Turbulence is important in virtually all phenomena involving fluid flow, but completely describing it remains one of physics' major unsolved problems. MIT researchers have provided some clarity to this messy complexity. The researchers report that they have visualized for the first time a convoluted tangle underlying turbulence. Their work may ultimately help engineers design better planes, cars, submarines, and engines.

Insects may be useful models to understand more about metabolic dysfunction in humans. Penn State researchers found that parasite-infected dragonflies suffer the same metabolic disorders that lead to obesity and diabetes in humans. Their discovery links metabolic disease to a supposedly harmless parasite living inside the dragonfly and suggests the study of microbes found in human intestines may hold clues to the root causes of human metabolic dysfunction.

Fighting infection is an on-going battle that keeps picking up speed. Bacteria can adapt to new drugs very quickly, so the key is try and stay several steps ahead of the bugs -- exactly what researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison are aiming to do. They have discovered a clever method to test large numbers of molecules quickly and efficiently, offering hope for the discovery of new classes of antibiotics. This is one step forward on the long road to drug development.
