Is Our Moon a Hollow Spaceship?

Is Our Moon a Hollow Spaceship? | nmn | Scoop.it

"What in blazes is our moon doing way out there?

 

It's too far out to be a true satellite of Earth, it's too big to have been captured by the earth. The chances of such a capture having been effected and the moon then having taken up a nearly circular orbit about the earth are too small to make such an eventuality credible.

 

But, then, if the moon is neither a true satellite of the earth nor a captured one, what is it?"

Novel bio-inspired method to grow high-quality graphene for high-end electronic devices

Novel bio-inspired method to grow high-quality graphene for high-end electronic devices | nmn | Scoop.it

A team of researchers from the National University of Singapore (NUS), led by Professor Loh Kian Ping, who heads the Department of Chemistry at the NUS Faculty of Science, has successfully developed an innovative one-step method to grow and transfer high-quality graphene on silicon and other stiff substrates, opening up opportunities for graphene to be used in high-value applications that are currently not technologically feasible.
This breakthrough, inspired by how beetles and tree frogs keep their feet attached to submerged leaves, is the first published technique that accomplishes both the growth and transfer steps of graphene on a silicon wafer. This technique enables the technological application of graphene in photonics and electronics, for devices such as optoelectronic modulators, transistors, on-chip biosensors and tunneling barriers.
