Fantastic Voyage
Topic: Robotics & A.I.
Summary: For both scientists and artists in the field of nanotechnology, making tiny airplanes and flower-like designs on scales smaller than the width of a human hair showcases the large promise of thinking small.

Follow the Sun
Topic: Robotics & A.I.
Summary: This is the second in a series of articles on a research project, Life in the Atacama, that recently began in Chile's Atacama desert. This article will focus on the innovative Hyperion rover that is being used in the project, a rover designed to travel for great distances, collecting scientific samples along the way.

Topic: Robotics & A.I.
Summary: Estimating the frequency for communicating with an extrasolar civilization is a multi-dimensional challenge. The answer, according to two scientists at the Hungarian Astronomical Association, is less like an equation, and more like a matrix.

Featherless Bipeds
Topic: Robotics & A.I.
Summary: In the featured "Dinner with..." series, Astrobiology Magazine looks at the possibilities for computers to emulate complex human patterns. The father of artificial intelligence and Nobel Laureate, Herbert Simon, gives a short course in life.

Breeding Computer Code
Topic: Robotics & A.I.
Summary: When biologists and computer scientists meet, their hybrid projects have produced intriguing models for evolution. A team of Michigan State and Caltech scientists report in Nature on their method of breeding computer code to mimic some features of evolutionary theory.
