Nasa invents "revolutionary" material 1,000 times better than state-of-the art spaceship alloys
 
Quote:

The material has twice the strength, three-and-a-half times the flexibility and more than 1,000 times the durability under stress at high temperatures.
How far away is Unobtainium and how long until I can purchase aftermarket parts made from it?

NASA Alloy GRX-810, an oxide dispersion strengthened (ODS) alloy, can reportedly endure temperatures over 1093C, is more malleable, and can survive more than 1,000 times longer than existing alloys.

The team applied thermodynamic modelling and leveraged Additive Manufacturing to develop the new high-temperature alloy. Using thermodynamic modelling, one of many computational tools discussed within the NASA 2040 Vision Study, the team discovered the optimal alloy composition after only thirty simulations.

They kept going after 30, right, just in case?

The search to find this was interesting in itself: www.youtube.com/results?search_query=rectenna

Apparently 100% efficient solar cells are possible if you treat light as a wave instead of a particle. Who knew?

One of my favorite Youtube 'influencers' on organic CPUs:

Amazing Organic CPUs: Printed at Home ... on your Skin or Paper

Currently tens of Kilohertz clock speed at 800nm. Suitable for low-bandwidth applications. Like displaying your temperature on your forehead?
