Liquid metal feeds Stanford’s new high-voltage flow battery

Engineers at Stanford have developed a new type of flow battery using a metal mixture that ...

Flow batteries have the potential to help store energy on a large scale, and might be particularly useful to back up renewable sources, but there are a few issues still to overcome. Engineers at Stanford have developed a new type of flow battery that might be scalable, safe, efficient and inexpensive, using a metal mixture that remains liquid at room temperature.

Infrared images peek through the clouds of Saturn’s mysterious moon Titan

NASA has released six new infrared images of Saturn's moon Titan, which show off some of ...

Saturn's moon Titan is one of the most interesting bodies in the solar system – but not in the visible spectrum. Under normal lighting conditions, the moon just looks like a dull, featureless yellow ball, thanks to a soupy atmosphere. Now, using 13 years' worth of infrared data from Cassini, astronomers have stitched together the clearest images yet of Titan's surface.

Electronic stickers to step up Internet of Things expansion

Electronic stickers can turn ordinary toy blocks into high-tech sensors connected to the

The Internet of Things promises convenience, marked improvements in efficiencies, and huge economic benefits, but for such visions to be realized the number of physical devices being integrated with the digital world needs to continue increasing. But limiting the expansion, and ultimate ubiquity, of this technology has been the cost, power and size of the enabling electronics – all things that have been addressed by a new fabrication method.
