A multi-institutional team of researchers has found that it is possible to use a type of fungus to soften wood to the point that it could be used to generate electricity.
3D printing technologies have evolved at an unbelievable pace resulting in everything from 3D printed meat, to 3D printed houses to even 3D printed guns. Now, a new study out of the University of Buffalo may just be the key to 3D printed organs.
Printed/flexible sensors offer multiple benefits relative to their more established rigid counterparts, including lower weight, flexibility/conformality, and potentially lower manufacturing costs since printing facilitates high-throughput continuous production methods.
The European Space Agency (ESA) is using microgravity conditions to experiment with "one of the most promising fuels of the future," metal fuels, the agency says in a statement. Space conditions are just right for helping the ESA team to refine the processes needed to efficiently burn solid fuels such as iron powder.
