New High-strength Steel Could Help Improve Fuel Efficiency in Automobiles

A new third-generation advanced high-strength steel being developed at Missouri University of Science and Technology is designed to be strong, lightweight, and easy to make. This can help automakers improve fuel efficiency to meet the requirements of the U.S. Department of Transportation CAFE regulations. A high-strength steel being developed at Missouri

Floating Nuclear Power Plant that is Safer and Cheaper

Since nuclear power plants emit no carbon dioxide, they are considered an important component for a greener energy future. A new nuclear power plant promises to be safer, cheaper, and easier to deploy than current plants, but what makes it especially unique is that it will float eight or more

Unseen areas are troublesome for police and first responders: Rooms can harbor dangerous gunmen, while collapsed buildings can conceal survivors. Now Bounce Imaging, founded by an MIT alumnus, is

New Battery Design Cuts Lithium-Ion Battery Cost in Half

By using a battery design that is a hybrid between flow batteries and conventional solid ones, engineers have developed a new manufacturing approach that slices lithium-ion battery cost in half. An advanced manufacturing approach for lithium-ion batteries, developed by researchers at MIT and at a spinoff company called 24M, promises to significantly slash
