Last year marked some of the revolutionary discoveries that not only extended the limits of the High-Tech world, but also addressed many of the daily problems.
Each year, a handful of innovations, breakthroughs, and discoveries push the boundaries of what is possible using technology. The most important are those that help to solve problems and overcome challenges that impact our planet or our everyday lives. Some of these innovative breakthroughs of 2022 included novel concepts such as a privately funded space mission to the drugs for Covid, Diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease and mRNA vaccinology. There were so many that made a difference, however considering the scope of the article here are the major ones.
5 Innovative Breakthroughs of 2022
Space Tourism is one of the most current concepts. Although, the concept is the domain of just the elite few, but the trend has begun. Amazon’s CEO Jeff Bezos companies Virgin Galactic and Blue Origin successfully carried passengers into space in 2021. Coming this year, Axiom-1 created history as it became the first privately funded mission to dock with the International Space Station (ISS). With a SpaceX designed aircraft, three astronauts launched from Kennedy Space Center in the month of April. It spent 16 days attached with the ISS’s Harmony hub. The Axiom-1 mission is the future of space travel as it begins the establishment of privately funded and operated space station., Furthermore, it provides the organizations to carry out R & D projects in space.
Biotechnology has revolutionized every aspect of life. From medical preservation, production of Bio-Oils and Food, the potential is unlimited. Here are some of the most innovative breakthroughs of 2022 in the area of Biotechnology. Genetic Editing is a recently introduced concept known as PLANTeDIT. Through the latest development, it can help them have a longer life. Also, a company has developed an Artificial Intelligence based gene therapy which can treat humans while avoiding the side effects of medicines. Sustainable meat in a laboratory from a cow’s muscle, without actually killing it. Not only can it reduce the pain of the animal, but it can also result in reduction of greenhouse gas emissions from animal farming.
AI (Artificial Intelligence)
Artificial Intelligence has come in handy in so many areas. Interestingly, an AI tool can make it easier to find the probability of an individual to get a heart attack. The tool detects the amount of plaque accumulated in the arteries that supply blood to the heart.
Self-Heating Burning Plasma
Since long scientists have studied the process of Nuclear Fusion. And the objective has been single , create energy that powers the sun. This year the researchers at the National Ignition Facility took the first step in the direction. They published a paper outlining their successful attempts at creating “self-heating burning plasma.” It’s hoped that this breakthrough will eventually lead to commercially viable fusion reactors that will provide us with a nearly limitless, cheap, and clean source of energy.
Ethereum blockchain acted both a distributed computing platform as well as a cryptocurrency. Overall energy usage is significantly reduced (almost 99.9%). And it shall make a significant savings in energy. Often seen as a major hurdle as blockchain networks efficiency is reduced. Essentially, PoS and PoW are two different methods of validating transactions on a blockchain – a distributed, decentralized database that relies on cryptography to keep multiple copies of the database synchronized, effectively making them tamper-proof.
These innovative breakthroughs of 2022 are sure to bring revolution in the coming years
These are some of the landmark scientific and technological achievements of 2022. Let us hail them all with no small measure of pride. Stay tuned for latest discoveries coming your way.
