Standardized units of measurement are essential in science as well as trade and technology. However, the process of achieving standardization has been complicated, and refinements were still being made until recently.
ANALYSES, BACKGROUND, INTERVIEWS
The application areas of rare earths and technology metals are the focus of reporting at Rawmaterials.net. During background research, however, the editorial team also regularly comes across topics that seem rather curious. We do not want to withhold these from you and present them in loose succession. Today it is about molluscs and how their regional origin can be proven. Important here is the rare earth neodymium.
The Exploratorium in San Francisco also makes natural sciences tangible on the Internet. The video platform YouTube plays an important role in this.
In the high-profile comedy "Don't Look Up," scientists have a hard time getting their powerful message across.
A new method developed at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) involving sulfidation promises to make the rare earth refinement process easier, cheaper, and greener.
