...you can just vibrate them to death with sound waves or lasers!
Scientists may one day be able to destroy viruses in the same way that opera singers presumably shatter wine glasses. New research mathematically determined the frequencies at which simple viruses could be shaken to death.
"The capsid of a virus is something like the shell of a turtle," said physicist Otto Sankey of Arizona State University. "If the shell can be compromised [by mechanical vibrations], the virus can be inactivated."
Recent experimental evidence has shown that laser pulses tuned to the right frequency can kill certain viruses. However, locating these so-called resonant frequencies is a bit of trial and error.
I know, seems kinda silly but honestly, viruses can adapt to drugs and antibiotics by mutating genetic code. If they are physically compromised by having the outer layers that hold them together by sound or light waves, they can't mutate to adapt to that nearly as well. It could be a definitive score and possibility of eliminating such things as HIV (causes aids), Herpes, HPV, Ebola, Marburg and maybe even cancer.
So the next time someone tells you that your hobby is silly or you play your music too loud, just tell them that you are performing experiments in curing diseases!
