  • Bacteria-Killing Virus Teams Up with Animal Immune Response to Cure Acute Infections

    The rise of antibiotic-resistant superbugs poses a serious public health threat.  In response, scientists and clinicians are exploring alternative ways to cure bacterial infections that are untreatable by antibiotics. One approach is to use bacteria-killing viruses – also known as bacteriophage, or phage.

  • Searching for Science in the Solar Darkness

    For hundreds of years, scientists and historians have used solar eclipses to learn more about the nature of the sun and how it effects Earth. That will continue on Aug. 21, 2017, with Georgia Tech researchers joining the search for answers as the path of a total solar eclipse stretches across the U.S. 

  • Ants Build Sinking Eiffel Towers When Trying to Escape

    Fire ants use their bodies to construct Eiffel Tower-looking structures when they run into a tall obstruction while looking for food or escaping to new areas. A new study suggests that they build these structures without a leader or coordinated effort. Each ant wanders around aimlessly, adhering to a certain set of rules, until it unknowingly participates in the construction of a tower several inches tall.
