progress has been made in the direction of improving translations, Laurance Doyle of SETI has demonstrated an astounding pattern in languages. Doyle has demonstrated that any language, be it a conversation spoken in Mandarin, or a British novel, if you take a count of each word provided it forms a pattern. The pattern is that when sorted on order from greatest to fewest occurrences, the words form a 45 degree slope. This pattern emerges in any language, and Doyle has shown this to be true even in communications sent between dolphins.

8. Gech SkinGech skin is a dry adhesive that provides an ideal grip for robot feet. It is a synthetic replication of the material that geckos have on their feet which allows them to crawl up smooth surfaces and also to rest without exerting any energy. Check out this great YouTube video which covers the material in greater detail.
9. Kardashev scale
Physicist Michio Kaku defined the Kardashev scale as a means to measure the level of a civilization's of technological advancement. The scale was first proposed in 1964 by the Soviet astronomer Nikolai Kardashev after which it has been named. He defines the scale based on the amount of energy that a civilization is able to access and control. The scale has three categories designated as Type I, II, and III. Type I civilizations are able to use all available resources available from their own planet. Type II civilizations are able to harnesses all the energy of an orbited star. Type III civilizations are able to harvest all of the energy contained within their galaxy. Various extensions of the scale have been proposed such as types 0, IV and V.
