Most Recent Breakthroughs in Science and Engineering

With drone technology becoming popular and widely known, we can notice how far we made it with technology. The thing is that kind of technology was possible even before this decade but in much smaller scale. And with science and engineering contributing to our advancement in technology, we may soon see all sorts of futuristic devices and contraptions. So let’s see what are the latest breakthroughs in science and engineering that will change our lives forever.

Multicellular Life

Scientists found out that a single molecule dating back from 800 million years ago, is responsible for multicellular life. This molecule known as GK-PID can reach out to other chromosomes and pull them onto the inner membrane of a cell creating life. This way cells can replicate without going astray and become cancerous.

Nanotechnology within Reach

You might or might not have heard of this technology before, but the fact is that we will hear about similar topics more often than we, though. Nanotechnology could change our lives forever, bringing mobility to otherwise dysfunctional limbs and much more.There are many uses for nanotechnology in future, and recent advancements in engineering may shed some light on that topic. Not only that we would be able to use suits that would make us invulnerable to anything but we could also use this technology in science creating a new defense mechanism and infusing it with cells in our body. This may sound like a far-fetched SciFy idea, but advancement in cyborg technology proves that we are on the right path of finding out soon whether this is possible or not.

Virtually Unlimited Data Storage

We can notice how devices that were larger in the past decreased in size, and improved functionality is bringing us new options. Microchips are as small as an insect now, and it’s all thanks to recent breakthroughs in technology and science. Scientists have successfully infused nanotechnology with data storage to create devices smaller than a human nail that could carry data for an indefinite period. Writing of the data on such small device is possible with laser technology, and they state that a device like this could store as much as 360TB of space on temperatures over 1000 °C, giving it life for more than 13.8 billion years. Every file is written in three layers of nanostructured dots and the space between them in only 5 micrometers.
