High-Tech Avalanche Research Team Helping to Create Better Ice Cream
I think making better ice cream is science we can all get behind – unless you’re lactose intolerant. Researchers at the Institute for Snow and Avalanche Research in Davos, Switzerland are working with Nestlé to devise better tasting ice cream. The Institute is using its high-tech equipment typically used for…

Debris Forces ISS Crew into Escape Ships
There’s suprisingly little empty space left in low Earth orbit these days. This is in part due to the ever-growing number of satellites orbiting the planet. Most of the debris orbiting the planet includes defunct satellites or chunks of satellites left from crashes with other satellites. Huge debris fields were…

Army Wants to Make Fat Soldiers Thin by Injecting More Fat Cells
One thing that Kung Fu Panda taught me is that portly warriors can still kick butt- skadoosh! The U.S. Army feels differently though and wants all of its obese soldiers to slim down, with very good reason. Overweight soldiers may not have the stamina to keep up with their skinnier…
