In Explora. Vision, students choose a current technology and imagine what it could be like in 20 years. As recognition for their outstanding achievement, national finalist team members and their parents/guardians will travel to Washington, D. C. in June for Explora. Vision Awards Weekend. Explora. Vision prizes include: * First Prize (4 teams): U. S. EE Savings Bond worth $10, 000* at maturity for each student. * Second Prize (4 teams): U. S. EE Savings Bond worth $5, 000* at maturity for each student.

Lighter than plastic, stronger than steel! The hardest substance known to man! Click here to see how Buckyballs and nanotubes are made Named after R. Buckminster Fuller, inventor of the geodesic dome, "Bucky. Ball" is the nickname for a Carbon 60 molecule. Like the faces of a soccer ball, it has 20 hexagons and 12 pentagons.
l l l CNT can be metallic or semiconducting and offers amazing possibilities to create future nanoelectronics devices, circuits, and computers. Nanotubes are as hard as diamonds and have the strongest tensile strength known. They Emit light! They Repair Themselves! 2008 trial production of Carbon Nanotube TVs.
Space Elevator Twenty tons of cable and reel would be kicked up to geosynchronous altitude by spacecraft to get the project started. The making of carbon nanotubes is moving very quickly.

Insert new traits Improve qualities Delete Defects / gene silencing Improve agriculture Help World Hunger Human genes in Plants Controversial
Insert new traits Fluorescent gene from a jellyfish inserted into a mouse Hybridizing traits to create transparent frog Scientists Mario R. Capecchi, Oliver Smithies and Sir Martin J. Evans have been named the recipients of the 2007 Nobel Prize in medicine. The three developed a technique called "gene targeting, " which lets scientists deactivate or modify particular genes in mice. That in turn lets them study how those genes affect health and disease.

Wind Power Wave Energy (Pelamis) VOLTS FROM A MECHANICAL SEA SNAKE Pelamis is a segmented cylinder moored at both ends to the ocean floor. As a wave passes down the length of Pelamis, hinged joints on the power conversion modules allow the tubes to move up and down and side to side. The motion of the tubes relative to one another drives pumps that turn generators. The electricity flows via a cable to a shore-based grid. To access high-energy swells, Pelamis is designed for use about five miles offshore. It generates over 2. 5 million k. Wh's of electricity per year, enough to provide power for 150 -200 homes. The same technology will be used to desalinate water or produce hydrogen Solar Power Anti. Matter CERN When matter comes into contact with antimatter it produces an explosion of pure radiation, traveling outwards at the speed of light. Both particles that created the explosion are completely destroyed, leaving behind only other subatomic particles. It's a perfect conversion of mass into energy. It releases about 10 billion time the energy of a chemical reaction and 1000 times more than nuclear fission in a nuclear power plant.
Cloning could offer a key to the fountain of youth, say scientists whose six cloned cows show signs of being younger than their Human Ear grown on a mouse chronological ages. On January 8, 2001, scientists at Advanced Cell Technology, Inc. , announced the birth of the first clone of an endangered animal, a baby bull gaur (a large wild ox from India and southeast Asia) named Noah.
Good News Holdings building the first "green" film and television production studio, and what Good News Holdings expects to be the most modern, user-friendly studio complex in the world. While this $150 M project is still in the early stage, with feasibility studies being conducted, Good News Holdings has created a Delaware based LLC named "Project Julia" (working title) to facilitate progress. David Kirkpatrick receives a lifetime achievement award for films
Cryogenics is a branch of physics (or engineering) that studies the production of very low temperatures (below – 150 °C, – 238 °F or 123 K) and the behavior of materials at those temperatures. Superconductors Magnetic Resonance Imaging Storage and transport breakthroughs Cryonics is freezing living things so they may be brought back to life in the future. This has been successfully done with hamsters. Click Here
Aging can be slowed in laboratory rodents by low-calorie diets, and changes in single genes can extend mouse life span by 40 percent or more. U. S. life expectancy at birth has increased by about 7 years (from 70 to 77) since 1960 Contributing Factors: Diet Happy Marriages Calorie Reduction Nursing Optimism Exercise Faith
