The Biggest Scientific Discoveries Of 2023
History - Science
First-Ever Writing
Scientists have documented what appears to be markings accompanied by drawings of animals as old as 37,000 years in cave systems across Europe.
While their purpose was unknown, a study published in the Cambridge Archaeological Journal in January 2023 suggests this may be the earliest notational system.
Fountain Of Youth
Biologist Shinya Yamanaka discovered a series of proteins capable of reconfiguring average cells into stem cells in 2012. This discovery is still being explored.
As of 2023, two teams from the United States have tested these proteins, discovering they may extend human lifespans and even reverse the effects of old age.
With the miniaturization of electronic devices seemingly hitting a plateau, the concept of the "metadevice" is being explored and may serve as the basis for 6G.
By manipulating the electrical fields within semiconductors, these metadevices are expected to have output frequencies in the terahertz range.
Liquid Metal Robots
In January 2023, researchers at Pennsylvania’s Carnegie Mellon University presented miniature robots that turn into puddles when exposed to magnetism.
These liquid metal robots can support 30 times their weight when solid and are malleable enough to be stretched and manipulated to perform different tasks when liquid.
Living Printable Ink
While 3-D printed products are often too brittle or malleable due to the ink’s limitations, researchers at EPFL’s School of Engineering may have a solution.
They published a study in "Materials Today" on using living bacteria as an ingredient for "BactoInk." This ink is far more durable than conventional 3-D printed objects.
