The Advanced Technology Behind the Massive Dune Universe

In 1965, science fiction author Frank Herbert published Dune, his most famous novel and one of the most influential works of science fiction ever. It inspired multiple generations of writers with its in-depth commentary on human history, sociology, biology, and ecology. It was also the book that (arguably more than any other) taught people to take… Continue reading The Advanced Technology Behind the Massive Dune Universe

Every noble metal atom counts in exhaust catalysts

Valerii Muravev. Credit: Eindhoven University of Technology Modern society heavily relies on transportation. The internal combustion engines that power most vehicles emit gaseous pollutants that are harmful to human health and to the environment. Catalytic removal of toxic carbon monoxide (CO) from exhaust fumes is typically done with expensive noble metals as one of the… Continue reading Every noble metal atom counts in exhaust catalysts

A New Ultra-Adsorbent Material Can Suck Up 20 Times More Uranium Than Rivals

According to the Nuclear Energy Agency, it’s estimated that there are at least four billion tons of uranium in the oceans, which corresponds to about 500 times the amount of uranium known to exist in land-based ores. But mining and extracting that uranium from the sea has been notoriously hard to execute, until now. Linsen… Continue reading A New Ultra-Adsorbent Material Can Suck Up 20 Times More Uranium Than Rivals
