Hydrogen storage in Graphene Origami nanoboxes - 1 views

  •  
    A total storage of 9.5 wt% H2 could be reached which is above the 7.5wt% set by the DoE for market requirements of hydrogen vehicles. The nanoboxes can be opened and closed using electric fields.

Bionic plants: Nanotechnology could turn shrubbery into supercharged energy producers -... - 1 views

  •  
    Plants have many valuable functions: They provide food and fuel, release the oxygen that we breathe, and add beauty to our surroundings. Now, researchers wants to make plants even more useful by augmenting them with nanomaterials that could enhance their energy production and give them completely new functions, such as monitoring environmental pollutants.

Self-assembly of nano-rotors - 1 views

  • the coveted dream of using self-organization effects in such a way that nano machines assemble themselves is still a thing of the future.

    The rotors developed in Garching are an important step in this direction.

    this is the podcast I was listening to ...

    We can do it in nine :)
  •  
    why wait then?
  •  
    hmm, wonder how easy it is to get funding for that, 25k is a bit steep for 10weeks :)
  •  
    well, we wait for the same fundings they get and then we will do it in nine.... as we say in Rome "a mettece un cartello so bboni tutti". (italian check for Juxi)
  •  
    and what you think about the project subjects?
  •  
    I like the fact that there are quite a lot of space projects .... and these are not even bad in my view:
    The space project teams have developed imaginative new solutions for space and spinoffs for Earth. The AISynBio project team is working with leading NASA scientists to design bioengineered organisms that can use available resources to mitigate harsh living environments (such as lack of air, water, food, energy, atmosphere, and gravity) - on an asteroid, for example, and also on Earth .

    The SpaceBio Labs team plans to develop methods for doing low-cost biological research in space, such as 3D tissue engineering and protein crystallization.

    The Made in Space team plans to bring 3D printing to space to make space exploration cheaper, more reliable, and fail-safe ("send the bits, not the atoms"). For example, they hope to replace some of the $1 billion worth of spare parts and tools that are on the International Space Station.

    and all in only a three months summer graduate program!! that is impressive. God I feel so stupid!!!
  •  
    well, most good ideas probably take only a second to be formulated, it's the details that take years :-)
  •  
    I do not think the point of the SU is to formulate new ideas (infact there is nothing new in the projects chosen). Their mission is to build and maintain a network of contacts among who they believe will be the 'future leaders' of space ... very similar to our beloved ISU.
