  • Making space rocket fuel from water could drive a power revolution on Earth

    The Conversation , 27th Sep 2016

    Researchers led by NASA’s former chief technologist are hoping to launch a satellite carrying water as the source of its fuel. The team from Cornell University, guided by Mason Peck, want their device to become the first shoebox-sized “CubeSat” to orbit the moon, while demonstrating the potential of water as a source of spacecraft fuel.

  • Optimizing carbon capture

    Materials Today , 13th Sep 2016

    A new, improved approach to making porous carbon materials for sequestering the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide has been devised by researchers at Rice University in Houston, Texas, USA. Rice chemist Andrew Barron and his team have found that the conditions in which such materials are synthesized affects their efficacy as carbon capture agents.
