It is extremely durable, it combines the best properties of metals and ceramics and can fly into space. Scientists from Łukasiewicz - Poznań Institute of Technology have just developed a new, cheaper and faster method of producing the so-called MAX phase material.
In warmer climates, in the course of evolution birds lengthen their legs and beaks and, in a separate process, reduce body size. Scientists from Poland and Australia investigated the interdependencies between these mechanisms on 99.7% species of birds.
‘During my research, I saw that the services were interested in cracking solutions developed thanks to quantum cryptography. This is because if these solutions fall into the hands of terrorists, monitoring them will become impossible,’ says Professor Artur Ekert, co-founder of quantum cryptography.
Polish researchers have described a method for rejuvenating the brain of old mice. They showed that if the breakdown of glycogen in the brain is sufficiently slowed down, old mice are ready to absorb new information, and the connections in their brain look like those of juvenile mice.
