In findings that could mean better robots and prosthetics, Georgia Tech researchers show it is biomechanically possible for flamingos to stand and even sleep on one leg with little muscle effort.
She was recruited for her athletic skills in diving, but Madison Young also showed her academic A-game while at Georgia Tech.
What can microorganisms teach us about climate change? Plenty, because microbes respond, adapt, and evolve faster than other organisms. Scientists can discover how microorganisms will change because of global warming more quickly than is possible for complex organisms. Understanding how microbes respond to climate change will help predict its effects on other forms of life, including humans.
