Science of the Week 2/11/11

Here are a few science stories I thought readers would find interesting or useful this week:

Figuring out the age of the mysterious Voynich manuscript
(this book sounds like something out of a fantasy novel, actually)

Microsponges from seaweed may save lives

Robots inspired by roaches


Enjoy your weekend!

I wish they had shown a sample of the writing in that article on the manuscript.

Very interesting.

When I was at uni, one of my profs had us design our own alphabet. It kind of sounds that's what the author of this manuscript did too.

Fascinating manuscript! The images of the pages are amazing.

Thanks for dropping by my blog. It's good to meet you, fellow crusader.
