Scientists create a self-repairing material from a tiny but mighty natural force
A self-repairing material? Is this a good thing? Furthermore, we can modify the elastic proteins to change the properties of the final material. For example, we could turn bacteria into hard construction materials that have the ability to self-repair in the event of damage. Alternatively, we could turn bacteria into soft materials that could be…
NVIDIA RTX 4090 12VHPWR plug melts and burns during gameplay?
There have been a few reports regarding some meltdowns with the new 4090 cards. Guru 3D does some investigating. I was hoping to link to their story, but the site appears to be having difficulty. I believe that wire bending might be the issue. When the site is back up, here is the link.
Chip can transmit all of the internet’s traffic every second
This is crazy fast! A single computer chip has transmitted a record 1.84 petabits of data per second via a fibre-optic cable – enough bandwidth to download 230 million photographs in that time, and more traffic than travels through the entire internet’s backbone network per second.

California Quakes Mysteriously Preceded by Shifts in Earth’s Magnetic Field
Could there be a more effective way to predict earthquakes? When the next big earthquake strikes somewhere around the world, it will arrive without warning, destroying infrastructure and putting lives at risk. Yet for days leading up to the event, titanic geological forces will already be at work, warping the crust in subtle ways that…
Black hole spews out material years after shredding star
Yikes, I guess it didn’t like the taste! A black hole has been spotted ejecting material three years after consuming a star, in what astronomers are comparing to a cosmic burp. For more, check out this Daily Mail/MSN story.
Train-plane ‘hybrid’ that can go 620 miles per hour
A Canadian company wants to join the fight for better high-speed train travel. Toronto-based TransPod recently unveiled plans for a “FluxJet,” a fully-electric transportation system that’s “a hybrid between an aircraft and a train.” The project, currently in the conceptual stage, would involve 82-foot-long, magnetically levitated trains that would carry passengers at roughly 621 miles…
Scientists think they have found a solution to one of the oldest problems in the universe
If the universe is primarily matter, where did all the anti-matter go? The theory Drs Cui and Zhong-Zh wanted to explore is known as leptogenesis, a process involving particle decay that could have led to the asymmetry between matter and antimatter in the early universe. An asymmetry in certain types of elementary particles in the…

Yamaha And Toyota Team Up To Develop Hydrogen Engines
Hydrogen power is slowly gaining traction. Yamaha and Toyota will team up once more on a project focused on sustainability and performance—two factors that appear to be at odds with one another when it comes to the future of transportation. To that end, Toyota Motor Corporation has given Yamaha Motor a contract to create a…
