Mushrooms could solve the war on plastic, says Kew Gardens

Fungi could be the key to winning the war on plastic, leading scientists at Kew Gardens has said. The first ever report on the state of the world’s fungi has today revealed that if the natural properties of fungus can be harnessed and developed, plastic could be broken down naturally in weeks rather than years.

Dozens of ‘Mysterious Radio Bursts’ From Outer Space Are Detected

Dozens of ‘mysterious radio bursts’ from outer space detected by alien-hunting artificial intelligence

AN artificial intelligence program hunting for alien life in the universe has picked up dozens of mysterious radio bursts. The Breakthrough Listen has detected 72 new fast radio bursts (FRBs) coming from a galaxy three billion light years from earth. Scientists have named the source of these signals, way outside the Milky Way galaxy, “repeater” FRB 121102.

Interstellar Travel Breakthrough

Interstellar travel BREAKTHROUGH: New material to ‘speed spacecraft to 134,000,000 mph’

Before man can cross the vast distances of space, the designs of spacecraft’s sails will be key – striking a delicate balance between mass, strength and reflectivity. Working with NASA, California Institute of Technology (Caltech) scientists have created the new material out of silicon and its oxide, silica.
