Hurricane Sleuth - Science Nation

When Geologist Jeff Donnelly of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) hunts for hurricanes, he does it safely at ground level, or just slightly below. He is even able to do it without having to encounter so much as a drop of rain or a gust of wind. With funding from the National Science Foundation, Donnelly leads a team that studies long term global hurricane patterns. They travel to coastal areas where a hurricane's storm surge has washed over beaches ...

Monkey Business - Science Nation

Most of us can understand how we feel if someone else gets a better reward for doing the exact same work we did. Researchers are studying how these feelings of inequity evolved and if primates have the same sense of inequity. Researcher Sarah Brosnan has released a study helping prove that primates share similar feelings of inequity as humans and she will extend the research, with a five year National Science Foundation grant. In the next round of research, Brosnan ...

Turtle Gps - Science Nation

Sea turtles, salmon, and sharks sometimes travel the width of the ocean to return to their, breeding ground, to reproduce. With funding from the National Science Foundation, Biologist Ken Lohmann at the University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill studies the role magnetic fields play in these long distance migrations. In his lab he's done behavioral studies, manipulating environmental cues to see how young turtles respond to even small changes in magnetic fields. His findings are already being put to ...

Cars Without Drivers - Science Nation

Meet Boss -- the car that can drive itself! Boss is the invention of Carnegie Mellon researcher Raj Rajkumar and his team. It has 18 sensors, including a three dimensional laser and onboard computers that connect to GPS and mapping software. When it comes to knowing the rules of the road, Boss rarely makes a mistake. With support from the National Science Foundation, it was built for a Department of Defense competition called the DARPA Urban Challenge. Boss negotiated the roads, ...

Herb, The Robotic Butler - Science Nation

His name is HERB and he's a robotic butler designed to open doors, clean tables and even retrieve your slippers. He doesn't look as human as his Japanese counterparts but HERB has a bigger brain according to its developer Siddhartha Srinivasa at Intel Labs located on the campus of Carnegie Mellon University. With funding from the National Science Foundation, HERB is being programmed to think and function on its own and to navigate unknown environments. So, if you tell HERB ...

Metal Foam - Science Nation

Afsaneh Rabiei is a materials engineer at North Carolina State University who, with support from the National Science Foundation, has developed metal foam that's lighter but much stronger than real metal. It's designed for use in biomedical engineering (stronger replacement body parts like knees and hips) car bumpers (a crash at 28 mph feels like an accident at only 5 mph w/ this material). Tests are now underway to use it as both body armor and vehicle armor for the military. For ...

The Solar Decathlon: Housing's Bright Spot - Science Nation

During October of 2010, taking a walk on the Mall in Washington D.C. might have been more like taking a walk into the future. Twenty solar-powered homes were sprawled across the mall's west end, transforming it from a park into something that resembled a quirky housing development. The homes were part of the annual Solar Decathlon, a collegiate competition for engineering and architecture students who must design these energy efficient homes of the future from the ground up. For more ...
