WARNING! ZERO BIOLOGY KNOWLEDGE!

There's probably a way to make a body accept non-terminal tissues and incorporate them properly. Perhaps it would be a worthwhile avenue for preventative medicines treatments.

It's funny, that is indeed the exact face a male cat makes when another male cat tries to have sex with him.

Immuno-suppressive drugs already exist.  Transplants would almost always fail without them, however they leave you more vulnerable to infections.  I'm pretty sure that research into coaxing a body to accept targeted foreign tissues has been ongoing since the first transplant rejections.

E-eh? That was a response to the "How will stuffs grow in a vat" problem.

My answer is grow it in its intended recipient.

I'm always afraid of actually curing the common cold.  It's that usual "take down the timeless evil and something worse will step in to fill the void" thing.

Of course that worse might just be gross overpopulation.

Like the nasty chlorine-resistant shit that's starting to show up in swimming pools.

(Literal shit, actually, if I'm not mistaken.)

Still, the fear of evolution is no reason not to try to cure a disease.  There are lots and lots of penicillin-resistant bugs now, but that doesn't make penicillin a bad idea.

They'll just be able to say they've caught the new mutated strain of cold that's resistant to whatever new treatment this leads to.

olumbus (OH) - Researchers at Ohio State University have accidentally discovered a new solar cell material capable of absorbing all of the sun's visible light energy. The material is comprised of a hybrid of plastics, molybdenum and titanium. The team discovered it not only fluoresces (as most solar cells do), but also phosphoresces. Electrons in a phosphorescent state remain at a place where they can be "siphoned off" as electricity over 7 million times longer than those generated in a fluorescent state. This combination of materials also utilizes the entire visible spectrum of light energy, translating into a theoretical potential of almost 100% efficiency. Commercial products are still years away, but this foundational work may well pave the way for a truly renewable form of clean, global energy.
Dubious and don't remember reading about it on physorg, but I like the steady clip of progress we're seeing with PV in general.

...PNAS...heh heh heh...

Solar cells like these [not the ones discussed above] are also incredibly expensive, fragile and impractical for mass production, making them useful for projects like satellites.
Unfortunate wording.

Not really.  That's actually how aerospace guys think.
