Comments Off on Scientists Pour Water Into Oregon Volcano to Generate Energy

A team of scientists from Seattle-based AltaRock Energy , Inc. and Davenport Newberry Holdings LLC  has announced plans to harness one of Mother Nature’s most powerful energy sources by pumping 24 million gallons of water into the side of a dormant volcano in Central Oregon . The team hopes that the water will return to the surface boiling hot, at which point it can be used to generate clean and cheap energy – without the explosive side effects and liquid magma associated with active volcanoes.

Scientists Train Genetically Modified E. coli Bacteria to Mass Produce Super Strong Spider’s Silk

Comments Off on Scientists Train Genetically Modified E. coli Bacteria to Mass Produce Super Strong Spider’s Silk

Spider’s silk is such an amazing and versatile substance, it’s hard not to get the feeling that Mother Nature intended it for much more than a sticky web in the corner. This seemingly insignificant thread is equal to steel in tensile strength while maintaining the flexibility of rubber. It conducts heat 800 times better than any other organic material, is tougher than Kevlar , and has been used to make everything from violin strings to computer chips . The only problem is, spiders aren’t easy to farm. So until recently, it’s been difficult to harvest enough spider silk to do anything at commercial scale. But what if something else could be taught to produce spider’s silk in mass quantities? Something that loves to reproduce…like bacteria.

Comments Off on The Dirty Truth Behind Pear Packaging – and Why You Should Always Buy Organic

In the age of 24-hour supermarkets and strawberries in December, we’ve become disconnected from the reality of food. Grocery store shelves are always stocked, so we rarely stop to think about where food came from, how it was grown, and why it’s packaged the way it is. Take pears, for instance. They’re often wrapped in bits of tissue paper, but have you ever asked why? A recent investigation by Fast Co. Design revealed the complicated world of pear packing and shipping. After learning the truth about this paper packaging, you’ll want to avoid anything but organically grown pears in the future.
