The World’s Leading Carbon Capture Projects

Climate change is the biggest challenge that the human race has ever face, and it’s going to take all of our innovation and technology to avert the worst of what’s to come. One of the largest problems we’re dealing with is excess carbon in the atmosphere, more than our planet is able to successfully pull out.

Carbon is excellent at trapping heat, meaning that more and more heat is being trapped in the atmosphere and causing global temperatures to increase. Scientists and engineers around the world are currently working on projects to try and capture the carbon emissions that we output every year, and there are some truly promising concepts being investigated.

The World’s Leading Supercomputers

When we look at the smartphones that we carry around with us every day, it’s incredibly easy to forget the decades of engineering that went into making them work as smoothly as they do. In fact, they are thousands of times more powerful than the computers that sent the first people to the moon, and if Moore’s Law is to be followed, smartphones will continue to get more and more advanced.

Engineering That Could Revolutionise Farming

The threat posed by climate change cannot be overstated, but even as warnings continue to pour in from scientists, conservationists, the United Nations and others, so engineers are working on possible solutions. Farming contributes approximately a third of greenhouse gas emissions, but thanks to creative engineering, it may be possible to reduce those emissions significantly.

Are Automated Cars Really Our Future?

AI is a major buzzword at the moment. It seems like you can’t glance online without someone trumpeting the incredible advancements seen in the world of AI. On the other hand, the gushing about AI potential is almost routinely followed by naysayers who declare the technology will likely be the end of us all. Both are exaggerations.

The World’s Most Expensive Science Projects

Science has come to dominate the world in the last 100 years, with technological, medical, and cosmic breakthroughs shaping how we live every day. Science, however, is not cheap, and collectively as a species we’ve invested trillions of dollars into a plethora of science experiments in a bid to make the world a better place. In fact, some industries cost the general population and government billions every year, but for the most part, the money is being invested into good causes that could see more major breakthroughs in the future. With that in mind, here are some of the most expensive scientific projects of all time.
