Iron nanorobots go undercover to do surveillance on living cells in real time

Labeled cells could be tracked either in cell cultures or once injected into a living animal. Living cells inside the body could be placed under surveillance—their location and migration noninvasively tracked in real time over many days—...

Carbon nanotube film produces aerospace-grade composites with no need for huge ovens or autoclaves

MIT postdoc Jeonyoo Lee. Credit: Melanie Gonick, MIT A modern airplane's fuselage is made from multiple sheets of different composite materials, like so many layers in a phyllo-dough pastry. Once these layers are stacked and molded into the...
