Submission + - Researchers build self-healing plastic->

schliz writes: Watch out for T-1000s (Terminator) — Arizona State researchers have developed a "self-healing" polymer that uses a fibre optic "nervous system" to detect and fix cracks. The system recovers up to 96 percent of an object's original strength in laboratory tests and will likely be used in "large-scale composite structures for which human intervention would be difficult", such as wind turbines, satellites, aircraft and the Mars Rover.
