3D printers

3-d printers are amazing things that are capable for doing many things. They are really cool and are very useful for making prototypes even though they are a bit on the costly side they are still great. Here is what I think about 3-d printers.

Cockroach Milk???!!!

Every day many people have their breakfast with milk. The milk we drink comes from cows, goats, buffalo, and sheep for the entire earth.

This may sound crazy, but cockroach milk may have lots of nutrients. Already scientists are referring to them as "mini-livestock". In 2004, Subramanian Ramaswamy was studying crystals in the guts of cockroach embryos. These crystals come from the Pacific Beetle Cockroach. They are the only species of cockroach to be viviparous (which means they give live birth). The mothers feed their developing babies with a milk like liquid with those crystals in it that are filled with protein. To learn more…

How to make glow in the dark crystals

How to make glow in the dark crystals These crystals are easy to grow and they are simple to make. They are called Alum crystals. They are the most reliable crystal you can grow and if you add some household ingredients you can make it glow in the dark. The materials you will need in this solution are a fluorescent highlighter pen (You can use any color for a different effect) make sure the highlighter can glow under a black light, usually the color will work but many blue pens don't glow. You will also need alum sold in a pickling, the final ingredient will be water. First carefully cut open the highlighters and then remove the ink strip (you may use gloves, since a highlighter can stain your fingers).…
