Orange peels may hold secret to airborne medicine, safer bridges. Engineers have figured out the mechanics of how oranges release that thin stream of fragrant oil when squeezed. They characterized the orange peels' structure and figured out the role the layers have to create the microjet dynamic. By mimicking nature's mechanism of an orange layer, pharmaceutical companies may be able to develop a less expensive and less complex way to deliver airborne medication. Source 1g.

Oh wow, I don't think I've ever heard of air born medication. What'll they think of next? I remain utterly convinced that if it doesn't get thought up in this day and age, it just won't be thought of. Technology has reached that point. Next thing you know somebody out there who's smarter than I am will figure out a way to make physical time travel a reality, and we'll be doing it from our own living room if we want. Hey, I can dream can't I? *laugh*.
