MDetecting explosives is something which researchers are always seeking to do in more efficient and accurate ways. We have seen this in the computer processor capable of detecting both cancer cells and explosives, and the unique biologically engineered bacteria that glows when near explosives. Researchers at MIT have proven that spinach is more than just a superfood by creating spinach plants which warn about the presence of explosives. In a unique process, researchers have been able to create plants capable of communicating with them. In order to achieve this result, engineers at MIT embedded spinach leaves with carbon nanotubes, which…
