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?'
As our environmental conditions change, so must the way we approach certain aspects of life. Agriculture and its annual yield have a lot to do with the weather. As the climate changes, these impacts can be felt by everyone in the region from the farmers themselves to what we're seeing on grocery store shelves. How can we make crops more resilient?'
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?
