New research considers 'growing' drones

Can you chemically "grow" a military drone?

It sounds like an idea for a science fiction film, but UK scientists and engineers are spending time and money to see if they can do exactly that.

British warplanes are already flying with parts made from a 3D printer.

Researchers are already using that same technology to build drones.

The military advantage is obvious - building equipment quickly and close to the battlefield - without long waits and long supply chains - gives you an enormous advantage over any enemy.

Chemical reactions

But the latest innovation being developed by Prof Lee Cronin…

Batman would be 'ill-equipped' say scientists

IF SCIENTISTS are to be believed, Batman would be the “most ill-equipped” superhero of all time.

He might be able to defeat the villains of Gotham with ease in the movies, but according to a recent study by physics students in the UK, the Caped Crusader's physical attributes would make him woefully ill-equipped to glide from buildings in the real world.

According to the study conducted by researchers from the University of Leicester, which measured the scientific aspects of the superpowers of Marvel Comics characters, Batman’s physical appearance would mean that he would simply hit the ground with too much…

In a new publication found in the Astrophysical Journal, Dr. Veslin Kostov, a researcher at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, and his team have announced the discovery of the largest exoplanet to orbit two stars in the constellation Cygnus, Kepler-1647b.

Utilizing NASA’s Kepler Space Telescope, Kostov and his team noticed the exoplanet’s transit back in 2011. Further data…
