Bee Population Linked to Malnutrition

A declining bee population could have a negative impact on countries grappling with malnutrition. A recent study conducted by Rebecca Chaplin-Kramer, a landscape ecologist at Stanford University, examined the link between pollinators (mainly bees) and global health through the lens of nutrition.  Chaplin-Kramer, along with a group consisting of pollination […]

Orcas and Dolphins: Communicative Parallels

While it may incorporate visual and perceptive components, communication is primarily an auditory exchange between two organisms. Most species use a broad spectrum of words, sounds, grunts, and clicks used to communicate an even wider array of thoughts and emotions. Certain species, humans among them, can learn to mimic the […]

Uterus transplantation emerges as a potential cure for uterine infertility

A woman successfully gave birth to the world’s first child conceived from a transplanted uterus, demonstrating uterus transplantation as a potential cure to uterine infertility (1). The birth, which happened in early September and was recognized by The Lancet on October 5, marks the initial success of a study conducted […]

Electronic Skin: Saving Space, Saving Lives

It is a small patch placed on the skin, about as thick as a temporary tattoo, but with the ability to record heartbeat, muscle contractions, and brain activity in addition to tracking body movements and delivering drugs (1). The creation of “electronic skin” has been an area of immense interest […]

India 1-0 in Mars missions

On September 24 India’s Mangalyaan probe successfully fell into Mars’ orbit. Only the United States, the former USSR, and The European Space Agency have been able to reach Mars, making India the second current country to have done so. In addition, India has become the only country to reach Mars […]

Half of Earth’s Water Formed Before Sun’s Creation

A team of researchers led by astronomer L. Ilsedore Cleeves of the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor studying the origin of water in the solar system concluded that up to half of it formed before the sun was created(1). This result may suggest that water is more widespread in planetary […]

A New Way to Detect Plasma

On Tuesday, September 23, Juha Vierinen, a post-doc at MIT came to campus to give a talk on his work at the Haystack Observatory.  Vierinen works to take statistical measurements of our atmosphere. When most people think of the atmosphere, they don’t often think of plasma, but it is definitely […]
