More April science breakthroughs!

Rise of the machines. Well. Or just the self-assembling nanoparticles.

A relief to anyone perhaps overworried about Yellowstone (not that it’s not still a big deal): Supervolcanoes just got downgraded as an extinction threat.

And a potential huge boon for transportation of furniture or ‘soft’ implements required off-world (not to mention, threat to Ikea): the chair that unpacks itself.

It’s been a good month in science!
