Will Water Bounce Off Roads And Aeroplanes In The Future?

By Pankaj Mondal

Winter is slowly approaching, bringing with it impending flight ays as ground crews strive to de-ice airplane wings before take-off on very cold winter days. Wouldn’t it be mind blowing if the moisture never had an opportunity to freeze and simply bounced off the surface? In a recent study Swedish scientists at ETH Zürich have […]

Carbon Nanofoam – The World’s Lightest Material

By Tim Sandle

A new material has been developed at University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa physics department. The new material is incredibly light and it has been created from carbon with nanoscale pores and extremely low density. This carbon nanofoam is among the lightest materials ever produced, it may even be in the running for the world’s lightest […]

New Super-Hard Diamond-Like Material Invented

By Tim Sandle

Although diamonds are the hardest known substances on the planet, one weakness with diamonds is that they can oxidise when cutting certain materials at high temperatures (such as iron or nickel). Researchers have been seeking a way to overcome this problem. To do this scientists have been loing at cubic boron nitride. This substance does […]

Hedgehog Robots Rule Microgravity

By Tim Sandle

The Mars Rover Curiosity, and other similar planetary landing craft, have one big design flaw: if they topple over they cannot recover thereby putting billions of dollars of high tech equipment at risk. Such craft do not possess the shape or power to turn themselves the right way up. If the human race wishes to […]

Book About Safe Water Used To Make Clean Water

By Tim Sandle

A remarkable new bo which contains instructions about making clean water, has been produced. It is remarkable not only because it provides information for water safety in areas of the world where clean water is not available, but because it can be used to produce water which contains low numbers of micro-organi. This is achieved […]
