There are many ways that 3D printers have changed the way the world does things. Applications include rapid prototyping, architectural scale models and maquettes, 3D printed prosthetics and printing with human tissue, as well as film props in entertainment. (more…)
According to researchers at the University of Maryland, “Earth requires fuel to drive plate tectonics, volcanoes, and its magnetic field. Like a hybrid car, Earth taps two sources of energy to run its engine: primordial energy from assembling the planet and nuclear energy from the heat produced during natural radioactive decay. Scientists have developed numerous […]

A long-term collaboration between Stellenbosch University (SU) and global medical technology corporation, Medtronic, has yielded an investment in excess of R120m into healthcare training and education in SA. (more…)
NASA astronaut Kate Rubins has become the first ever person to successfully sequence DNA in space. Kate was aboard the International Space Station (ISS) when she carried out this procedure using the Biomolecule Sequencer. The success of her DNA sequencing in microgravity could have a large impact on future missions to space. Virologist turned astronaut […]
One of the most well-known and widely accepted notions is the 5-second rule, which states that food that has been dropped on the floor can still be consumed if it is picked up within 5 minutes of it falling on the floor. However, a group of scientists from Rutgers University in the US recently disproved […]

The World Health Organisation estimates that there are 235 million around the world currently living with asthma. However, despite being so prevalent globally asthma is still one of the most under-diagnosed medical conditions. A new diagnostic test created by a group of researchers at Loughborough University (UK) could help to change this by creating an […]
