Green Roofs - Science Nation

These days it seems everything is going green. Now you can add green roofs to that list. A green roof is covered with a waterproof membrane, a growing medium (such as dirt) and vegetation. Environmentalists have long touted the benefits of green roofs, which they say include minimizing storm water runoff, cooling the environment, and helping to absorb CO2. Local governments have been paying attention to the claims. In New York, if you have a green roof you are eligible ...

Creeping, Crawling Caterpillars - Science Nation

It's likely one day there will be robots crawling around that look a lot like caterpillars! With funding from the National Science Foundation, Tufts Biology Professor Barry Trimmer is researching the neuromechanics of caterpillars, which involves observing how caterpillars crawl on very high tech force beam systems. Trimmer and his team study the caterpillars' climbing behavior - motion tracking and muscle physiology. The applications for this research include the development of soft-bodied robots for use in medicine, environmental safety, industry, ...

Cybersickness: A Virtual Bummer - Science Nation

With the success of movies such as Avatar and Alice in Wonderland and promises of 3D television just around the corner, 2010 might well be remembered as the year of 3D. But while many of us enjoy 3D technology, a few among us feel the need to look away. A number of neurological and visual conditions can cause someone to experience nausea. It's a type of motion sickness without the motion. Fred Bonato of St. Peter's College in Jersey City has ...

Hand Talk - Science Nation

James Woodenlegs first learned to communicate using Plains Indians Sign Language from his family, growing up on the Northern Cheyenne Reservation in Montana. Also known as hand talk, the language has been used by both deaf and hearing Indians from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico for at least 200 years, possibly much longer. Woodenlegs is working with sign language scholars Jeffrey Davis and Melanie McKay-Cody to document and preserve hand talk, one of thousands of the world's endangered languages. With ...

Trading Textbooks For Twitter - Science Nation

What are the benefits of social networks? Boston College Professor Jerry Kane has received an National Science Foundation career award to study the use of social media technology in the classroom and in business. In the classroom, he has experimented with using Facebook as a classroom meeting space (not best suited, he found) and now uses a class wiki. This semester he requires students to develop quality Twitter messages or Tweets to better understand the benefits. On the business side, ...

Got Silk? - Science Nation

Since the time of the ancient Greeks, humans have been using spider silk to dress wounds. Scientists now know spider webs not only have healing qualities, they can be stronger than steel! University of Wyoming Molecular Biologist Randy Lewis adds an almost science fiction aspect to the study of spider silk : making large quantities of it by, growing it, in goat's milk. With funding from the National Science Foundation, Lewis has cloned and sequenced genes for the proteins that make ...

"viswall" Opens Door To Many Worlds - Science Nation

A giant video screen that takes up an entire wall, floor to ceiling, is allowing scientists to see details they've never seen before. Developed at Tufts University with help from the National Science Foundation, the Visualization Wall has a variety of applications. For example, biologists can get up-close and personal with an eight foot tall DNA strand, material scientists or architects can roam the brick and mortar of ancient buildings. The VisWall offers a surgeon the opportunity to teach and ...
