How to get rid of space debris
A project that will test several technologies capable of collecting the cosmic trash and returning it to the Earth's atmosphere.
A team of Scottish researchers is testing a very unique technology that makes artificial bone with vibration.
3D printing already knows about creating biocompatible bones, but now a team of Scottish researchers is testing a particularly unique technology capable of generating artificial bone tissue through vibration. This technique takes stem cells from the bone marrow and through what they call “nanokicks”, that is, high-frequency vibrating impulses, they are stimulated to become bone-producing cells, without any chemicals, surgery and utilizing the patient´s own cellular material.
The team hopes to test bone tissue cultivated by this method in individuals in 3 years’ time, thus entailing another remarkable advancement in medicine due to the great amount of bone transplantations being performed currently.
