Data analysis from Hebrew University in Israel indicates that if spacetime is quantized and foamlike on a numbingly tiny scale, there is an upper limit to the size of those bubbles of spacetime.
Michigan State University has invented a solar energy concentrator that appears as transparent as glass but actually captures the infrared and ultraviolet in the Sun's rays and then deflects them, as infrared, to photovoltaic cells on the edges of the plastic cell. So to us, the cell appears transparent but in reality…
