Scientists Invent Nuclear Waste–Powered Diamond Battery that Lasts Over 5,000 Years

A team of physicists and chemists from the University of Bristol have developed nuclear waste–powered radioactive diamond batteries that last more than 5,000 years. The new technology — which uses a man-made diamond that generates a small electrical current when placed in a radioactive field — could simultaneously help solve the problems of radioactive nuclear waste, clean electricity generation, and battery life, the researchers claim.

Trees Outfitted With Tiny, Vertical Wind Turbines Generate Clean Energy [Watch]

One of the biggest criticisms of wind turbines is that in addition to being very loud, they’re not very nice to look at. This is likely to soon change – at least in urban environments, thanks to an aesthetically appealing innovation created by the French company New Wind. When one first glances at a Tree Vent, it appears to be like any other tree. Upon closer inspection, however, it becomes very obvious that each ‘leaf’ on the device is actually a vertical wind turbine.

Nuclear Fusion Reactor in France Could Bring Breakthroughs That Will Provide Limitless, Clean Energy and Secure the Planet’s Future

The most sophisticated, expensive machine ever built is slowly taking shape at the in rural France at the Cadarache nuclear facility. It is a scientific collaboration on a worldwide scale, meant to tackle one of the biggest challenges of the 21st century – with the human population growing every year, how do we continue to make ever more electricity past 2050 (the date that the EU has set for full decarburization of power generation) without destroying the environment? The scientists and engineers in Saint-Paul-lez-Durance think the solution is nuclear fusion – they want to recreate a star in a box on Earth.
