An unlikely automobile is bringing new meaning to the phrase “go fish.” Scientists put a fish tank on wheels to test whether goldfish (Carassius auratus) can navigate as well on land as they can in water. The goldfish go-cart uses the laser sensing technology lidar, an onboard camera, and motion detection software to track the fish’s location in the tank. When it swims toward a wall with its nose pointed outward, the vehicle rolls in the same direction.

Animals make camouflaging look easy. Some have static patterns that make them hard to spot, whereas others—such as chameleons—can change their colors and patterns at the drop of a hat. Now, researchers have developed a robot that can mimic a chameleon’s color-changing abilities and movement. Writer: Meagan Cantwell Footage: Kim et al.

Play Video: These carnivorous plants won the evolutionary jackpot


Carnivorous plants have evolved all kinds of traps and tricks to capture their prey, from the snapping jaws of Venus flytraps to the slippery walls of pitcher plants. Although we often think of evolution as a process driven by strong selective pressure and big payoffs, researchers recently found that doesn’t always have to be the case. Biologists Ulrike Bauer and Guillaume Chomicki describe how a springboard-like lid evolved independently in two different pitcher plant species on opposite sides of the world through a process they call spontaneous coincidence. **Dr. Guillaume Chomicki's current affiliation is at Durham University.

In one experiment, 170 U.S. participants listened to synthetic musical notes with timbres modeled after the bonang — a collection of small gongs played in a Javanese gamelan. The video tracks people’s pleasantness ratings for chords with these artificial bonang notes. The intervals that people identified as most pleasant did not align at all with Western mathematical rules for nice harmony — but did they did map pretty well onto a musical scale used in Javanese gamelan music, the slendro scale (marked in dashed lines).

Here, 196 U.S. participants judged the pleasantness of octaves played with synthetic musical notes. The video tracks how people’s ratings for chord pleasantness as the interval between the notes changes. As the interval approaches 12 — a supposedly perfect octave marked with a blue vertical line— pleasantness ratings spike. But they peak just before and after this “ideal” octave interval, when sound pulsates slightly. Read more: https://www.sciencenews.org/article/timbre-harmony-music-scales-culture Video: R.

Researchers have observed Japanese tits (Parus minor) fluttering their wings to noiselessly tell mates to enter the nest first. It is the first known case of symbolic gesture in a nonprimate animal.

A female Japanese tit perches on a branch and flutters her wings. Soon after, her mate enters their nest followed by the female. Similar observations of eight mating pairs suggest that fluttering happens only when birds are in the company of their mates. Because the fluttering is directed at the mate rather than the nest, scientists suspect that these birds are using gestures to communicate a complex message. This is a first in birds.

A human (left) and AI (right) collaborate to cook soup containing tomatoes (red and green objects) and/or onions (beige objects). In this case, the AI, but not the human, knows that the duo will receive a bonus if the human serves the soup. The second half of the video shows the result of a new training method in which an AI learns how to influence human behavior. Here, the AI has figured out that if it places a dish (white circle) next to the stove, the human will use it to deliver the soup, at the bottom of the screen.

The New Horizons space probe launched in 2006 with the primary objective of performing a flyby study of Pluto. On July 14, 2015, New Horizons caught its first glimpse of the dwarf planet, sending back to Earth a never-before-seen side of the far-out rocky body. #ScienceChannel #SpacesDeepestSecrets About Space's Deepest Secrets A few generations ago, traveling to the Moon was hard to imagine, and going beyond the Moon was a pipe dream. Today there is a new breed of explorer, tasked with going deep into space to unlock and reveal first-ever views of alien worlds and cosmic bodies far beyond anyone's imagination. These men and women have pushed their ingenuity and curiosity beyond the limits to uncover some of the most-groundbreaking findings in the history of space exploration.
