Endangered corals get their own sperm bank
Sun, 08 Dec 2013 09:17:00 -0500Dec. 8 - Faced with an alarming loss of coral on Australia's Great Barrier Reef, scientists in Queensland are building a coral sperm bank to protect as many species as possible against extinction. A 2012 study estimates the reef has lost more than half of its coral cover since 1985, and the researchers fear that if the trend is not reversed, the sperm bank may be its last hope. Sharon Reich reports.
'Robo-frog' - the robotic romeo who gets the girl
Fri, 06 Dec 2013 09:08:00 -0500Dec. 6 - A robotic male frog has helped researchers unveil the mysterious nocturnal mating habits of Panama's tungara frog. 'Robo-frog' was recruited to woo potential mates and shed light on the species' romantic rituals. Jim Drury reports.
Jellyfish-power prepares for lift-off
Wed, 04 Dec 2013 14:27:00 -0500Dec. 4 - Drone developers are increasingly attempting to mimic the flight mechanics of birds an insects for the next generation of miniature, autonomous aircraft, but one researcher in New York, has found inspiration in the sea. Leif Ristroph of New York University is developing a robot that replicates the pulsating motion of the jellyfish as an alternative drive system for future drones. Sharon Reich reports.
Three-way ant warfare a lesson in co-existence
Tue, 03 Dec 2013 11:58:00 -0500Dec. 3 - Research showing how fungus-farming ants allow parasites to pillage their crop and eat their offspring, in exchange for offering protection against an even more brutal enemy, is offering clues into co-evolution between species. Jim Drury reports.
Hadrian's villa brought back to life online
Tue, 03 Dec 2013 08:05:00 -0500Dec. 3 - Students of ancient Rome can now immerse themselves in the world of Emperor Hadrian, who ruled the Roman Empire from 117 to 138 A.D.

Throat organ reveals depth of koala love
Mon, 02 Dec 2013 12:21:00 -0500Dec. 2 - During mating season, the male koala makes itself known to potential mates with a deep, extended bellow that reverberates through the bush. Scientists have long wondered how such a small animal can make such a big sound but they need wonder no longer. As Rob Muir reports, a UK-based researcher has found the answer.
Physics students a-maze with Leidenfrost effect
Fri, 29 Nov 2013 13:11:00 -0500Nov. 29 - A metallic maze which demonstrates the so-called 'Leidenfrost effect' could help inspire the development of a new wave of non-electric thermostats. In physics, the 'Leidenfrost effect" allows water droplets to travel upwards on heated surfaces, a phenomenon scientists in the UK believe could become the basis of new engineering systems. Jim Drury went to see it in action.
Hydrogen power flexes muscles at LA Auto Show
Wed, 27 Nov 2013 14:28:00 -0500Nov. 27 - Japanese car-maker Honda has unveiled a hydrogen-powered concept vehicle that it says represents the future of emissions-free driving. Honda and other car-makers exhibiting at this week's Los Angeles Auto Show, say that with sufficient infrastructure investment, hydrogen fuel cell technology could replace conventional batteries in powering electric vehicles. Ben Gruber reports.
Lab-made mouse pancreas brings hope for diabetes cure
Wed, 27 Nov 2013 10:42:00 -0500Nov. 27 - A cure for diabetes could be a step closer, following successful experiments in mice to turn immature embryonic cells into cells that produce insulin. Danish researchers created miniature mouse pancreases using progenitor cells taken from embryos, and believe the same scientific principles could be applied to help the 382 million people world-wide affected by diabetes. Jim Drury reports.
