French researchers have developed a self-setting injectable macroporous foam for repairing bone and assisting its growth. It could help regenerate bone faster than other materials while offering a quick and minimally invasive way for surgeons to perform bone repair procedures, and possibly treat osteoporosis.

Physicists plan a miniaturized particle accelerator prototype in five years | The Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation has awarded $13.5 million to Stanford University for an international effort to build a working particle accelerator the size of a shoebox, based on an “accelerator on a chip” design, a novel technique using laser light to propel electrons through a series of glass chips, with the potential to revolutionize science, medicine, and other fields by dramatically shrinking the…
In November researchers showed off the lightest material ever created...
