Not magic, science! Researchers develop system to produce electricity out of air !

Researchers have achieved the seemingly impossible by producing electricity out of thin air. The remarkable system uses an incredibly thin film of protein Nano-wires and a little bit of air, and voila, voltage! Decades ago, scientists discovered an unusual microbe, G. Sulfurreducens, which can not only produce magnetite without oxygen, but it can also make bacterial Nano-wires that conduct electricity. ...

Gravitational Waves Explain How the Universe Avoided Self-Destruction

Why has not the universe destroyed itself as a result of collision with the antimatter ? Gravitational waves will help you find the answer and validate the hypothesis that unknown particles and one-dimensional virtual wires saved it. According to Physical Review Letters, when matter and anti-matter collide, they turn into rays, and the space was not so vast in the ...

Creating “Living Robots” from “African Frog” that Could Destroy Cancer Cells !

Tiny “Living robots” named (Xenobots) have been created from frog embryos and they could be used to destroy cancer cells or remove microplastics from the oceans. They were developed by researchers from Vermont University and Tufts University who adapted stem cells taken from the embryo of the African frog (Xenopus Laevis). The tiny robots can be programmed to perform a ...
