The world’s first floating nuclear power plant

Nuclear-powered submarines, aircraft carriers and even icebreakers have been in operation for over 50 years now with a remarkable success rate. Russia is further commercialising that technology by building a fleet of floating nuclear power plants that will provide electricity to remote areas where building a permanent reactor is either too expensive or too dangerous. It launched the world’s first floating nuclear power plant in April this year. Other countries have floated the idea —namely China and the US. Construction on the Russian floating power plant first began in 2007, but hit many snags along the way. Rosatom plans to begin building a second floating power plant next year. https://gizmodo.com/russias-floating-nuclear-power-plant-has-hit-the-sea-1825650002/amp

Faster detection of leukemia

A key part of diagnosing blood cancers is done by detecting abnormal chromosomes inside leukaemia cells. Now a new technique, pioneered by Wendy Erber, Kathy Fuller and Henry Hui from the University of Western Australia, will allow these diagnoses to be made more efficiently. The method is the first of its kind and can detect one leukaemia cell in a population of 10,000 normal cells. The trio won the Innovative Use of Technology Eureka Prize due to the sophisticated nature of their work. It will help in predicting the best treatment for a patient and the likely outcome.” http://www.abc.net.au/news/science/2018-08-29/eureka-prizes-2018-five-awesome-innovations-australian-research/10179328?

Putting cancer cells into a permanent sleep

Australian scientists have discovered a new type of anti-cancer drug that can put cancer cells into a permanent sleep, without the harmful side-effects caused by conventional cancer therapies. By targeting specific proteins researchers have been able to develop a small molecule that inhibits their activity. The process can stop tumour growth and spread without damaging the cells’ DNA. . Conventional cancer therapies (like chemotherapy and radiotherapy) cause irreversible DNA damage as they target both cancer cells and healthy cells. The DNA damage can result in short-term and long-term side effects such as nausea, fatigue, hair loss and susceptibility to infection, as well as infertility and increased risk of other cancers developing. This new class of anti-cancer drugs simply puts the cancer cells into a permanent sleep. https://blog.csiro.au/time-for-bed-anti-cancer-drug-putting-cancer-cells-into-a-permanent-sleep/

New environmentally friendly concrete

Cement, the essential ingredient of concrete, is responsible for 7% of global man-made greenhouse emissions. A Canadian startup has invented a new system for making concrete that traps CO2 emissions forever and at the same time reduces the need for cement. CarbonCure’s system takes captured CO2 and injects it into concrete as it’s being mixed. Once the concrete hardens, that carbon is sequestered forever. Even if the building is torn down, the carbon stays put. That’s because it reacts with the concrete and becomes a mineral. https://money.cnn.com/2018/06/12/technology/concrete-carboncure/index.html?

Your face is your passport at Qantas

Qantas is trialling a biometrics system that uses your face as your passport at Sydney International Airport. Participants will have their face scanned to prove identity, instead of a passport. In the future your face will be your passport and your boarding pass. Qantas customers will not only be able to check-in for their flight using the technology, it is also available for their lounge staff who can create a more personalized experience when you arrive. https://www.cnbc.com/2018/07/05/your-face-will-be-your-passport-qantas-passengers-start-using-biome.html?

The world’s first commercial rock lobster hatchery

A new partnership with the University of Tasmania is planning to commercialise rock lobster production research and establish the world’s first hatchery for rock lobsters. Despite the high value of rock lobsters the long and complex lifecycle has made it impossible before now to produce the species in a commercially scalable hatchery. Australian companies are being offered the opportunity to collaborate with the University of Tasmania to scale-up and commercialise its innovative rock lobster aquaculture systems and related technologies.. http://www.imas.utas.edu.au/news/news-items/world-leading-aquaculture-breakthrough-to-transform-lobster-production
