Earth-Saving Stone Paper with Zero Waste, Part 2 of 2

Another essential feature of the stone paper is its higher resistance to tearing compared to regular pulp paper. This makes it ideal for packing, and for replacing the traditional pulp-based paper bags, which can’t carry much weight and can be reused very few times. These improved bags made of stone paper can be used at trade shows, supermarkets and department stores instead of tree-based paper or plastic bags.

Earth-Saving Stone Paper with Zero Waste, Part 1 of 2

Can you imagine a paper made of stone instead of trees? Stone paper is made of stone particles and non-toxic resin. It produces zero waste and requires no water during its production, and has a much smaller carbon footprint compared to traditional tree-based papers. Stone paper was firstly launched to the market in 2008. Currently, stone paper accounts for 1% of all paper sales globally. When compared with regular pulp paper, stone paper is superior in several ways. For example, it is completely waterproof and has higher resistance to tearing.

Discovering Mars: Exploration, Habitability and other Revelations, part 1 of 2

One possible area for life and human habitats are underground Martian caves. A series of seven openings have been spotted by the Mars Odyssey orbiter. These openings are around 100 to 300 meters wide and could be entrances that lead to underground cave systems 100 meters beneath the surface. Supreme Master Ching Hai once said:” The mass extinction happened 40 million years ago. There were survivors, the first survivors were about 2 million people. And now they have about 5 million, 8 hundred thousand. They live underground.”

Transcending the Limits of Microchip Fabrication:Extreme UV Lithography, Part 2 of 2

In the coming years, the application of microchips will continue to expand, the demand for chips will also continue to grow. However, the traditional 193 nm lithography has reached its limit and must be replaced with its 13.5 nm EUV counterpart. It is generally agreed that EUV lithography is the most difficult technology to perfect in the history of the semiconductor industry — so challenging that it is comparable to NASA’s Moon landing project.

Transcending the Limits of Microchip Fabrication: Extreme UV Lithography, Part 1 of 2

The development of mobile phones has brought great convenience to users. How can such a small device have so many functions? The answer lies in its sophisticated “brain” — a whole collection of microchips. Inside a chip are a large number of densely packed circuit elements, which can contain billions of transistors. The size of each transistor is approximately one thousandth to ten-thousandth of a hair’s breadth. How are these circuits made? The answer is through “microlithography.” On today’s show we’ll introduce the advanced next-generation lithography technology—Extreme UV Lithography.

Advanced Technology for Natural Disaster Detection

Colin Humphreys, a professor of materials science at Cambridge University said: “People have said you can’t predict earthquakes, people have tried. We’re now saying we believe for the first time we can predict an earthquake in a laboratory. The ability for AI to identify low rumblings which get increasingly stronger as a quake approaches could save countless lives”. The scientists involved believe that the earthquake prediction machine shows great potential.

Biomimicry: Nature-inspired Solutions for a Green Future, Part 1 of 2

The central idea of biomimicry is that the strategies nature has adopted have evolved and succeeded over billions of years. These time-tested patterns and approaches have already solved many of the issues that we are addressing today. In 1997, the Shinkansen train nose was changed from the shape of a bullet to something which closely resembles a kingfisher’s beak, then a faster, cleaner and quieter Shinkansen electric train was born. By mimicking the shape of lotus leaves’ surface, one can create a paint for a building that has similar self-cleaning effect.
