MY MASSIVE ROBOTIC NASA ARM

– FROM THE ARCHIVES – 1 Went to the mall today. Bought some boxer briefs and an Icee. Stopped into the arcade and lost to some punk kid at Street Fighter II. It’s hard for me to push the buttons at the right time. Shuttle Remote Manipulator Prostheses (SRMP) destroyed Street Fighter machine. 2 Saw a friend’s band play, alone. I wish someone else would have come with me. People don’t always want to talk to the guy with nine hundred pounds of space steel strapped to his body. Broke the arm of the lead singer when I gave him…

D.I.Y. P.C.R. NOTES, APPENDUM, SHOOTING THE BREEZE – WHATEVER

(This post will be updated from time to time, as improvements arise with regards to the MAKE magazine thermal cycler project. For more info, go here) – – – Date: August 25th We repeated the experiment with the 2C adjustment, but obtained similarily non-optimal data as before. This led to recalibrating of our temperture sensor at 0C and monitoring to see if the temperture cycles waiver at the latter cycles (i.e after the first 10 cycles), which was not the case. At that point, we decided to calibrate our temperature sensor in real time with the eppendorf cycler to see…

THE NUDE MOUSE – A SCIENCE CREATIVE QUARTERLY PIN UP (NO. 1)

(CLICK HERE FOR PIN-UP POSTER – pdf file ~250k) — We suggest photocopying at 129% – LTR to 11×17 — Earlier this week, we had the chance to sit down with a member of a growing army of naked bubble mice. In thousands of biology labs around the globe, these lab mice quietly do their part in the pursuit of science and medicine. Called Nude Mice, these striking creatures are a result of spontaneous inbreeding, natural genetic freak shows if you will. More importantly, they are bereft of both hair and immunity – things that would normally protect them from…
