    Market Research & Trends
    Nanoparticles act as surgical blades for improved dental surgery
    “Currently, more than 80 nanotechnologies have been approved for a variety of medical applications, from treating cancer to bioimaging to tissue remodeling.,br /> “Now in a new study, researchers have shown that enzyme-containing nanoparticles can perform minor dental surgery and improve the outcome of dental braces for reorienting severely misaligned teeth into their proper position. Tests showed that rats treated with the nanoparticles before wearing braces exhibited better tooth alignment, reduced tooth relapse, faster recovery, and less pain compared to rats that underwent traditional surgery before braces.
    “The researchers, led by Avi Schroeder at Technion-Israel Institute of Technology, have published a paper on the new nanotechnology in a recent issue of ACS Nano…” (Click here to keep reading)

    News of the Weird
    Elon Musk launches car into space playing David Bowie's "Space Oddity"
    Billionaire Elon Musk recently kicked off a new space race by strapping a Tesla Roadster onto the world’s most powerful operational rocket and launching it into space. Strapping a car to a spaceship wasn’t just a done for laughs: this was a test rocket. Actual launches in the future will be carrying a payload, so the test launch needed something to act as a "mass simulator" – which can be anything heavy enough to simulate an actual payload. A spacesuit-clad dummy named Starman sits at the wheel of the $200,000 convertible, which is now headed toward the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter. Naturally, the car was sent into space in style. The radio plays the late David Bowie’s song “Space Oddity” on repeat, and a screen on the dashboard reads “Don’t Panic,” a reference to Douglas Adams’ The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. In addition, a miniature Hot Wheels Roadster rests on the dashboard, and there is a plaque bearing the names of several SpaceX executives.
