"Microrockets Take Off In Acid" / Joseph Wang research in Chemical & Engineering News

NanoEngineering professor Joseph Wang from the UC San Diego Jacobs School of Engineering and colleagues have published work on microrockets that run on acid. Chemical & Engineering News created a great video (embedded below) and wrote a story on the research: "Microrockets Take Off In Acid". This research was published (J. Am. Chem. Soc., DOI: 10.1021/ja210874s).

The first sentence of Lauren Wolf's story in Chemical & Engineering News:
Microrockets—those tiny, self-propelled, tubular engines being developed to pick up and carry cellular and molecular cargo—can now operate in some natural environments.
