Features to look for in a wood burning stove or outdoor fireplace
Technology has made closed fireplaces and wood stoves cleaner and more efficient. Glass-ceramic fronts radiate heat better than other materials, and reflects heat back for a hotter and cleaner fire. Combine these benefits with new industrial designs and it's apparent why fireplaces and wood stoves remain beloved.
The materials key to detecting gravitational waves
Astrophysicists from the European Space Agency (ESA) are in the midst of a large-scale mission to detect gravitational waves from astronomical sources with the technology of the LISA Pathfinder. At the center of LISA Pathfinder is a piece of glass-ceramic that’s providing the support necessary to capture and relay exact measurements back to ESA scientists.
