A team of Israel researchers revealed the 3D printed heart that completely matches the immunological, cellular, biochemical and anatomical properties of a human patient.
This quantum battery is a tiny, nano-size battery meant to be used for applications on the nano scale but the research provides a theoretical demonstration that creating a loss-free quantum battery is possible.
An international team of scientists have found a new compound of plutonium with an unexpected, pentavalent oxidation state This new phase of plutonium is solid and stable, and may be a transient phase in radioactive waste repositories.
This new species, temporarily dubbed Auanema sp., has three different sexes, can survive 500 times the lethal human dose of arsenic, and carries its young inside its body like a kangaroo.
Engineers have cooked up a material made of carbon nanotubes that is 10 times blacker than anything that has previously been reported.
