Video: Recycling glass bottles to build better batteries

May 3rd, 2017 | by April Gocha, PhD

Researchers at the University of California, Riverside, have devised a technique to convert recycled glass bottles into nanosilicon anodes for next-gen lithium-ion batteries with the capacity to store almost four times as much energy as conventional anodes.


Cultivating Mars colonization: 3-D printing method uses extraterrestrial soil to build biodegradable parts on site

April 14th, 2017 | by April Gocha, PhD

Researchers at Northwestern University have devised a technique to 3-D print soft rubber-like materials out of ink composed primarily of extraterrestrial soil. Using a biologically derived binder to hold the soil particles together, the team demonstrated that their unique method can 3-D print tools, building blocks, and other structures.
