14.04.2010 Tiny electrical current harnessed from plants
In an electrifying first, Stanford scientists have plugged into algae cells and harnessed a tiny electrical current. They found it at the very source of energy production
18.02.2010 Cargo carrier of the cells is life"s smallest motor
Life's smallest motor, a protein that shuttles cargo within cells and helps cells divide, does so by rocking up and down like a seesaw, according to research conducted by scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and Brandeis University.
17.03.2010 Hydrogen Storage Issues Could Be Solved By Layered Graphene Sheets
Graphene - carbon formed into sheets a single atom thick - now appears to be a promising base material for capturing hydrogen, according to recent research at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the University of Pennsylvania. The findings suggest stacks of graphene layers could potentially store hydrogen safely for use in fuel cells and other applications.

21.04.2010 MIT’s Technology Review Identifies Ten Technologies Poised to Change the World
The editors of Technology Review, MIT’s magazine of innovation, have announced their annual list of the 10 emerging technologies that will soon have a profound impact on how we live and work. These innovations — each represented by a researcher whose vision and work is driving the field — promise fundamental shifts in areas from energy to health care, computing to communications. Each TR10 winner is drawn from the editors’ coverage of key fields, and is based on a simple question: is the technology likely to change the world?
