Animal behavior and movement can be followed and tracked with human-level accuracy by a new deep learning algorithm. This technique doesn't require tracking markers or arduous manual analysis. In this video, we see the algorithm track a mouse as it sniffs out an odor.
Tracking Animal Movement with Deep Learning

Citrus fruits contain small pockets of liquid which burst upon contact releasing a jet of strong smelling oil into the air. The strong smell is designed to attract animals to the site to help to spread the seeds of the fruit as far as possible. Andrew Dickerson at the University of Central Florida has recorded the squirting motion using high speed cameras to try to understand the exact process of these 'micro-jets' of citrus oil.WATCH NOW
Aerogels are the world's lightest (least dense) solids. They are also excellent thermal insulators and have been used in numerous Mars missions and the Stardust comet particle-return mission. The focus of this video is silica aerogels, though graphene aerogels are now technically the lightest.
