Scientists Have Created the World's First Non-Cuttable Material

When we think of the world's "hardest" materials, usually diamonds come to mind. However, Diamonds themselves can be cut by a select few materials, including other diamonds. What if you couldn't cut through though. What if scientists had figured out how to create a material you literally cannot cut through. Enter Proteus

This recently revealed material, inspired by natural materials that mimic incredible natural durability, was tested using a variety of cutting methods, all of which failed. The world's first uncuttable material has arrived.

Researchers develop the world's first non-cuttable material, able to withstand and blunt some of the strongest cutting materials and methods available today. The cover photo is of a test trying and failing to cut through a piece of Proteus with an industrial angle grinder, which fails and is not only blunted, but the blade is completely stopped by the friction of the internal makeup of the material

This Researcher Has Come Up With A Way to Take Pictures Underwater As On Land

Oceanographer and engineer Derya Akkaynak has come up with a breakthrough in the world of photography. During her post-doctoral work under Tali Treibitz at the University of Haifa, she developed an algorithm that can more or less "eliminate the water" from a photograph.

Researcher comes up with novel algorithm that allows photos underwater to have the same clarity and depth of color as if it was taken on land

This Newly Found Electric Eel Was a Shock For Scientists

For years, scientists knew little about the elusive and dangerous electric eels. Finding a home in the Amazon, these eels have been known as one species. But recently, scientists discovered they are not one, but three distinct species. In addition, a newly discovered species Electrophorus voltai, is shockingly powerful, with shocks measured at 860 volts, well over the previous record of 650. But why are these eels so special? And are they really "eels"? 

Scientists are shocked as they discovered the strongest electric eels yet, and whats more, it isn't one species, its three

Cancer Cured? An Australian Company Thinks So

What was once a saving grace to halt the scourge of smallpox 2 centuries ago, has now struck again, this time, with cancer. CF33, or Chimeric Orthopoxvirus. US Cancer wunderkind Professor Yuman Fong made the initial discovery, while the Australian company Imugene licensed the innovation and are pushing for human trials starting next year.
