Scientists’ Model Reliably Forecasted Complex Earthquake Sequence

Scientists testing a newly created earthquake forecasting model said that the model reliably forecasted the time, location and strength of a complex Italian earthquake sequence. Their study, published in the September 13 issue of Science Advances, is the first to determine the accuracy of this model in a real experiment, and not just based on past data, according to author Warner Marzocchi of Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia in Rome, Italy.

Bats Have a Vertical “Blind Spot” When Using Echolocation

Bats are well known for their sophisticated use of sound waves and echoes to navigate through areas riddled with obstacles, but now a new study reveals that their use of echolocation can be hindered in the face of smooth vertical surfaces. The results , published in the September 8 issue of Science, may help explain why injured or dead bats are often found near buildings.

Invention Ambassadors Take On Society’s Challenges

Over the past few years, inventor Jason Kang says he has developed his love for the “tangibility” of inventing, while discovering the impact he can have on the lives of others. At age 23, he has been involved in three startup companies and has helped invent an additive for disinfectants to combat life-threatening infectious diseases such as Ebola more effectively.
