Accidental scientific breakthrough could unlock the future of alternative energy

Alterntive Energy

Two professors from the RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in the U.S. have accidently found a new way to generate electricity. Professors Kourosh kalantar-zadeh and Michael Strano have been experimenting with nanotechnology for several years. Recently, the duo’s research yielded startling results when set on fire. The fire itself was not the result of an accident or disaster; rather it was an experiment with carbon nanotubes. The nanotubes reacted to the blaze in an unexpected way, however, generating a large electrical current that the…
