People say we're running out of energy. That's only true if we stick with these old 19th century technologies. We are awash in energy from sunlight.

Self-healing electronic chip tests may aid space travel

Self-repairing electronic chips are one step closer, according to a team of US researchers.

 

The group has created a circuit that heals itself when cracked thanks to the release of liquid metal which restores conductivity.

 

The process takes less than an eye blink to bring the circuit back to use.

 

The researchers said that their work could eventually lead to longer-lasting gadgets as well as solving one of the big problems of interplanetary travel.

 

The work was carried out by a team of scientists and engineers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and is published in the journal Advanced Materials.

 

The process works by exploiting the stress that causes the initial damage in the chips to break open tiny reservoirs of a healing material that fills in the resulting gaps, restoring electrical flow.

Dec04 Thanks for your post. Another issue is that to be a photographer etainls not only difficulty in capturing award-winning photographs and also hardships in establishing the best camera suited to your needs and most especially problems in maintaining the grade of your camera. This really is very true and evident for those photography lovers that are in to capturing the actual nature's fascinating scenes : the mountains, the forests, the wild or the seas. Going to these exciting places unquestionably requires a digicam that can meet the wild's hard area. Reply

– I can see how that comes across as cotcraditnory, Sherri. When you take into account my earlier comments regarding the health reasons for why we do not eat a lot of grains perhaps that puts it in a better context. And honestly, we don’t eat these or other almond-based baked goods very often. Maybe once every couple of weeks at the most. And finally (phew I am long-winded), in our homestead planning we do plan on planting fruit and nut trees right away and would most likely have these before a crop of grains. Reply
