lecithin writes: "Spaceflightnow has a story regarding a puzzle to astronomers and geologists. What makes mars magnetic? If you could pick up a rock from the surface of Mars, then the chances are it would be magnetic. And yet, Mars doesn't have a magnetic field coming from its core.

Gugo writes: "German based company FESTO had develop a bionic arm. The difference? It uses muscles emulation, with a product called "fluidic muscle". Is like a normal animal-human muscle but moved instead of blood by air running inside. The capabilities of this muscle are rapid response,small size,very simple to assembly and easy to control.
