Science Nation - Robotic Arms

submitted by: nsf
Who do you call if you need a little help with some of life's more complicated tasks...like building a car, performing surgery, or even diffusing a bomb? The people at Barrett Technologies in Cambridge, Massachusetts are always glad to lend a hand, or an arm, or both, as long as they're robotic. Barrett Technologies is on the cutting edge of developing and implementing robotic technology. We'll head to Cambridge to rub elbows with some of the company's creations, and see how support from the...

submitted by: nsf

They moved from classroom to observatory to beach, learning about astronomy, video games and digital photography.

Twenty-one sixth- through tenth-grade girls from the San Francisco Bay area spent a week at "Universe Quest" Summer Academy, a camp promoting scientific exploration. Some of the girls have always been hooked on math and science, but for others, it's a brand new adventure.

Determining the Determined State : The Sizing of Size From Aside

submitted by: hsrikm
Science makes an unequal work of man/nature and man-as-nature/mature. It is postulated that legal/sociological rather than scientific interpetation, in determining the equalities and natural freedoms of individuals, have the greatest capability to steer towards logically valid and coherent world views in a modern setting where determined states of science theory are difficult to contend with for ethical judgement in light of unresolved paradox and a vast darkness in understanding of...

Personalized Medicine - 10th Dialogue on Science Academia Engelberg Foundation

We are entering an age in which the complete genome information of individuals will be readily available. The availability of this information will result in a paradigm shift in medical research and in health care, including diagnosis and prevention. Due to rapid advances in the sequencing technology, the costs to determine the full genome of an individual person will soon drop below 1’000 dollars. The promise of ubiquitous availability of personal genome sequences poses opportunities...
