A lesson about natural resources: Exponential growth and limits in a time of COVID-19
One of the foundational notions of sustainability is that long-term exponential growth in a finite world can only lead to catastrophe. In the last half-year or so we have seen a real-time example of exponential growth and perhaps most importantly, how this growth is most appropriately seen as being a characteristic of a diseased system, not a desirable goal.

University of Dayton researchers find technique for 3-D printing on nanoscale that can correct mistakes

University of Dayton physics and electro-optics researchers Md Shah Alam, Qiwen Zhan and Chenglong Zhao have created a less expensive 3-D printing method on a nanoscale, or a thousand times smaller than a human hair, that can manufacture nanostructures and erase mistakes. Top nanotechnology journal Nano Letters published their findings.
