Another sci-fi trope becomes reality

Instant wound healing is such a familiar concept to us trek and sci-fi fans.

now a 20 year old student invents a gel that does just that!

Amazing!

I'm just glad this isn't another transparent aluminum thread.

It's irrelevant what franchise it reminds you of.

What matters is whether it works.
About that - was it published? Where? Peer review?
It's been 2 months since march - as per the link.

George Lucas raped my childhood, and I'd rather not be reminded of it.

*shudders to remember how Padme died of post-partum depression because the medical droids were too stupid to try Valium or something*

Perhaps I'll be approving if the researchers can figure out how to put the substance in a hypo-spray and apply it directly to a wound instead of making seriously injured patients swim in it while wearing an oxygen mask.

What matters is whether it works.

*spins conspiracy theory about Band-Aid brand and Johnson & Johnson, perhaps involving the entire suture industry*

There can be long delays in publishing, especially if the peer review feedback is asking for more data.

Nice big asteroid nearby

This might be a nearby source of a lot of volitiles

--the amount on Don Quixote represents about 100 billion tons of water-roughly the same amount that can be found in Lake Tahoe, California's.

And no lunar gravity well to deal with. HERE is your depot. I would have thought this thing would have been as dry as a bone after all this time--this close to the sun.

Sadder news, GOCE, the hot rod of space, is faltering
http://www.spacedaily.com/reports/Sp...Earth_999.html

Dammit--this is what spacecraft should look like: http://spaceinimages.esa.int/Images/...ssion_of_GOCE4

not BFI dumpsters with washerboards on sticks...
