I'm fascinated with the advances in metamaterials, which have largely focused on man-made nanotech materials. Peacock feathers and butterfly wings are some naturally occurring biological metamaterials.I'm wondering about biological acoustic metamaterials. Could toothed whales' fatty melon lipid structures actually be an…See More

Posted on January 16, 2009 at 9:20am 0 Comments

A recently published National Academy of Science report says:



"Each year, tens of millions of Americans, young and old, choose to learn about science in informal ways -- by visiting museums and aquariums, attending after-school programs, pursuing personal hobbies, and watching TV documentaries, for example. There is abundant evidence that these programs and settings, and even everyday experiences… Continue

The birth control pill in the 60's allowed us shift our species' hormones and triggered a sexual revolution. Our understanding of DNA and the human genome… Continue
