The project is based on the idea of eco-responsible lifestyles and sustainable innovations that enable biodiversity and slow down the massive rural exodus China has experienced over the last decade.
A newly-published study describes how for the first time, scientists have been able to generate more energy through an experiment than was used to initiate nuclear fusion. For more than 50 years,
The Rimac Concept_One's staggering amount of power comes from four sets of electric motors, each of which is fitted above a wheel. Rimac has developed an All-Wheel Torque Vectoring (AWTV) system that
Just as a trunk full of luggage affects your gas mileage on a road trip, the amount of supplies on a spacecraft determines how far and efficiently a spacecraft can travel. In order to reduce the payload
There are two key factors that affect solar cell performance: high optical transparency for good light transmission, and high optical haze for increased scattering, and therefore absorption.
Boeing is working with the United Arab Emirates to make some serious breakthroughs in sustainable aviation biofuel development. The Sustainable Bioenergy Research Consortium (SBRC), affiliated with the
