New Discovery Could Unlock Graphene's Full Potential
 
04:39
It's time for an update on graphene, that super material of the future! Scientists have come up with some new ways of making it that are easier and cheaper than ever before. Charge Your Cell Phone In 5 Seconds - https://youtu.be/ZwiTIzkF4cw Sign Up For The Seeker Newsletter Here - http://bit.ly/1UO1PxI Read More: The Story of Graphene http://www.graphene.manchester.ac.uk/explore/the-story-of-graphene/ "Fascination with this material stems from its remarkable physical properties and the potential applications these properties offer for the future. Although scientists knew one atom thick, two-dimensional crystal graphene existed, no-one had worked out how to extract it from graphite." Scientists cook up material 200 times stronger than steel out of soybean oil http://www.abc.net.au/news/2017-01-31/scientists-cook-up-super-strong-graphene-out-of-soybean-oil/8223686 "Many production techniques involve the use of intense heat in a vacuum, and expensive ingredients like high-purity metals and explosive compressed gases. Now a team of Australian scientists has detailed how they turned cheap everyday ingredients into graphene under normal air conditions. They said the research, published today in the journal Nature Communications, may open up a new avenue for the low-cost synthesis of the highly sought-after material." Physicists patent detonation technique to mass-produce graphene https://phys.org/news/2017-01-physicists-patent-detonation-technique-mass-produce.html "Forget chemicals, catalysts and expensive machinery-a Kansas State University team of physicists has discovered a way to mass-produce graphene with three ingredients: hydrocarbon gas, oxygen and a spark plug. Their method is simple: Fill a chamber with acetylene or ethylene gas and oxygen. Use a vehicle spark plug to create a contained detonation. Collect the graphene that forms afterward." ____________________ DNews is dedicated to satisfying your curiosity and to bringing you mind-bending stories & perspectives you won't find anywhere else!

They're non-toxic, non-corrosive and could significantly reduce the cost of production." Lithium-Ion Battery Inventor Introduces Fast-Charging, Noncombustible Batteries http://engr.utexas.edu/news/8203-goodenough-batteries "A team of engineers led by 94-year-old John Goodenough, professor in the Cockrell School of Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin and co-inventor of the lithium-ion battery, has developed the first all-solid-state battery cells that could lead to safer, faster-charging, longer-lasting rechargeable batteries for handheld mobile devices, electric cars and stationary energy storage." BU-204: How do Lithium Batteries Work? http://batteryuniversity.com/learn/article/lithium_based_batteries "Lithium is the lightest of all metals, has the greatest electrochemical potential and provides the largest specific energy per weight. Rechargeable batteries with lithium metal on the anode could provide extraordinarily high energy densities; however, it was discovered in the mid-1980s that cycling produced unwanted dendrites on the anode. These growth particles penetrate the separator and cause an electrical short. The cell temperature would rise quickly and approach the melting point of lithium, causing thermal runaway, also known as 'venting with flame.'" Has lithium-battery genius John Goodenough done it again? Colleagues are skeptical https://qz.com/929794/has-lithium-battery-genius-john-goodenough-done-it-again-colleagues-are-skeptical/ "Researchers have struggled for decades to safely use powerful-but flammable-lithium metal in a battery. Now John Goodenough, the 94-year-old father of the lithium-ion battery, is claiming a novel solution as a blockbuster advance. If it proves out, the invention could allow electric cars to compete with conventional vehicles on sticker price. The improbable solution, described in a new paper from Goodenough and three co-authors, has drawn intense interest from leading science and technology publications." ____________________ Seeker inspires us to see the world through the lens of science and evokes a sense of curiosity, optimism and adventure.

More precise measurements of this emitted light could unearth clues that might finally help solve the mystery of why there is so much less antimatter than normal matter in the universe, researchers say." Antimatter https://home.cern/topics/antimatter "Dirac interpreted the equation to mean that for every particle there exists a corresponding antiparticle, exactly matching the particle but with opposite charge. For the electron there should be an "antielectron", for example, identical in every way but with a positive electric charge. The insight opened the possibility of entire galaxies and universes made of antimatter." Physicists have observed the light spectrum of antimatter for first time http://www.sciencealert.com/physicists-have-observed-the-light-spectrum-of-antimatter-for-first-time "After two decades of trying, physicists at CERN have reported the first ever measurement of the light emitted by an antimatter atom, revealing that antihydrogen is the exact mirror image of regular hydrogen. The result, which finally confirms what has long been predicted by the laws of physics, opens up a new way of testing Einstein's special theory of relativity, and could help us answer one of the biggest mysteries in modern physics - why is there so much more regular matter than antimatter in the Universe?" ____________________ Seeker inspires us to see the world through the lens of science and evokes a sense of curiosity, optimism and adventure.

The source of their fascination, and no little excitement, was light. Not the sunlight that made the snow glint on the mountains in the Aosta valley, but light inside the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) across the border near Geneva. The machine had detected more photons than expected as it smashed particles beneath the quiet Swiss countryside.

How to Tell a Lie http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/you-illuminated/200908/how-tell-lie "As a culture, we laud truth-tellers. From an early age we're taught to revere two of our most noteworthy presidents, Honest Abe and George Washington, who could not tell a lie. What does it indicate, though, when the well-known story about the first US president coming clean after cutting down his father's cherry tree is nothing more than fiction, a bold-faced lie?" How to Tell a Lie Without Being Caught http://m.wikihow.com/Tell-a-Lie-Without-Being-Caught "Ever needed to tell a little white lie to spare somebody's feelings?

Indeed, the metallic properties of uranium appear to be intermediate between those of silver and other true metals and those of the nonmetallic elements, so that it is not valued for structural applications.” About Nuclear Fuel Cycle https://infcis.iaea.org/NFCIS/About.cshtml “Nuclear Fuel Cycle can be defined as the set of processes to make use of nuclear materials and to return it to normal state. It starts with the mining of unused nuclear materials from the nature and ends with the safe disposal of used nuclear material in the nature.” Nuclear Fuel Processes http://www.nei.org/Knowledge-Center/Nuclear-Fuel-Processes “Nuclear power plants do not burn any fuel.

" Radioactive Waste Management http://www.world-nuclear.org/info/Nuclear-Fuel-Cycle/Nuclear-Wastes/Radioactive-Waste-Management/ "All parts of the nuclear fuel cycle produce some radioactive waste (radwaste) and the relatively modest cost of managing and disposing of this is part of the electricity cost, i.e. it is internalised and paid for by the electricity consumers."

An independent review board set up by Nasa to ensure oversight concluded that there are “no small” problems on a beast of this size.” The James Webb Space Telescope https://jwst.nasa.gov/about.html “Webb will be the premier observatory of the next decade, serving thousands of astronomers worldwide. It will study every phase in the history of our Universe, ranging from the first luminous glows after the Big Bang, to the formation of solar systems capable of supporting life on planets like Earth, to the evolution of our own Solar System.” ____________________ Elements is more than just a science show.
