Glenn To Perform Purdue Soybean Experiment In Space
...y a mid-deck locker about the size of a large safe deposit
box (18x12x7 inches). Given the short amount of preparation and the lack of available background information, Vierling says he is cautiously optimistic about the success of the experiment. "Something like this has never been performed in microgravity...

urine and feces at specific sites along the coast, known as latrines. The researchers found that plants at latrine sites had larger concentrations of Nitrogen than those off site. They also discovered that the concentration of Nitrogen in plants lo...
'Auditory Scene Analysis' Helps Find Mates
...midshipman fish has to choose one nest in which to deposit
her eggs. When a humming male succeeds in attracting a female, he fertilizes her eggs, which adhere to the rocky ceiling of his nest. The female leaves forever, and the male resumes humming in hopes of attracting another female with more eggs. Wond...
