Inspired by fireflies, researchers create insect-scale robots that can emit light when they fly, which enables motion tracking and communication.
University of Cambridge researchers conclude, “The unusual behavior of sulphur in Venus’ atmosphere cannot be explained by an ‘aerial’ form of extra-terrestrial life, according to a new study.”
Using artificial intelligence (AI) for warfare has been the promise of science fiction and politicians for years, but new research argues only so much can be automated and shows the value of human judgment.
Researchers: In biology, getting rid of stuff can be just as important as making it. A buildup of cells, proteins, or other molecules that are no longer needed can cause problems, so living things have evolved several ways to clean house.
Researchers have untangled the intricate physics and neural controls that enable dragonflies to right themselves while they’re falling.
