Bionic Legs Help Paralyzed Man Walk

Hayden Allen, who had been told he would never walk again after injuring his spinal cord in a motorcycle accident, can now stand, walk, and even go up and down steps thanks to a pair of robotic legs. The revolutionary invention, dubbed Rex (Robotic Exoskeleton), has allowed Allen newfound mobility at home and work, as well as provided him with health benefits associated with spending less time in a wheelchair. Further details and video available at Mail Online.

Meet the Eyeborg

Canadian filmmaker Rob Spence has replaced his own false eye with a miniature, battery-powered video camera. The bionic eye, built with the help of an MIT cyborg expert, can record everything it sees in real time by transmitting wirelessly to a computer. Spence hopes to use the camera-eye to capture people engaged in "truer" conversations than traditional handheld camera work allows. More details and video at Telegraph.co.uk.

Solar Music

Astronomers at the University of Sheffield in England have recorded music generated by the Sun. The eerie sounding harmonies are produced by the coiling magnetic fields from the star's outer atmosphere, which vibrate like strings in a piano. Using satellite data, scientists converted the visible vibrations into sound and sped up the frequency so humans could hear it. Listen to the solar music at Telegraph.co.uk.

Exoplanet Bonanza

NASA's new Kepler space telescope has found more than 700 objects that could turn out to be planets in a distant region of our galaxy. The candidates range in size to that of Earth to larger than Jupiter, and some are part of multi-planet systems...

Skydivers & Space Shuttle

Phil Plait, the bad astronomer himself, has posted an extraordinarily cool photo of a group of skydivers falling in formation as the Space Shuttle Discovery rockets into space in the background (on its mission to place the Hubble Space Telescope into orbit). The Discovery will launch for its last time on September 16, 2010. More at the Bad Astronomy Blog.

Space Shuttle Replica

Hints of life on Saturn's moon

Scientists reveal they've found evidence of life on Saturn's largest moon, Titan. New data from the Cassini spacecraft show hydrogen depletion near the moon's surface and an unexpected lack of the organic molecule acetylene in the atmosphere, leading researchers to believe microbes may be consuming them. NASA's Chris McKay proposed such a theory in 2005. Still, scientists emphasize the findings are not proof of life... yet. More at New Scientist.

The Laser Turns 50

Fifty years ago Sunday, Hughes Labs researcher Theodore Maiman changed the world when he built the first working laser. Today, lasers can be found almost everywhere and are integral in many industries, from information technology (fiber optic networks) to health care (LASIK eye surgery) to home entertainment (CDs, DVDs, and Blu-ray discs). In fact, it is estimated that half of America's gross domestic product is somehow connected to lasers. More at InsideScience.org.

Meet the Nano-Spiders

Researchers at New York's Columbia University have created a molecular robot, dubbed a 'spider,' that can crawl along DNA molecules. The spider bot measures a mere four nanometers across -- 100,000 times smaller than the width of a human hair. Such microscopic devices could one day be used to clear clogged human arteries or build computer components. More at Mail Online.

Jupiter Loses a Stripe

Scientists are perplexed as to why Jupiter has lost one of its trademark dark bands that stretch across its atmosphere. Known as the Southern Equatorial Belt, its disappearance is possibly related to storm activity.
