SCI-FI BECOMING SCI-FACT: Researchers at Tsinghua University in Beijing are developing an injectible liquid metal alloy that hardens bones. According to the South China Morning Post, the new liquid metal alloy made out of bismuth, indium, tin and zinc can mend broken bones in just minutes. Liu Jing, the project's lead researcher, predicts that, "With this technology we will not only revolutionise the treatment of bone injuries or diseases, but create super-fighters, as in science fiction, such as Wolverine." Liu's team has previously used liquid metals to reconnect severed sciatic nerves. Liu, a cryobiology and nano-medicine specialist, is also working on an implantable power source to energize and strengthen the hearts of future "superhuman"soldiers.
