Evolution has dictated that the brain, the control center for the entire body, be encased in a hard shell and subsequent sets of membranes to protect it. Unfortunately, this makes researching an active, living brain absurdly challenging. New developments in polymer technologies have allowed researchers to create multifunctional fibres no […]

Sunlight is a great energy source that researchers are attempting to harness through artificial photosynthesis. Image Source: Flickr User: Brian Tomlinson Sunlight drives seemingly impossible chemical reactions in plants. Carbon dioxide and water spontaneously react during photosynthesis to produce sugar and oxygen. Scientists have attempted to artificially replicate this process, […]
