The autonomous locomotion for a macroscopic machine remains an intriguing issue for the researchers to explore. Recently, Professor LIU Jing and his group from Tsinghua University demonstrated that as a versatile material, the liquid metal could be self-actuated when fueled with aluminum (Al) flake, and the motion thus enabled would persist for more than an hour at a quite high velocity.
As our grip on Earth grows ever tighter, so does the possibility that we could destroy it. But we may have the power to do something even worse (full text available to subscribers)
The outcomes of many medical procedures and treatments done in hospitals nationwide aren’t tracked or even measured, says a surgeon who thinks that’s bad. Understanding outcomes, he says, saves lives.
