Waymo self-driving trucks to start hauling cargo next week
Waymo has clocked up millions of self-driving miles since starting Google's autonomous vehicle project in 2009, celebrating 5 million of them by recently releasing a 360-degree video to demonstrate how its cars see the world around them.
Solar-powered two-seater plane will soar to the edge of space
Solar planes have already traversed the Alps and flown around the world, but one team has its sights set a little higher: the edge of space. SolarStratos is planning to fly a solar-powered plane to an altitude of over 80,000 ft (24,000 m), from where
Hybrid aqueous battery charges up in under 30 seconds
We're so used to having our everyday devices powered by lithium-ion batteries that sometimes it's hard to imagine using anything else. But there are plenty of teams working on alternatives like lithium-air, sodium-ion, lithium-metal and aluminum-ion
Canada begins SMR strategy roadmap
Canada has launched a process to prepare a roadmap to explore the potential of on- and off-grid applications for small modular reactor (SMR) technology. The roadmap will help position Canada to become a global leader in the emerging SMR market, accor
CERN scientists get antimatter ready for its first road trip
Antimatter is notoriously tricky to store and study, thanks to the fact that it will vanish in a burst of energy if it so much as touches regular matter. The CERN lab is one of the only places in the world that can readily produce the stuff, but gett

Coming to a Home Depot near you: Tesla's "invisible" solar roof tiles and home energy storage units will become available this year
Crumpled Graphene balls makes better batteries
With its high theoretical capacity and low electrochemical potential, Li would be the ideal anode for Li-ion batteries. However, practical use of the Li anode has been hindered by its tendency for dendritic growth, which leads to unstable solid elect
Lithium metal electrode batteries
Reversible lithium metal electrode has potential to almost double the energy density of lithium-ion batteries and lower the cost to $100 per kilowatt hour.
