Know about the new type of Carbon, almost Harder and Brighter like Diamond.

Scientists have designed a new type of carbon that is harder and brighter than naturally formed diamonds. For those who want to wear a one-of-a-kind sparkler on their fingers, the new material, called Q-carbon, also gives off a soft glow. “This new phase is very unique,” said study co-author Jagdish Narayan, a materials scientist at North Carolina State University. “It has novel electrical, optical and magnetic properties.” For instance, the...

Do you know about the Lightest Metal of the World, 99.9 percent air.

How do you build the world’s lightest metal? Make it mainly from air, according to scientists. The material, known as a “microlattice,” was developed by scientists at HRL Laboratories in Malibu, California, which is co-owned by Boeing and General Motors.

The unusual look of Amazon’s delivery drone combines elements of both fixed-wing aircraft

The unusual look of Amazon’s delivery drone combines elements of both fixed-wing aircraft, such as traditional passenger aeroplanes, and rotocraft such as helicopters, in a design that looks like neither. But despite its unusual looks the boxy drone has been designed with the requirements of its door-to-door delivery duty in mind. Rotocraft can take off and land vertically, which will be an essential requirement if the company is to deliver...
