A 15-year old schoolboy from Rivne, Ivan Ostapin, invented an instrument to synthesize carbon nano-structures. According to experts the instrument can be used for the treatment of cancer without chemo therapy, our correspondent reports Nov. 21.
As voltage is applied to the positive and negative rods, nanostructures are formed in the arc, the schoolboy says.
Ivan’s invention heralds a technical revolution, experts say, as nano-materials can be used to treat cancer.
As nano-materials are implanted in a cancer tumor and heated using the arc, the resulting high temperature kills a cancer tumor, experts explain.
The schoolboy has already patented his invention and received a $900 bonus.
