On track to commercial extraction of uranium from seawater
Researchers at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory and LCW Supercritical Technologies have created five grams of yellowcake -- a powdered form of uranium used to produce fuel for nuclear power production -- using acrylic fibers to extract it from
Tesla Supercharger Tally Now Exceeds 10,000
The number of individual stalls in the Tesla Supercharging network now exceeds 10,000… several months behind the schedule, but still it's the biggest such network by far in the world.
Strong, Machinable Aerogels Now Commercially Available
Airloys™ are a new class of mechanically robust aerogels with the strength to stand up to real-world applications. In this video, classic silica aerogel is compared with a new material called Airloy X100 which has the low density and superinsulatin
Atom thin magnetic memory
Researchers report that they used stacks of ultrathin materials to exert unprecedented control over the flow of electrons based on the direction of their spins -- where the electron "spins" are analogous to tiny, subatomic magnets. The materials
Radioisotope Positron Propulsion
Current state of the art in-space propulsion systems based on chemical or ion propellants fail to meet requirements of 21st century space missions.
