Astronauts Could Soon Make 3D Printable Food and Tools in Mars

Astronauts Could Soon Make 3D Printable Food and Tools in Mars

A group of Danish researchers are working on a synthetic biology project called CosmoCrops that uses space bacteria for 3D printing everything needed for a convenient space mission. The team has designed a special bioreactor and bioengineered bacteria that can produce everything that astronauts need in space, from screwdrivers to hamburgers. These bacteria are genetically […]

A Reactor That Produces Methanol from Methane at Room Temperature and Pressure!

A Reactor That Produces Methanol from Methane

Scientists at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory have created a reactor that produces methanol from methane at room temperature and pressure. This reactor is the first of its kind in the world as it is made using the combination of two technologies –3D printing technology and biology. The research team removed enzymes from methanotrophs (methane-eating bacteria) […]
