Evolution In Action - Science Nation

Professor Lawrence Gilbert and his team at the University of Texas at Austin have discovered a population of tropical butterflies that exemplify evolution in action, and a rare research opportunity. Gilbert says they may be witnessing a species of butterfly splitting into two different species. The stars of this research are the Heliconius butterflies, found in Central and South America. Despite the genetic similarities between the two groups of the butterflies, one group is showing a color preference during mating. ...

Spray-on Solar Panels - Science Nation

Chemical engineers at the University of Texas in Austin are researching new spray-on applications for photovoltaic panels. With support from the National Science Foundation, Brian Korgel and his team are testing out nanoparticle inks that are designed to be painted on rooftops or the sides of buildings. The technology is not yet at the same levels of efficiency as standard, commercial photovoltaic panels, but Korgel expects some commercial uses for his research within three to five years. And, because they ...

Orangutan Copy Cats - Science Nation

Copying what others do is a familiar human trait; whether it's the latest teen craze in fashion or the way many of us, at any age, are eager to follow the crowd. With support from the National Science Foundation, primatologist Marietta Dindo is researching how this copycat trait is shared by our primate cousins, specifically orangutans at Zoo Atlanta. When Dindo offered a novel way to open a box to get a snack, orangutans copied the behavior almost 100% of the ...

Digimorph: Bringing Fossils To Life - Science Nation

High tech x-ray scanning equipment has opened up a whole new world to scientists studying delicate specimens such as fossils, skeletons and ancient manuscripts. It's called high resolution X-ray computed tomography, and it essentially allows researchers to see the inside of a fossil in 3D without actually disturbing the fossil. The scans are conducted at the Digital Morphology Library at UT Austin, part of the National Science Foundation's Digital Libraries Initiative. One recent example of scientific discovery that would not ...

Virtual Self - Science Nation

As our fascination and passion for avatars increases, researchers are investigating the influence of our virtual world characters on our real world lives. For example, if your avatar starts jogging to get into shape and begins to look thinner, how might that influence your desire to exercise or lose weight in the real world? With support from the National Science Foundation, Jeremy Bailenson is researching the power of avatars on our bodies and minds through a number of studies at ...

Virtual Reality Maps - Science Nation

The ancient city of Rome wasn't built in a day, but now that city, along with all its famous landmarks, can be digitized in just a matter of hours. Computer scientist Steven Seitz and his team at the University of Washington Graphics and Imaging Lab are developing a new computer program that combs through hundreds of thousands of tourist photos on Flickr and other photo sharing sites and reconstructs the city -- pixel by pixel. Now, viewers can fly around (...

Disappearing Red Shrimp - Science Nation

Molecular biologist Scott Santos and his team at Auburn University are studying an unusual and endangered ecosystem in Hawaii called Anchialine pools, as well as one of its legendary creatures. A threatened ecosystem, Anchialine pools are inland lava depressions found near the ocean that feed off fresh water aquifers. Little is known about the creatures and plants that live in these brackish waters, but a number of the lava pools are being destroyed by invasive species and development. With support ...
