Bacteria Inspired Multi-Flagella Propelled Soft Robot at Low Reynolds Number

The locomotion of microorganisms inspires scientists to create soft robots actuated by flagella. However, nontrivial coupling between hydrodynamics, contact, and elasticity still requires a comprehensive numerical model. Image credit: arXiv:2111.12793 [cs.RO] A recent paper on arXiv.org presents a macroscopic soft robotic platform based on the propulsive mechanism of flagellated microorganisms and a physics-based computational framework to simulate the robot. The ...

Ice Peeks out of a Cliffside on Mars

The HiRISE (High-Resolution Imaging Science Experiment) camera on the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter has captured another beauty. This time the image shows water ice peeking out from a cliffside on Mars. A layer of sediment obscures most of the ice, but fingers of it are visible. Mars likely had ancient oceans, and the remnants of all that water are hidden as ...
