100 Billion Tons Of Rare Mineral Found, Can Be Used For Tech

Japan’s Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology has recently made a discovery that may reduce technology dependency from China. The discovery was made when 78 ‘very large’ deposits were found at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean, near Hawaii.

The material weighed between 80 billion – 100 billion metric tons of material with similar properties to yttrium. The material is expected to be easy to get out and is low on the dangerous uranium and thorium that affects such deposits.

The council of National Science Technology outlined plans to create a smart grid innovation hub, in a report released yesterday called “Building the 21st Century Grid.”

The innovation hub will be composed of federal researchers, companies, and utility executives and will support research, development, and deployments of smart grid technology.

Netflix Embedded In Google Chrome OS (Leaked News)
