VEM is the Modern Fire Extinguisher for Space

VEM is the Modern Fire Extinguisher for Space

Researchers from the Toyohashi University of Technology has come up with a new technique, called Vacuum Extinguish Method (VEM), for a novel fire extinguisher in space. The basic idea of VEM is completely opposite to what we get with standard fire extinguishers, which spray different extinguishing agents into the firing point. It uses a vacuum…

Bacteria can Manufacture High-Performance Proteins, like Spider Silk, for Space Missions

Researchers developed a new technique that could produce difficult-to-make proteins, like spider silk, by taking advantage of engineered bacteria. The mechanical properties of some of the natural, protein-based substances put them in the same bracket as the best synthetic materials. The research presented at the American Chemical Society (ACS) on 2nd April 2019 explained that…
