Self Healing Concrete

This is just oddly cool! They have found that with bacteria (and food for it), concrete could heal itself of hairline cracks. The key is to seal the bacteria in the concrete so that the concrete doesn’t kill the bacteria before it is needed. They are trying to place the bacteria in a dormant state so that it can be activated when there is a crack. New Scientist has a cool article talking about it!
