The Palauan jellyfish - environmentalresearchweb - 0 views

  •  
    "The Palauan jellyfish, Mastigias. The researchers placed green fluorescent dye upstream of the animal body. As the animal continued to swim, it interacted with the dye volume and pulled a volume of dye along with it. This volume of fluid moving with the animal is drift (first identified by Sir Charles Darwin, the grandson of the Origin of Species author)."

Agricultural engineering - Engineering - 0 views

  •  
    "Agricultural engineering is the discipline of engineering in agricultural, food, and biological systems. Agricultural engineers design agricultural machinery and equipment and agricultural structures. Some specialties include power system and machinery design; structures and environment; and food and bioprocess engineering. They develop ways to conserve soil and water and to improve the processing of agricultural products. Agricultural engineers work in research and development, production, sales, or management. "

Academics Blog » Materials Science & Engineering * - 0 views

  •  
    "Materials Science and Engineering major, with concentrations offered in Biomaterials and Nanotechnology. As expected, the program provided a solid grounding in what materials science really is. Students explore materials from the atomic level all the way through crystal structures, multiphase systems, and bulk properties. You'll have an opportunity to learn why objects' matter matters. You'll explore the details of why glass shatters, metal bends, and rubber bounces back-and that's just in one class on mechanical properties. If you're more interested in how the circuits in your computer are fabricated, or why hip replacements are made of titanium instead of aluminum, you won't even have to go looking for courses in other departments. Materials Science is one of the most fundamental, and therefore most interdisciplinary, fields that exists today. In many core classes, you'll find more students from other majors than from the department itself."

Cheetahs on the Edge--Director's Cut - 0 views

  •  
    "Cheetahs are the fastest runners on the planet. Combining the resources of National Geographic and the Cincinnati Zoo, and drawing on the skills of an incredible crew, we documented these amazing cats in a way that's never been done before. Using a Phantom camera filming at 1200 frames per second while zooming beside a sprinting cheetah, the team captured every nuance of the cat's movement as it reached top speeds of 60+ miles per hour."

Short Sharp Science: How elephants' hair style helps them stay cool - 0 views

  •  
    "An elephant's hairs help heat travel away from the skin. According to the study, a light breeze is enough to significantly cool an elephant, increasing its heat loss by 20 per cent. Elephants, big leathery animals that they are, need to know how to cool off. They also use their trunks to splash water and mud on themselves."

Dianne Ashworth Bionic Eye: 'Little Flash' Brings Australian Woman Some Sight - 0 views

  •  
    "A bionic eye has given an Australian woman partial sight and researchers say it is an important step towards eventually helping visually impaired people get around independently. Dianne Ashworth, who has severe vision loss due to the inherited condition retinitis pigmentosa, was fitted with a prototype bionic eye in May at the Royal Victorian Eye and Ear Hospital. It was switched on a month later."

New Scientist TV: How to hack a snail to create a living battery - 0 views

  •  
    "The researchers demonstrated that an "electrified" snail could be a living battery producing up to 7 milliwatts. Although the power output decreased rapidly, feeding the snail could partially refuel it straight away. Alternatively, allowing the snail to rest for about half an hour would allow it to recharge. "
