A team from the Georgia Institute of Technology observed the world's largest land mammal suck up rutabaga, draw chia seeds out of water, and pick up large tortilla chips without breaking them, the scientists reported in the Journal of the Royal Society Interface.

Mark Prausnitz has developed patch vaccines for flu and measles, but the technology could be used for a COVID-19 vaccine as well.

Georgia Tech scientists have been experimenting with a patch that would present an alternative to needles when it comes to vaccines for the likes of flu, measles and even coronavirus.
06/02/2021 - 10:45
Vaccine patches have already been developed for the flu and measles by researchers at the Georgia Tech. They could soon be developed for coronavirus vaccines since efforts are underway.

David Hu at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta and his colleagues observed zoo elephants as they used suction power to manipulate a variety of items.
06/17/2021 - 20:53
Scientists have now discovered that they can apply suction in their trunks (similar to the way a vacuum cleaner works!) to pick up tiny fragile pieces of food!

Extreme suction helps elephants hold water and food in their trunks, allowing them to inhale at speeds nearly 30 times the rate at which we exhale air when we sneeze.
