New Ultra-Fast Charging Li-Ion Batteries Last for 20 Years

Who likes waiting? None, I’d presume. When it is about waiting for your smartphone to recharge, the wait is even more annoying. However, this could very well change for the better soon enough. Thanks to the efforts of Singaporean researchers, a fresh... 

The Nobel Prizes in Chemistry and Physics Awarded

It’s the greatest honour in it’s respective field. The Nobel Prize in each of its five categories is the crowning glory of a career. A couple of days ago the awards for Chemistry and Physics were given out. CHEMISTRY Eric Betzig of the Howard... 

Researchers Discover A Way To Turn Cigarette Butts Into Clean Energy

Cigarette Butts are one of the most common pollutants found on earth. During beach and urban clean up drives, thousands of the tiny buggers are scooped up. 5.6 trillion cigarette butts are dumped onto mother earth each year, they also take three years... 

Scientists Have Developed a Material So Dark That You Can’t See It

If you’ve ever been fortunate enough to peer in to the inky blackness of the sky and catch a sneak peek at a black hole you’ll know that you can’t ‘see’ it in the conventional sense. Since everything that wades in to the...

Micro-Machines To Start Making Medicine Inside Our Bodies

We have all seen nanotechnology in movies and television shows over the years, from the nanoprobes in Star Trek to the Nanomites in G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra. Now these are some examples of nefarious uses of nano tech but a group of scientists from... 

Silicene May Be The Next Best Thing After Graphene

When Graphene was discovered a few years ago it was hailed as the next big thing for the manufacturing of computing and electrical devices, mainly because of its single atom layer of Carbon that is known as the ‘most conductive material in the entire...
