ABSTRACT
The article presents information about new scientific discoveries. According to a new research, etching nanoscale grooves into boat hulls could make them go faster and use less fuel. Ronald Thompson of South Bank University, London, England, has come up with a new use of human hair: making chairs. By mixing hair with a polymer resin, he has made a composite material strong enough to make seats from.
