Nanotechnology experiments could lead to more spectacular firework displays

Recent experiments to create a fast-reacting explosive by concocting it at the nanoscopic level could result in more spectacular firework displays. But more impressively, the method used to mix chemicals at that tiny scale could lead to new strong porous materials for high temperature applications, from thermal insulation in jet engines to industrial chemical reactors.

$6 million funding towards developing self-healing circuits

One novel way around the problem of failing computer chips is a so-called 'self-healing' circuit - one that can detect, isolate, and fix its own flaws, both by working around the defective transistors by modifying the properties of the rest of the system and introducing additional transistors into the system in a seamless fashion.
