Scientists at at Worcester Polytechnic Institute have successfully managed to grow human heart cells on a scaffolding made from spinach leaf. How? First, they dissolved the leaf's cellular material using detergents, leaving the cellulose background behind. Once completed, they added human heart cells and got them to adhere to the structure. These cells could still beat the way a normal heart should, while the vasculature could support blood flow. Click here to view the first image in today's viral picture gallery.

China Tank Snow

Baotou city in north China's Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region saw heavy amounts of snow falling, which meant the painstaking task of clearing it away so all its residents can all get on with their daily lives. However, the city has unveiled a new weapon in its snow clearing armory: a tank with caterpillar tracks, bogie wheels, and a huge snow blower where the turret normally is. "A jet engine is added on the tank chassis. Snow is blown away by the hot and high-speed air expelled by the engine", said the designers at the China North Industries Group Corporation (CNIGC). It can reach speeds of 20 to 30 kilometers per hour on the road, topping out at 48 to 50 kilometers per hour. Click here to view the first image in this week's geek life gallery.

Asteroid Skyscraper

Why bother with space elevators, when you could be staying in a skyscraper that is suspended from an orbiting asteroid? Clouds Architecture Office's latest project, called "Analemma," is a skyscraper powered by space-based solar panels, and is capable of capturing water in a semi-closed loop system that draws from the moisture in clouds and rainwater. How does it work? Well, a large orbiting asteroid is first set on a figure-eight geosynchronous path that moves between the north / south hemispheres on a predictable daily loop.
