The "Living Concrete" That Can Heal Itself

Wow! This development could radically change the construction industry. A scientist discovered a way to create concrete that heals itself when it cracks. The mixture contains water-soluble encapsulated bacteria that activate when they become wet. The bacteria then create limestone, which is the material we use to pump up sunken concrete, and the limestone generated seals the crack. Way to go, Science! Click here to read the story on CNN.
