Artificial Leaf Solar Cell: Breakthrough Solar Cell captures CO2 and Sunlight, produces Fuel

Researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago have engineered a potentially game-changing solar cell that cheaply and efficiently converts atmospheric carbon dioxide directly into usable hydrocarbon fuel, using only sunlight for energy. Unlike conventional solar cells, which convert sunlight into electricity that must be stored in heavy batteries, the new device essentially does the … Continue reading “Artificial Leaf Solar Cell: Breakthrough Solar Cell captures CO2 and Sunlight, produces Fuel”

Nanolithia Cathode Battery: New Lithium-Oxygen Battery greatly improves Energy Efficiency, Longevity

Lithium-air batteries are considered highly promising technologies for electric cars and portable electronic devices because of their potential for delivering a high energy output in proportion to their weight. But such batteries have some pretty serious drawbacks: They waste much of the injected energy as heat and degrade relatively quickly. They also require expensive extra … Continue reading “Nanolithia Cathode Battery: New Lithium-Oxygen Battery greatly improves Energy Efficiency, Longevity”

Meet the First Farmers: DNA analyses reveal genetic identities of world’s first farmers

Conducting the first large-scale, genome-wide analyses of ancient human remains from the Near East, an international team led by Harvard Medical School has illuminated the genetic identities and population dynamics of the world’s first farmers. The study reveals three genetically distinct farming populations living in the Near East at the dawn of agriculture 12,000 to … Continue reading “Meet the First Farmers: DNA analyses reveal genetic identities of world’s first farmers”

Solar Impulse 2 Completes Historic Trip Around The World Without A Drop Of Fuel

The experimental zero-fuel aircraft, Solar Impulse 2, has completed the final leg of its global circumnavigation attempt. It is the first circumnavigation of the world by a piloted fixed-wing aircraft using only solar power. The Solar Impulse prototype has already set eight world records, including first solar aeroplane to fly through the night, between two … Continue reading “Solar Impulse 2 Completes Historic Trip Around The World Without A Drop Of Fuel”
