Step by Step to the Perfect and Sustainable Pavement

Empa, Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology

The one ideal asphalt for all conditions does not exist: Climatic conditions, traffic frequencies and loads place different demands on the pavement. Another challenge: preparing old asphalt so that it can be used for new pavements. Thanks to Empa researchers, the design of the ideal asphalt for every type of road has finally become easier.

Putting Bacteria to Work

Argonne National Laboratory

Bacteria are diverse and complex creatures that are demonstrating the ability to communicate organism-to-organism and even interact with the moods and perceptions of their hosts (human or otherwise). Scientists call this behavior “bacterial cognition,” a systems biology concept that treats these microscopic creatures as beings that can behave like information processing systems.

Origami-Inspired Device Enables Easy Capture, Release of Delicate Underwater Organisms  

University of Rhode Island

The open ocean is the largest and least explored environment on Earth, estimated to hold up to a million species that have yet to be described. However, many of those organisms are soft-bodied — like jellyfish, squid, and octopus — and are difficult to capture for study with existing underwater tools, which all too frequently damage or destroy them.
