A cut lock doesn't augur well for one bicycle owner who parked at the UA Student Recreation Center, ranked as a top spot for bike thefts.
Elliot Montgomery hopes his hard work on a project while a student at the UA will make the campus a safer place.
Got a pencil? There's a good chance the "lead" you're using is
made of the world's thinnest substance: graphene.
A newly emerged Manduca sexta, or tobacco hornworm, enjoys a smack in a lab at the University of Arizona, where the moth will be used in research. Scientists want to learn how individual moths decide how to use their resources.
Manduca sexta, or tobacco hornworm, flies in a fly mill at the Davidowitz lab at the UA. The National Science Foundation's Faculty Early Career Development Program is helping fund research using the moth.
Turns out some moths are good for more than hogging the
lamplight or putting holes in your favorite sweaters. They may help
scientists answer an important mystery in evolutionary biology: How
do organisms decide to use their limited resources?
The Internet lets us watch television shows, connect with
friends and even have groceries delivered if we don't want to brave
the store. It's used for just about everything - but that doesn't
mean it's perfect.
Dave Newman e-mailed a village in Ghana last week to offer
advice about water pumps.
Volunteers with the UA chapter of Engineers Without Borders assist villagers in Ghana with rock sieves to help filter water.
Plastination scientist Joshua Lopez checks on two brains that are in the freeze-substitution stage, one of the first steps in the plastination process, at the University of Arizona School of Medicine's Plastination Lab.
Joshua Lopez gently peels transparent covering from a metal tray
in his lab. His actions are fluid, like he's undoing gift-wrap he
plans to reuse. He has good reason to be careful: Inside the
plastic bundle is a human head.
William K. Hartmann sees the big picture. Talk to him about his
varied interests - Spanish conquistadors, space artist Chesley
Bonestell, archaeology, the environment - and you'll see.
University of Arizona astronomer Laird Close understands the
value of double-checking your work.
Sun-like PZ Tel A and its orbiting brown dwarf, PZ Tel B, can be seen in this picture. For a size comparison, Neptune's orbit is shown. The PZ Tel system is an unusual star-brown dwarf pairing. (Image provided by Beth Biller and the Gemini NICI Planet-Finding Campaign)
Basilio Gonzalez, a 25-year Sun Tran worker, attended Wednesday's City Council meeting, which centered on the issue of transferring control of the bus line to the Regional Transportation Authority. No action was taken.
The full fleet of Sun Tran buses is rolling out again this
morning - seven days after workers went on strike and left the
transit system limping along at a fraction of its capacity.
If you're depressed, your internal wiring may not be the only
culprit. Local research suggests it might be more than biology.
