Fusion Drive Could Get Astronauts to Mars and Back in a Month

Fusion Drive Could Get Astronauts to Mars and Back in a Month
The problem with exploring our solar system today is that we lack the technology to make voyages between planets quick enough. It’s nearly impossible to visit other planets because of slow propulsion systems that expose astronauts to cosmic radiation and require huge amounts of fuel.

Artist Uses Bacteria to Make Artwork

Artist Uses Bacteria to Make Artwork
Back in my college days, I took microbiology and spent plenty of time in the lab culturing various bacteria. My microbiology professor hated it if we drew patterns or other than random circles or zigzags in our petri dishes.

DARPA Wants Electronics That Melt into the Environment on Command
DARPA is looking for input from companies in the electronics industry, researchers, and other interested parties on technology that sounds like something out of a Mission Impossible movie. No, they don’t want exploding sunglasses or anything like that.

Larry the Vomiting Robot Spews for Science
The norovirus can be nasty. It causes severe diarrhea and vomiting in humans. It is also extremely contagious. You might remember several cases of outbreaks in cruise ships on the news. This virus is estimated to have caused over 90% of epidemic nonbacterial gastroenteritis in the entire world.

Air Force to Launch X-37B Orbital Test Vehicle Today
The United States Air Force has flown its experimental X-37B orbital test vehicle on several occasions. What exactly the spacecraft did while it was in orbit is unknown. What we do know is that in June of this year the spacecraft landed after spending over 15 months in orbit.

Researchers Build Deceptive Robots Based on the Behavior of Hoarding Squirrels

Researchers Build Deceptive Robots Based on the Behavior of Hoarding Squirrels
What do squirrels have in common with the deceptive robots that researchers from the Georgia Institute of Technology developed recently? Apparently, a lot, although that much isn’t obvious at first glance. If you’ve ever seen a squirrel in the process of collecting acorns, then you’ll see that they can get pretty protective and paranoid over their hoard of nuts.

Scientists Claim Five-Year Study Has Yielded DNA Evidence of Bigfoot

Scientists Claim Five-Year Study Has Yielded DNA Evidence of Bigfoot
If you ever watched the 80s flick Harry and the Hendersons, you may wondered if Bigfoot could actually exist. I can’t say one way or another if the mythical Sasquatch is a living creature or nothing more than a figment of the imagination.

“Star Trek” Classroom Uses Multitouch Desks

“Star Trek” Classroom Uses Multitouch Desks
Scientists and researchers around the world are always investigating better ways to help children learn important subjects like math and science. A group of researchers at Durham University has been working for the last three years on a project to design and develop the classroom of the future.

Heroes of Science Action Figures Would Get Their Butts Kicked by G.I. Joe
The heroes of science. They have changed our world. Did they make it a better place? Sometimes. Not the guys who invented the atomic bomb so much. In general though, these eggheads have bettered our world.

Burnt Mouths Could Get Instant Relief with Dissolving Pain Patch

Burnt Mouths Could Get Instant Relief with Dissolving Pain Patch
There’s nothing worse than being so excited to eat your food or sip your coffee that you burn the inside of your mouth. Up until now, the best relief came from a little milk, but that doesn’t last long, and does nothing to help heal the burn either.

Museum’s Ingenious Ad Campaign Will Reignite Your Love for Science
In an attempt to get more people back into science and encourage them to pay a visit to Vancouver’s Science World, the museum put out a series of billboards that present random and interesting factoids to passersby in an extremely creative manner.

Asteroid Dust Cloud Could Be Used to Fix Global Warming

Asteroid Dust Cloud Could Be Used to Fix Global Warming
A group of scientists from Scotland have an insane idea to help reverse the effects of global warming here on Earth. The scientists think they can grab a near-Earth asteroid called 1036 Ganymed and use it to him to create a massive dust cloud to block some of the Sun’s energy from warming the Earth.

3D Indoor Navigation Tech Provides Amazing Accuracy

3D Indoor Navigation Tech Provides Amazing Accuracy
As you probably already know, GPS technology is pretty much useless once you’re inside of a building, so companies are working on ways to provide directional and navigational information while indoors. One very promising technology has been demonstrated by Japan’s National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST).
