super-rail-quantum-levitationAlthough it has been around for a while now, quantum levitation is always interesting to observe. Researchers from Tel-Aviv University recently exhibited their Quantum Levitation project at the ASTC Annual Conference. The project involves usage of superconductivity which enables materials to become strongly diamagnetic – a property which allows them to create an equally opposing… »

mit-hydrogen-producing-algae-1Many kinds of algae and cyanobacteria are capable to use the energy from sunlight in order to produce compounds needed for their own survival, and during that process they split water molecules and release hydrogen, which holds promise as a clean and carbon-free fuel for the future. A group of researchers found a way to… »
