Babies’ Babbling Betters Brains, Language

Babies are adept at getting what they need – including an education. New research shows that babies organize mothers’ verbal responses, which promotes more effective language instruction, and infant babbling is the key.

Using the now-complete Cassini data set, Cornell University astronomers have created a new global topographic map of Saturn’s moon Titan that has opened new windows into understanding its liquid flows and terrain. Two papers, recently published in Geophysical Review Letters, describe the map and discoveries arising from it.

Puerto Rico Students Prep to Take Refuge at Cornell

Sixty-two students from Universidad de Puerto Rico (UPR) are getting ready to arrive at Cornell University by mid-January. They’re choosing classes and – almost as importantly – buying winter coats and long underwear online.

Fast Radio Bursts ‘Twists and Shouts’ Help Scientists Determine Source of Cosmic Blasts

An international group of astronomers has found that the Cornell University-discovered fast radio burst FRB 121102 – a brief, gigantic pulse of radio waves from 3 billion light years away – passes through a veil of magnetized plasma. This causes the cosmic blasts to “shout and twist,” which will help the scientists determine the source.

Physicists Build Muscle for Shape-Changing, Cell-Sized Robots

A Cornell University team has made a robot exoskeleton that can rapidly change its shape upon sensing chemical or thermal changes in its environment. And, they claim, these microscale machines – equipped with electronic, photonic and chemical payloads – could become a powerful platform for robotics at the size scale of biological microorganisms.

Research Reveals ‘Shocking’ Weakness of Lab Courses

With the new emphasis on hands-on, active learning throughout higher education, lab courses would seem to have an advantage – what could be more active than doing experiments? But surprising new research reveals traditional labs fall far short of their pedagogical goals.
