Scientists are making see-through wood, and it could replace glass

Wood is an ancient material humans have been using for millions of years, for the construction of housing, ships, and as a source of fuel for burning.

Today, the main component of wood – cellulose – is produced annually at 20 times the volume of steel. One thing you wouldn’t use wood for is making windows. Instead, we rely on glass and plastic, which are transparent and, when toughened, can gi...
