Caps not the culprit in #nanotube chirality #Nanotechnology | Smart devices and technology solutions | Scoop.it
(Phys.org) —A single-walled carbon nanotube grows from the round cap down, so it's logical to think the cap's formation determines what follows. But according to researchers at Rice University, that's not entirely so.

I designed this project for a 10-hour workshop for ChickTech.org whose goal is to introduce teenage women to STEM topics. The goals for this project were: Easy to build. Easy to program. Did something interesting. Low-cost so participants could take it home and continue to learn.With those goals in mind, here were a couple of the design choices: Arduino compatible for ease of programming. 4xAA battery power for cost and availability. Stepper motors for accurate motion. 3D Printed for ease of cus

Is it possible that the growing number of private unicorns could come to head and result in another tech bubble, albeit perhaps not as severe as the last one?  These unicorns have $1 billion+ valuations, but often don't have the revenues to support these valuations.  This infographic makes for an interesting discussion on the possibility of collapsing unicorns, especially if capital flows eventually slow down.
