New ultra-fast 3D printing technology uses resin and light

Researchers with the University of Michigan have developed a new 3D printing technology that is capable of printing 100 times faster than normal 3D printers. Unlike traditional 3D printers, which work by applying plastic down as layers, the new technology involves resin that is solidified upward at rapid speeds. The new method is capable of producing complex objects at traditional …

China grows the first plants on the moon

There is still more to prove. China must show that the plants can continue to grow, and there is no difference between the very varying temperatures and the lower gravity. The lander must make dramatic changes to preserve the conditions of the biosphere and keep its interior relatively consistent. Even with these challenges, this is a significant milestone: it suggests …

GM opponents know the least science, but believe they know the most

A recent study compared public science skills with their attitudes to genetically modified foods. The results showed that "when the resistance increased, objective knowledge went down, but self-assessed knowledge went up." The results also indicate that, in terms of political efforts to increase scientific literacy, the education of a given subject is not even enough. In 1999, social psychologists David …

Bizarre Double Star System twisted its planet plate on its side

Astronomers theorize that when our sun was still young, it was surrounded by a slab of dust and gas from which the planet was eventually formed. It is further theorized that the majority of the stars in our universe are initially surrounded by a "protoplanetic disk", and that in about 30% of cases, these discs will continue to be a …

Looking for former industrial civilizations in the geological record – NextBigFuture.com

Arxiv – If an industrial civilization had existed on earth many millions of years before our own time, what traces would it have left and could they be discovered today? Researchers summarize the assumption of anthropocene's geological fingerprints and show that it will not differ much in many respects from other known events in the geological record. They propose tests …

Strongest opponents of GM Foods Know the least about them

Ignorance in Action Some people are indeed against genetically modified (GM) foods. But how much do these haters actually know about the science of genetic modification? Not as much as they think they do, according to a new study from the University of Colorado. "People are shown on the very low ends of the opposition know where they stand on …
