The Most Powerful Weapons Ever Made

Humans are the most innovative species that the Earth has ever seen. Our invention of various technologies has allowed us to dominate the planet in every aspect, and today we are virtually in control of almost everything that happens across the world.

Part of the reason our technology has advanced so quickly in a relatively short amount of time is due to our seemingly endless desire for conflict.

Data Centres And How They Work

Most people at home have more than a few devices that are able to connect to the internet. When a device makes a request for a website to be loaded, that information comes from a server. Servers can be home-built and only consist of a few components, but this isn’t enough to power the world’s traffic.

Instead, we rely on massive data centres, warehouse-like buildings that are packed with hundreds of servers at once, all working together to serve the general population’s internet requirements.

Why Artificial Photosynthesis Can Be A Renewable Energy Source

The brand-new gold rush in the digital world is all about renewable energy. However, more than that, it is about making this energy reliable. This means that finding ways to not just generate it but to store it when it is not required and release it when it is necessary.

Sustainable Building Materials Of The Future

The way we build most of today’s buildings is not sustainable in almost every way. In fact, experts believe that the production of conventional cement is among the worst emitters of greenhouse gases, and as cities grow larger with every passing year, it’s become more necessary than ever to find ways of cutting down on how many emissions are being released into the atmosphere.

Unusual Sources Of Renewable Energy

With the oil and coal industry making unprecedented losses, there’s never been a better time for renewable energy to take over and begin providing electricity to the masses.

There are a lot of different projects on the go across the world, including hydroelectricity, solar farms, wind turbines, and even ocean wind generation. But scientists have long speculated that there are a number of unique and unusual methods that can be utilised to start producing power.

A Simple Guide To Rain Catchment At Home

More and more regions around the world are suffering from water shortages. It’s believed that due to the changing climate of the planet combined with the constant draw on fresh water by most large industries, potable water will not always be as abundant as it is now.

This isn’t to say that water will simply disappear, but rather that it will be increasingly difficult for officials to provide enough water for most people.

Solar Arrays And How They’re Built

Solar arrays are a collection of solar panels and other devices connected together with the aim of using the power of the sun to generate electricity. As the oil industry has entered a long decline, and renewable energies have skyrocketed in popularity, more and more countries around the world are adopting solar as the next big shift in generating the power necessary to keep global industries going.

How To Remove Carbon From The Atmosphere

In terms of climate change, one of the biggest problems that the human race faces right now is the amount of carbon dioxide that’s in the atmosphere.

Carbon dioxide release is a natural part of the earth’s cycle; there are thousands of processes occurring every year that release carbon, and for the most part, the planet has plenty of ways of scrubbing it back down.
