    The Next Generation of Nanobionic Light-Emitting Plants

    Lead image: Using specialized nanoparticles embedded in plant leaves, MIT engineers have created a novel light-emitting plant that can be charged by an LED. In this image, the green parts are the nanoparticles that have been aggregated on the surface of spongy mesophyll tissue within the plant leaves. Credit: Courtesy of the researchers Using nanoparticles that store and gradually release light, engineers create light-emitting plants that can be charged repeatedly. Using specialized nanoparticles embedded in plant leaves, MIT engineers have created a light-emitting plant that can be charged by an LED. After 10 seconds of charging, plants glow brightly for…

    A New Approach for Recycling Plastics

    Each human being uses, on average, 30 kg of plastic per year. Given that global life expectancy currently stands at approximately 70 years, each person will discard some two metric tons of plastic in his or her lifetime. Multiply that by the number people on earth – which is growing constantly – and the total is staggering. In light of this, Francesco Stellacci, a full professor and head of the Supramolecular Nanomaterials and Interfaces Laboratory at EPFL’s School of Engineering, began thinking about whether there was a way to solve the problem of used plastics and recycle it more effectively.…

    Kids Eating Fast Food More Often Since Pandemic – Parents Say They’re Too Stressed To Cook

    Lead image: While almost all parents agree that fast food is unhealthy for their children, many also feel it’s OK in moderation. Credit: University of Michigan Health C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital National Poll on Children’s Health. 1 in 5 parents say kids eat fast food more often since COVID pandemic started. 1 in 5 parents say they’re too stressed to cook and 1 in 6 say their child eats fast food at least twice a week. For some families, pandemic times have meant increased screen time, attending class from bedrooms, and maybe even more dinners from a drive through. While…

    Extensive Chemical Composition Mapping Reveals Carbon-Rich, Organic Birth Environments of Planets

    Lead image: This composite image of ALMA data from the young star HD 163296 shows hydrogen cyanide emission laid over an artist’s impression of a starfield. The MAPS project zoomed in on hydrogen cyanide and other organic and inorganic compounds in planet-forming disks to gain a better understanding of the compositions of young planets and how the compositions link to where planets form in a protoplanetary disk. Credit: ALMA (ESO/NAOJ/NRAO)/D. Berry (NRAO), K. Öberg et al (MAPS) Scientists connect the dots between where planets form and what they’re made of. An international collaboration of scientists using the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter…
