One of my Science Future articles went up over on Escape Pod yesterday. Go check it out!
So we already know that carbon nanotubes can detect lung cancer but now it’s looking like we can use it to trap cancer cells in order to better remove them from the body. This method is certainly seems safer than some of the prior theories involving blowing up cancer cells with carbon nanotubes!
Finally! Some new news about Carbon Nanotubes!
New research by MIT scientists suggests that carbon nanotubes — tube-shaped molecules of pure carbon — could be formed into tiny springs capable of storing as much energy, pound for pound, as state-of-the-art lithium-ion batteries, and potentially more durably and reliably.
Found by two cuties from MTI (if the picture is correct). (I knew I should have gone to MIT!)
For those of you who want more of the hard science:
Yes my friends new news regarding carbon nanotubes! Now they can produce electrcity!
This isn’t just some new invention on the old ‘turn the turbine’ thing. This is a completely new way of generating electricity according to MIT.
That’s seriously revolutionary folks.
