Sub-$10K Polydrops trailer sheds lines and weight to boost EV camping
Los Angeles-based camping trailer builder Polydrops made an immediate name for itself by reimagining the teardrop trailer as a polyhedron. Now, in an effort to offer a lighter, more aerodynamic drop-sized camper tailored to electric vehicles, it's planed and sanded away some of the "poly" to create the smooth, sleek P19 Shorty. The new trailer weighs a mere 640 lb, houses two people and their dog in a simple but cozy cabin, and comes in at a fraction the price of previous Polydrops. Its hybrid poly/teardrop shape looks just as striking as the original and is helped along by some aerodynamic tri

Animals that spread seeds found to be pivotal to forest regeneration
The way animals disperse seeds throughout landscapes is known to be an important element in promoting growth of forested areas, and a new study over an extended timeframe has shed valuable new light on this process. Scientists have studied a forest in Panama over a 100-year period to build a long-term picture of its regeneration, and found a heightened focus on plant-animal interactions may be our best course of action.

Revolutionary photocatalyst is huge news for green hydrogen and ammonia
A fundamental breakthrough in chemistry promises to unlock ammonia as a clean fuel, and it could help decarbonize the entire chemical industry in the process. Rice University researchers have created a small, LED-powered device that converts ammonia to hydrogen on the fly. It uses a light-driven catalyst that's as efficient as expensive thermal catalysts that need thousand-degree temperatures to operate, and it's made from cheap, abundant copper and iron. And it's only the beginning of a technology that could radically reduce costs and energy use in industrial chemistry.
