Traditionally, we’ve planted almost all of our crops in the ground, usually in loamy soil, and for the most part, it works well. Unfortunately, many years of mono-culture systems has left much of our arable land quickly eroding, losing the nutrients in the top soils that are necessary for the growth of planet life.
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.
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.
Numerous sites around the world prove that people who lived thousands of years ago were skilled engineers, mathematicians, architects, project managers, and construction workers. A list of all the engineering feats of the ancient world would be impossible to complete, because archaeologists continue to make startling discoveries.
With the dawn of a new decade comes a slew of new design trends, and as 2020 kicks into gear, you can be sure that there will be plenty of advancements in the engineering world.
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.
Architecture is a rich playground when it comes to engineering, especially when you consider the era in which certain constructions were created and the knowledge and materials that were available to designers then.
It has now become somewhat trendy to recognise Nikola Tesla, with many groups eagerly gathering around to declare him as one of the most overlooked figures in history. Indeed, it is true that Nikola Tesla was overlooked, having been a key figure in many extremely important scientific developments, and receiving little credit.
Social engineers are attackers who utilise the one weakness found in every organisation, simple human psychology. Through phone calls, emails, and other media, these predators trick us into handing over our sensitive personal and financial information and can cause great damage as a result.
