money

The idea of fabricated organs is the stuff of science fiction. We’ve all seen movies and TV shows where they grow a new organ in a lab before they take it from its vat and drop it into the waiting patient. This might be a reality before you know it. Scientists have grown a mini-liver and implanted it into rats. Neat.

Cooking Oil to 3D Printing – new research develops a way to recycle oil

If you cook you’ve probably got a jar of used oil sitting somewhere near your stove. Hopefully you’re not dumping it down the drain. Most people put it out with the trash but what if you could recycle it? Researchers from the University of Toronto have devised a way to turn used oil from McDonald’s into 3D printing resin that is biodegradable.

Diamond Batteries Are Forever – scientists experiment with turning radioactive waste into power source

Remember Batman and Robin? Specifically how Mr. Freeze’s subplot involved him having to steal diamonds to make his suit work? Well that plot point may actually work better now. Scientists at the University of Bristol are looking into a way to turn old radioactive carbon into diamond batteries.

Geoengineering To Save The Planet – radical ideas to buy time in the climate crisis

The icecaps are melting and that’s a major problem for a variety of reasons. One being the rising sea levels but another being that losing the reflective poles will make our planet warmer. Some people want to save the ice by geoengineering. Most of their ideas aren’t really feasible but man are they cool.

Brain Chips – science fiction technology is becoming a reality

Chronic illnesses that attack the mind are the stuff of nightmares for many people. In the future, we may be able to combat these with brain chips implanted directly into our minds. Sure, this sounds like the stuff of science fiction (and is the basis of many stories) but new breakthroughs could lead to a reality for this technology.
