U.S. startup Air Protein has developed a technology that can produce carbon dioxide proteins. It is reported by Meat-Inform.
It is reported that the new technology is based on previous research by American biotechnologists who, in the twentieth century, learned how to make food with the help of bacteria that feed on carbon dioxide and are able to turn carbon into valuable food components.
The developers hope that their invention will be useful to astronauts, since the manufacture of food products from carbon is quite convenient.
The main idea is that bacteria will process the air that the astronauts exhale into a protein flour-like mixture. Then add water and trace elements to it, which will make the taste of the new substance look like meat.
Also, this product can be suitable for both vegans and vegetarians.
Earlier, "Journalist" reported that scientists have found a way to make the body defeat cancer tumors.
F-Eye UAV Technology has tested an alcohol-powered drone.
Testing of the FY-36 drone on methanol was held in conjunction with the Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics, writes the South China Morning Post.
Today, several companies in the world are developing drones with fuel cells. Most of them use hydrogen as fuel.
The weight of the FY-36 drone, which was tested in China, is 15 kg. The device can carry another 3 kg of payload. The drone is made according to the airplane scheme with the main propeller in the tail. In addition, the device is equipped with two beams on which there are two electric motors with rotors - they are needed for vertical take-off and landing.
F-Eye UAV Technology has already completed more than 15 test flights. In the future, the developers intend to create a larger model of a drone that will carry heavy loads.
The Finnish government has created an introductory online course on artificial intelligence for citizens of the country. Now everyone has access to it as a Christmas present
About it writes The Verge.
In total, the course consists of 6 sections. They describe what artificial intelligence is, what problems it solves and where it is applied. Finland promises to translate the course into all languages of the countries of the European Union. A lecture entitled “Elements of Artificial Intelligence” is available in English, Swedish, Estonian, German and Finnish.
It will be possible to go from anywhere in the world.
In Finland, about 55 thousand citizens have already completed the course. In total, it may take from 5 to 10 hours to study one section. The Finnish government initially developed a course to give citizens an edge in the field of artificial intelligence.
Scientists call such a device a non-invasive way to collect and compile information about your health without leaving your home.
Scientists Joshua Kun and Jan Miller and two participants in the study found that the molecular composition of their urine shows how much they slept, what physical activity they did, how much they consumed alcohol or coffee, and when and how many over-the-counter drugs they took. Urine actually contains a “liquid history” of a person’s eating habits, performing or not performing physical exercises, taking medications, sleeping, and other lifestyle elements. This fluid also contains metabolic indications of more than 600 human diseases, including major killers such as cancer, diabetes, and kidney disease. ”
Scientists hope that their product will be ready in five years.

Plastic is the most used and relevant material at the present stage - thanks to such remarkable properties as resistance to temperature, flexibility, light weight and at the same time high strength, plastic, however, is a real headache when it comes to processing and recycling. Modern methods of its disposal require the use of special toxic substances and complex laboratory work, but the chemical engineering team at Colorado State University came up with the idea of creating a new type of polymer plastic that has the same properties and which is much easier and safer to recycle.

In fact, the present polymer material can be processed indefinitely thanks to an improved polymer structure. Polymers are a special class of materials characterized by long chains of chemical bonds between the so-called monomers - it is this property that allows them to be applicable in a variety of problems. The work of a team of researchers from the University of Colorado includes mainly improving the existing synthetic polymer plastic, developed at the same university in 2015.
However, the first prototype, having relatively low heat resistance and strength, did not enter the final concept of experiments and testing - but now scientists have managed not only to improve these indicators of the polymer material, but also to achieve a significant reduction in its cost, which will positively affect its widespread use .

The next generation of polymers can answer the question of how to properly and rationally recycle plastic and other materials in such a way as not to pollute the planet. That is why the team of specialists at the moment has focused on identifying the most interesting solutions to promote their new polymer plastic formula, which, perhaps, will soon become an excellent replacement for traditional plastic in all its manifestations and forms. It remains only to wait for the final results of the experiment.
