Scientists at the United State's National Ignition Facility (NIF) are currently working on unlocking the key to nuclear fusion power by zapping atoms with giant lasers - and the project just got a major
Iceland is well know for its use of renewable energy, particularly geothermal energy, but soon the country could be combating climate change in a very different, but equally innovative way. Sometime this
Portuguese designer Alan Monteiro has illustrated his vision of green transportation: an aerodynamic carbon swallowing, wastewater recycling, oxygen releasing, unmanned shuttle bus concept called SKhy.
Designer Michal Jelinek recently put together a series of concept vehicles for use on ice. We particularly like this one, called Black Ice, which is a fuel cell turbine-powered glider. Hydrogen fuel cells
There may finally be a way to power your car forever -- the only catch is that the fuel would be radioactive. Charles Stevens of Laser Power Systems (LPS) is working on creating an emissions free
Hands if you want to be cremated when you die! If you put your hand up, shame on you. Did you not know that cremation can result in nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide, particulate matter,
Just one dead fish sitting in the hot sun does not make for a pleasant smell, but imagine the stench from hundreds of thousands of dead fish spread out over 60 miles baking in 90 degree heat. Thanks to a
A magnitude 5.9 earthquake just hit Mineral, VA, sending shockwaves up and down the East Coast of the United States that evacuated the Capital Building, the White House, and the Pentagon in Washington,
Raw sewage stinks, but did you know it is actually a hot commodity? Gaseous wastewater has the potential to be converted into energy-packed biofuel, powering city facilities worldwide. Soon, that noxious
Mercedes has been using a fleet of 36 hydrogen fuel cell buses in Hamburg, Germany, to improve fuel cell technology for its passenger cars. Now those test buses have logged an amazing 2 million
The competition called for the hangar to be a "single structure with a clearance of 100 meters wide by 300 meters long and 100 meters in height to house the production and storage of a zeppelin." The
When it comes to next-gen super materials, graphene is incredible stuff - it can be six times lighter than steel, two times harder, and 10 times stronger in terms of tensile strength - and now researchers
Take advantage of the sun this summer and deck yourself out in some stylish wears that also soak up the solar rays for energy. No power outlets necessary, here are seven solar-powered wearables ranging
In a new study released this week, it was revealed that among the 1.2 million residents living in parts of Appalachia, an additional 60,000 cases of cancer are directly linked to mountaintop removal
The Fukushima Nuclear disaster could affect more people’s health than Chernobyl according to Chris Busby, a chemical physicist who specializes in nuclear radiation. In a recent interview with Asia
The project is anchored by an artificial oval island, where sculpted resort towers connect to an underwater hall that provides fascinating views of the sea world. Jetties feed 80 floating houses called
Space Shuttle Atlantis made its final landing today at the Kennedy Space Center in Orlando, Florida officially marking the end of NASA's 30 year-long space shuttle program that included 5 vessels, 135
Much is being done to increase the range of electric vehicles, from improved lithium ion batteries to reducing the chassis weight. However, Japanese company Sumitomo Electric Industries (SEI) have
On July 21st, at approximately 6:00AM, the Space Shuttle Atlantis will land signaling the end of NASA's 30 year-long Space Shuttle Program. During its 30 year run, the world has seen the five shuttles
A special task force of the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission, brought together after the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster in Japan, has just released their recommendations for the continued production
The US Navy is currently testing a microbial fuel cell powered underwater device that, instead of harvesting electricity from microbial cell growth like most microbial fuel cell devices, harvests gas and
Attendees of this year's Paris Air Show got to see history being made as the mighty micro Cri-Cri broke the electric plane speed record. The plane first took to the skies last September and drew in a
Self-powered laptops and everlasting batteries could soon become a reality thanks to a new study from the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology that measured a piezoelectric film's capacity for turning
Holy environmentalism Batman! Considering the Dark Knight has a personal fortune of $7 billion, you would think that Bruce Wayne would have made a greener version of the Batmobile a long time ago.
South of downtown Seattle is an old Boeing airplane assembly plant that produced nearly 7000 Flying Fortresses while hidden beneath a roof with a fake suburban neighborhood on top. The site is now the
Before the official opening of the Paris Air Show, Airbus parent company EADS revealed what it has in the works to be the successor to the Concorde jet: the Zero Emission Hypersonic Transportation plane,
