Berkeley Science News Round-Up
Being a Political Science major, I rarely venture near any science classes here at Berkeley, but I often find a lot of the research going on quite fascinating. Berkeley professors are doing some wild and crazy stuff with lasers and robots and other fancy stuff (sometimes I get a little bit worried about that whole "machines enslaving the human race" thing, but then I realize Will Smith will be around to save us). Ever so often I'll be posting a collection of recent science-related articles that feature Berkeley.
P.S. I always do my best to find articles that don't require any type of log-in or password to access, but sometimes newspapers will only have their articles available for a certain amount of time, and then you need to register with their site (almost always for free). If you ever get a link like that, I recommend using bugmenot.com. It's an easy to use website that has log-in names and passwords for almost every newspaper.
1. Regents approve bidding for Lawrence Berkeley national lab The saga continues. I hope we get it.
2. UC-Berkeley Researchers Using Nanotechnology To Study Environment Some fancy nanotechnology used to study nuclear waste disposal (with some scanning transmission x-ray microscopes, computerized tomography, and supercomputer modeling thrown in).
3. How the brain tunes out odors Brain scans are being used to determine how our brain deals with the constant over-abundance of smells we encounter.
4. Listening for ET Information on the researchers at UC Berkeley's Hat Creek radio observatory most likely to be listening if we ever hear from aliens.
5. Scientists begin to decode secrets of empathy "Researchers gather at Cal to learn latest on the mind, identity"Email This Post!
