How about posting videos and articles on some exciting siency stuff?
I find some of these breakthroughs of todays scientists really exciting and it would be great to share what we find in one single thread!
So post any scientific news that you stumble over and find fascinating or interesting or awesome or simply jaw-dropping! :D

I'll go first.
I stumbled upon this TED-talk over at Youtube today.

Carbon nanotubes are insanely expensive to make, so don't get too excited.

Here is my video:

Poopsmith: Do you really think that the cost is gonna stop the future?
Everything from the future is insanely expensive. Mainly because its so rare and also because it might not even exist yet.
But eventually it'll be cheaper.

I'm fascinated by the pace at which we're making breakthroughs in genomics/proteomics. Almost every month there's something that would have gotten its finders the Nobel prize a few years ago.
Same thing with how the brain works.
And the way it's all coming together with computing technologies...

Add to that the fact that we might get definitive answers about the universe - both its structure and how it works - in the next five to ten years, these are exciting times!

That little bicycle riding robot is awesome. I am only sad that there is no link to buy one at the end of the video.

The march of progress and science is truely amazing and will hopefully benefit humanity and the planet in remarkable ways.

But, for now, I just want my tiny fucking robot that rides a bike.

And a miniature elephant. GET ON IT SCIENCE!

Manfred, you beat me to it with the cloaking, I just was watching that yesterday.

Anybody keep tabs on Boston Dynamics? The're doing some amazing stuff with biped and quadraped robots.

Biped (PETMAN):

Large Quadraped (AlphaDog):
