Scientists have discovered a whole array of new materials that promise to change the world. Welcome to the Industrial Revolution 2.0.
The Mohs scale of mineral hardness characterizes the scratch resistance of various minerals through the ability of a harder material to scratch a softer material. It was created in 1812 by the German geologist and mineralogist Friedrich Mohs and is one of several definitions of hardness in materials science.

In Part 1 of The Quest for an Affordable Dust-Collecting Cyclone, I got one of the facts backwards; luckily Stuart Deutsch (newly-minted PhD in Materials Science and Engineering, congrats Stu!) over at ToolGuyd wrote in to set the record straight. I'd incorrectly stated that "most of the dust (and particularly...
Science fair projects can be tedious. Most experiments require a lot of hard work and expensive materials. Try a simpler experiment that is still impressive. Doing an experiment on tooth decay is both beneficial and interesting. It only requires a few inexpensive materials and a week's worth of observation and record keeping. The experiment...
