Science is powerful. Science as a collective institution aims to produce more and more accurate natural explanations of how the natural world works, what its components are, and how the world got to be the way it is now.
Scientist unintentionally created nanorods that harvests water from the air. These nanorods can absorb more water as the humidity in the air around them increases, then expel it as the humidity increases between 50-80 percent.
These nanorods was created unintentionally when the team was trying to create magnetic nanowires, but ended up producing these carbon nanorods instead. The researchers decided to give the accidents a closer look. To know more visit this article.
