NASA Researchers Unveil Innovative Ice-Covered Mars Habitat Concept-1

NASA researchers unveil innovative ice-covered Mars habitat concept

Here at HEXAPOLIS, we have talked quite a bit about the different Mars habitat concepts that designers and scientists have come up over the years. There was the innovative Ouroboros dwelling, conceived by MIT students as part of NASA's 3D-Printed Habitat Challenge, which is built using the Red Planet's silica reserves. The Sfero House is…


Synthetic Spider Silk Could Revolutionize Drug Delivery And Wound Care-1

Synthetic spider silk could revolutionize drug delivery and wound care

Boasting a wide range of impressive properties, including high extensibility, extremely high tensile strength and toughness, spider silk is a nature's wonder that scientists have long tried to recreate in the laboratory. After five years of research, a team from the United Kingdom has finally managed to produce artificial spider silk that could revolutionize the…


Smart Electric Roads Could Wirelessly Charge Running Vehicles-1

Israeli innovators build smart electric roads that can wirelessly charge running vehicles

While France recently unveiled the world's first solar panel-fitted pathway, Israel it seems is working on something even more spectacular: smart roads that could wirelessly charge electric vehicles while they are still running. The company behind this futuristic project, Electroad believes that the new technology could not only eliminate the need for EVs to stop midway…


Stunning Artwork Depicts Epic Battle Scenes Of Stromtroopers VS. Aleins-4

Stunning artwork depicts epic battle scenes of Stormtroopers vs. Aliens

Spanish artist Guillem H. Pongiluppi's latest collection is somewhat along the same line as Batman V Superman, although at much grander scale (some might say). Instead of pitting superheroes against each other, the artwork showcases two of the biggest names in the science fiction universe, Darth Vader and Alien Queen, engaged in an epic battle.…


Scientists Have Officially Identified A New Organ In The Human Body-2

Scientists have officially identified a new organ in the human body, and it lies in our digestive system

Scientists have officially identified a new organ in the human body, which they are calling mesentery. Located in the digestive system, the organ's structure has only recently been uncovered. Although its function still remains a mystery, researchers believe that studying it could enhance understanding of digestive and abdominal diseases and their treatments. Speaking about the…

Strikingly fascinating: Elusive ruby seadragon spotted in its natural habitat for the first time

Elusive Ruby Seadragon Spotted In Nature For The First Time-1

Beautiful, yet extremely rare, the ruby seadragon has been seen out in the wild for the first time, off the coast of Western Australia. Known to humans only through a few museum specimens, this fascinating organism has been observed in nature for the very first time. In April of 2016 a group of marine scientists captured an underwater video of two ruby seadragons floating around in the water. (more…)

Skyscapers of 2062 could be 3D-printed giants with smog-eating abilities and retractable balconies

Skyscapers Of 2062 Could Be 3D-Printed, Smog-Eating Giants-2

What better way to start 2017 than to look 45 years into the future? For their latest project, New York-based materials science company Arconic has revealed how a skyscraper of 2062 would look like. Towering above 3 miles (around 4.8 kilometer) into the air, the incredibly futuristic structure would feature an array of advanced technologies, some currently under-development while others that are already available commercially, such as retractable balconies and smog-eating exterior.

There was the innovative Ouroboros dwelling, conceived by MIT students as part of NASA’s 3D-Printed Habitat Challenge, which is built using the Red Planet’s silica reserves. The Sfero House is somewhat similar, with its outer structure made from iron ore extracted from the Martian soil. (more…)

Watch: Mind-boggling video by RealLifeLore shows just how big tsunamis can get

Watch Mind-Boggling Video Shows Just How Big Tsunamis Can Get-1

If the recent catastrophes in the Indian Ocean and Japan are any indication, tsunamis are likely to strike again and, will quite possibly be scarier and more destructive than ever before. It makes sense, therefore, to know a bit more about the horrific natural disaster that caused one of the worst nuclear disasters in the history of mankind. (more…)

Ingenious, bowl-shaped roofs could be Iran’s solution to burgeoning water crisis

Ingenious, Bowl-Shaped Roofs To Be Iran's Solution To Water Crisis-5

Decades of poor rainfall and water management have made water scarcity a very real problem for the people of Iran. While the government is quick to blame climate change and recurrent droughts for the country’s acute water shortage problem, the truth remains that millions of its people are currently residing without proper access to this valuable resource. To that end, Iran-based firm BMDesign Studios has come up with an innovative solution, which they are calling the Concave Roof. (more…)

Scientists have just discovered a whole new world full of life and color underneath the Antarctic ice

Magical Wonderland Antarctica-1

There’s a whole new world underneath the Antarctic ice sheet full of life and color that has left even the best scientific minds baffled. Discovered by a team of Australian researchers with the help of a camera-equipped remotely operated vehicle (or ROV), this vibrant wonderland is located beneath the O’Brien Bay in the eastern part of Antarctica. The video recorded by the ROV in turn showcases the brilliantly lively underwater universe existing in what is usually thought to be a cold, sterile region. (more…)
