Editor’s selections: chimps with tools, moon-bases, shrinky dink science, and earthquake predictions

Editor's Selections 12 Comments
By Dr. SkySkull

skyskull “Dr. SkySkull” selects several notable posts each week from a miscellany of ResearchBlogging.org categories. He blogs at Skulls in the Stars.

  • Uncovering the “Chimpanzee Stone Age”. First, from Brian at Laelaps we have a discussion of stone tool use in chimpanzees — and the archaeology of such tool use!
  • Will the Moon mess up a moon-base? For all the talk of setting up a base of operations on the Moon, it is quite easy to forget that it is a relatively hostile environment.  Emma at we are all in the gutter discusses clever attempts to evaluate damage to equipment that was left behind on our previous visits.
  • Shrinky Dinks Thermoplastics: Toying With Cutting Edge Research. In a technological advancement I would never have seen coming, Robert at Promega Connections discusses a new, potentially easy and inexpensive, technique for performing microfluidic research.  The inspiration for the work is Shrinky Dinks!
  • Science predicted the Chile’s Earthquake. Finally, Pablo of Astu’s Science Blog, who experienced the earthquake in Chile firsthand, explains how science predicted the force and the location of the earthquake remarkably well.

Check back next week for more “miscellaneous” suggestions!
