Every now and then, it’s nice to look at the world around us and imagine what it could be like in the future! The intersection of science, technology, and urban planning is responsible for many things we take for granted, like highways, power grids, sanitation services and beyond. As our population grows, so will our needs. This is why scientists are spending a lot of time asking today's big question: What could cities of the future look like?
When covering science stories, we try our hardest to find good material. Well, sometimes we end up finding great material…and sometimes it happens to be eco-friendly, waste reducing, and life enhancing! For this week's article, let''s check out some big stuff that''s happening in the world of new eco-friendly materials - made with fungus! Can mushrooms make eco-friendly bricks?'
Billions of people get around every single day using all kinds of transportation. To move the most people at once, we still rely on the conventional trains, planes, and automobiles, but all that could change, thanks to new innovations in the transportation technology industry. Every day researchers and scientists are looking for ways to develop new 21st century options for how we move around. A lot of people working in this field are always asking themselves one big question: What's the next big transportation upgrade?'
Science is always working on new ways to make our world a better place to live. The pursuit for better materials is something that many scientists take quite seriously. Recently, some researchers found a way to make something smaller while making it much stronger. How do scientists make stronger materials?
There are a lot of concerns over technology taking human jobs, but in many cases, technology can actually help humans be better at their jobs. One quick example is drone technology used for disaster and emergency rescues. This technology has already been used to help find earthquake and hurricane survivors that are trapped or isolated in places that we can’t easily see, but now drones are also being used to save lives at the beach!
