Artificial plants developed by scientists at the University of Central Florida (UCF) and Florida State University could help in the fight against climate change. They were able to trigger photosynthesis in metal-organic frameworks (MOF) with a little help from the sun, and the process turned carbon dioxide into solar fuel. UCF assistant professor Fernando Uribe-Romo described the find as a breakthrough.

A group of researchers from the University of Arizona, in collaboration with NASA scientists, have created an innovative inflatable greenhouse to help feed astronauts on other planets. The Prototype Lunar/Mars Greenhouse project would allow astronauts on deep space missions access to healthy, fresh food year-round. The greenhouse is made of an inflatable material and functions as a closed loop, integrated with the astronaut’s life support systems. The carbon dioxide released by the...

German scientists are hoping to shine new light on ways to generate environmentally friendly fuel. At the German Aerospace Center (DLR)'s Institute for Solar Research, scientists have flipped on a system called Synlight, which they describe as the biggest artificial sun on the planet. Synlight is comprised of 149 huge spotlights, pouring out 10,000 times the solar radiation that naturally hits Earth from the real sun.

Some people dismissed 3D-printing in its early days as a novelty, but these days the technology is coming into its own and researchers at MIT have just taken 3d-printing to the next level. They've created a robot that can print the entire basic structure of a building. This is particularly exciting because it could change the way we construct buildings, making the process faster and less costly.
