New nanotechnology developed enables electric current generation using different organs inside the human body without harming it. This technology has potential in the field of medicine, particularly on pacemakers, eliminating the need for batteries.
Earth-sized electric generator, also known as the atmospheric dynamo, is located 50 miles (80 kilometers) above the surface churning current humans know so little about. NASA scientists are set to send dynamo missions to understand how it generates electricity in the ionosphere.
Scientists believe that humans are near the new paradigm for nuclear power. They think nuclear batteries could help in decarbonizing the world’s electricity systems to avoid catastrophic effects brought by climate change.
According to Guinness World Records, Jackson Oswalt, now 15 years old, is officially recognized as the youngest person ever to build a nuclear fusion reactor. Jackson completed the incredible feat when he was only 12.
Soil bacteria may be a new source of energy soon. Scientists discover the specific functions of an electron-producing species like its nanowires, enabling the bacteria to send electrons over long distances.
