Solar-Powered Robot Bird Set For Exploration Duties

Thanks to a grant from NASA, University of Missouri-Rolla researchers are developing the world’s first flapping-wing, solar-powered unmanned aircraft. Using thin-film solar arrays and an ionic polymer-metal composite material that can deform in an electric field like an artificial muscle and return to its original shape when the field is removed, the vehicle would be […]

Artificial Proteins Could Help Repair Cells

Johns Hopkins University researchers have created a new class of artificial proteins that can assemble themselves into a gel and encourage the growth of selected cell types. This biomaterial, which can be engineered to send different biological signals to cells, is expected to assist scientists who are developing new ways to repair injured or diseased […]
