A Cancer Fighting Tech Is Being Used To Make Micro Rocket Engines

Earth's orbit is filled with dozens of mobile phone sized nanosatellites. They are used for a wide range of stuff from student research to top secret projects by the government. The problem is, getting them into the correct position in space is difficult.
They're carried into orbit by larger rockets, but they don't always end up where they're supposed to be. The scientists over at Michigan Tech have discovered a tech used for cancer treatment that could provide a solution for this.
The team at Michigan Tech have been researching a liquid called ferrofluid. They have magnetic nanoparticles that move when presented with magnetic force. Because this is natural, they are inexpensive to work with. A research team at the University of Sydney had already been using ferrofluids to treat liver cancer. The two teams worked together and discovered that it could be used as a solution for the micro rocket problem.
Michigan tech found that sharp tips in the liquid needed for thrust would regenerate if damaged, and when they turned up the voltage too high, the tips of the ferrofluids exploded. After the explosion, the fluid re-organized itself and began to form tips.
The scientists at Michigan Tech are confident that this technology will enable them to build a better micro rocket engine, so maybe the next time you launch a tiny satellite up, you'll be using this.
Einstein went through the most recent 30 years of his life attempting to consummate a Unified Field Theory. I, when all is said and done, discovered it incredibly hard to investigate the material for this article in an opportune way. The subject of time or space-time can be a puzzle. As a former architect I think that it's an interesting subject. Quicker than light (FTL) or "Superluminal Communication" as it is generally called, can be accomplished by utilizing Quantum Entanglement. Read more
Whether you follow any local dirt bike championship or a global level championship series, you will find one thing, which is expected – MX graphics. And the reason is simple; they rule the roost and impress the broadest possible audiences. If you closely look at any bike, you will see that people use my graphics all across the cycle, from its tank shrouds/fuel tank, side number plates, airbox, rear fender, front fender, front number plate, fork guards, etc. All these graphics are printed and laminated with the highest quality and push the beauty of a bike.
