Cruise through a collider | Science News - 1 views

  •  
    "tour the Large Hadron Collider and other CERN experiments in 360-degree photo panoramas online. Virtual visitors can "walk" through a tunnel housing part of the collider's 27-kilometer-long particle accelerator. Or you can explore brightly painted particle detectors such as the Compact Muon Solenoid experiment,"

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)."

Video games lead to faster decisions that are no less accurate - 0 views

  •  
    "Cognitive scientists from the University of Rochester have discovered that playing action video games trains people to make the right decisions faster. The researchers found that video game players develop a heightened sensitivity to what is going on around them, and this benefit doesn't just make them better at playing video games, but improves a wide variety of general skills that can help with everyday activities like multitasking, driving, reading small print, keeping track of friends in a crowd, and navigating around town."

Disposable Drones Will Collect Data by Surfing Along with Hurricanes - IEEE Spectrum - 0 views

  •  
    "These robots, made of carbon fiber, are just six inches long and don't weigh much more than an iPod Nano. Hardware on board measures pressure, temperature, humidity, location and time, all to help predict the trajectory and intensity of hurricanes. Since just one of these robots isn't nearly enough to get a good sense of a hurricane, they're designed to be used in swarms of tens or hundreds, collecting massive amounts of data while creating their own autonomous network."

NASA - NASA Explorer Schools NASA Now Classroom Videos - 0 views

  •  
    "Join us in the Icing Research Tunnel at NASA's Glenn Research Center in Cleveland, Ohio, when aeromechanical engineer and icing specialist Judith VanZante gives a tour and explains how engineers apply simple concepts in physical science to create windy, cold and wet conditions for aircraft. VanZante explains the hazards of ice on aircraft, how it is formed, and why research on ice plays a major role in aeronautics. "

Research | Welcome to Tech Trek! - 0 views

    "In an era when women are increasingly prominent in medicine, law and business, why are there so few women scientists and engineers? With Why So Few?, AAUW presents compelling evidence that can help to explain this puzzle. The research report presents in-depth yet accessible profiles of eight key research findings that point to environmental and social barriers - including stereotypes, gender bias and the climate of science and engineering departments in colleges and universities - that continue to block women's participation and progress in science, technology, engineering, and math."

Join us! We're sending citizen science to the International Space Station! - 0 views

  •  
    " several new opportunities to get involved in research including one we are sending to the International Space Station in September! Join us and the Science Cheerleaders (NFL and NBA cheerleaders who are also scientists and engineers) to collect microbes from sports stadiums which we will send to UCDavis for analysis. Forty samples will be sent to the ISS and compared to the microbes astronauts find up there! Announcing the finalists and winners of the SciStarter Citizen Science Contest presented by Instructables and Discover Magazine! Check out the nifty solutions this DIY community came up with to help solve some real challenges presented by citizen science project organizers"

JOURNYS | Journal of Youth in Science - 0 views

  •  
    "The Journal of Youths in Science (JOURNYS) is a completely student-run science publication featuring original research, reviews, and op-eds from youths under age 20. Unlike most science magazines, JOURNYS provides the unique opportunity for students, themselves, to get published. Filling the gap between professional science journals and magazines written for younger children, JOURNYS allows student authors to expand their existing knowledge and readers to gain appealing and useful insights from their peers."

Journal of Emerging Investigators | JEI is a scientific journal for middle and high sch... - 0 views

  •  
    The Journal of Emerging Investigators is an open-access journal that publishes original research written by middle and high school students in biological and physical science. JEI provides students, under the guidance of a teacher or advisor, the opportunity to submit and gain feedback on original research and to publish their findings in a peer-reviewed scientific journal. Because grade-school students often lack access to formal research institutions, we expect that the work submitted by students may come from classroom-based projects, science fair projects, or other forms of mentor-supervised research.

Robonaut: Home - 0 views

  •  
    "The first humanoid robot in space was sent to the space station with the intention of eventually taking over tasks too dangerous or mundane for astronauts, and the first such task identified for it was monitoring air velocity. Astronauts onboard the space station generally have to measure the air flow in front of vents inside the station to ensure that none of the ventilation ductwork gets clogged or blocked. The task involves holding a gauge in front of vents in five different locations on the station and taking several measurements of the air flow every 90 days or so."

New take on 'X' plane wins NASA grant - 0 views

  •  
    "Cleared for Mach 2 after departure, this supersonic jet of the future would yaw 90 degrees and put a new set of wings into the wind. The brainchild of Ge-Chen Zha of the University of Miami, the "supersonic, bi-directional flying wing" recently landed a $100,000 NASA grant to continue development of a concept that could cut the New York to Tokyo travel time to four hours-and perhaps significantly faster than that, Zha said."

    "The laboratory will provide online access to data from real physical instruments and equipment - developing cutting-edge technology including: remote access to laboratories and observatories: students can operate real physical equipment controlled remotely - a method already established in astronomy virtual laboratories and instruments, such as the virtual microscope: interactive screen experiments will include photo-realistic recordings of physical experiments and replicate the behaviours of real specimens online field investigations: these can involve electronic access to a conventional field trip or offer a virtual experience using satellite-borne and remotely-operated sensors citizen science: a distributed way of gathering data, where non-professionals collect or process data as part of a scientific enquiry. This data can be combined to offer new insights.

Toughened silicon sponges may make tenacious batteries - 0 views

  •  
    Researchers have found a way to make multiple high-performance anodes from a single silicon wafer. The process uses simple silicon to replace graphite as an element in rechargeable lithium-ion batteries, laying the groundwork for longer-lasting, more powerful batteries for such applications as commercial electronics and electric vehicles.

Phil Plait's Bad Astronomy: Home Page - 0 views

  •  
    "The Bad Astronomy web pages are devoted to airing out myths and misconceptions in astronomy and related topics. At the moment, I have no desire to tackle here such thorny topics as astrology, alternate views of the universe that are clearly in contradiction to observations, and the like. I may add something like that eventually, when I have more time (translation: "never"). "

    Here is seventeen minutes of remarkable video on research into autonomous robotic helicopters. It is extremely fascinating but a little "deep" in some portions. There seems to be no limit for learning and application.
