3D Printers to Begin Printing in Graphene

Posted on September 18, 2015 at 1:10 PM Comments comments (0)

In 2010, two scientists received the Nobel Prize in Physics for the discovery of a new material.  Six years earlier they used adhesive to lift a layer of carbon from a block of graphite and then placed it layer on a silicon wafer, creating "graphene."  Graphene is essentially a two dimensional layer of carbon having amazing physical properties. It is 200 times stronger than steel and carries 1000 times the electrical current of copper having the same density, yet it is transparent and flexible.  

In 2014, the Chinese built the world's largest 3D printer in the hopes of constructing buildings out of a graphene and fiberglass matrix of sorts.  Others are expected to follow suit, revolutioning the world of 3D printing.  CLICK HERE FOR ARTICLE

NASA Developing its First Warp Drive

Posted on September 16, 2015 at 10:20 AM Comments comments (0)

NASA has been wrestling with the time constraints of space travel for years but recently a physicist by the name of Miguel Alcubierre came up a concept that may make deep space travel a reality.  Alcubierre's theory involves a "space bubble" that can travel faster than the speed of light while the ship inside remains stationary.  This bubble contracts spacetime in front of the ship and expands it behind it. The energy required to create this bubble would be enormous; however, Sonny White of NASA’s Johnson Space Center believes that these energy requirements would be greatly reduced if the ring is formed in the shape of a donut.  Prototype warp engines are now being built and recent testing suggests that the warp speed travel might actually be feasible.  CLICK HERE FOR FULL ARTICLE



Newly Patented Devices Uses Heat & Ionized Air to Protect Against Shockwaves

Posted on August 15, 2015 at 10:15 AM Comments comments (0)

A newly patented devices suggest the use of heat and ionized air to protect troops against the shockwaves generated by explosions.  The patent suggests placement of arc generators on the exterior of vehicles along with a sensor to detect an inbound sock wave.  The generators woudl create a large arc of electricity to heat and ionize the air, deflecting the shock wave.  CLICK HERE FOR FULL ARTICLE

Canadian Company Creates Invisibility Cloak

Posted on November 20, 2014 at 10:20 AM Comments comments (0)

A Canadian business called the Hyperstealth Technology Company has recently revealed their "quantum stealth" technology.  Camouflage with this detail is extraordinary and the company has elected to hold this invention as a trade secret rather than patent it.  It is not surprising that such a revolutionary invention would be held as a trade secret; a patent would allow the company to capitalize on its work only for a designated period of time while a trade secret can be held indefinitely.  CLICK HERE FOR FULL ARTICLE
