The experiment demonstrated in this ZOOMSci video segment--wearing an old sock through a grassy or weedy field, planting the sock, and watching what grows--will not only give young scientists a better idea of the kinds of plants growing in their area, but will also help them begin to think about the evolutionary strategies of plants. Closed captioning included. Run time 03:00.

Pneu Scooter: Motor Testing
Here are two of the first test-spins of the custom pneumatic wheel-motor for my latest scooter project. The motor is a three-phase brushless outrunner, designed for about 1600rpm at 33V and a peak torque of about 5ft-lbf. The controller is also custom, a 48V/1kW field-oriented synchronous AC drive that still has some software? glitches to work out. More info: http://scolton.blogspot.com/search/label/scooter.
Vector Fields and Hydrodynamics
At first glance, replacing the old idea of action at a distance by the new idea of the field of force seems to e an exercise in semantics. But it isn't, because fields have definite properties of their own suitable for scientific study. For example, electric fields are different in form from magnetic fields, and both kinds can better be understood by analogy to field of
