Technology has neaver ceased its march forward. Welcome the Bionic Wheel Bot spider.

Professor Ingo Rechenberg a bionics processor at the TU Berlin, discovered the flic-flac spider or cebrennus rechenberg. Movement is always a problem with biological models and the BionicWheelBot is no different. Researchers have created two separate modes of movement. One for even ground and the other for uneven ground The bot employs arachnid like walking on uneven ground while switching into wheel mode for even ground to achieve top speed.

Professor Rechenbern and other researchers are transferring its movement technologies to the technical field to be adapted to other technologies likely military use.

In walking mode the artificial spider can handle uneven ground and overcome inclines of up to five percent uphill.

Have you ever wondered why the actor who has rehearsed the play perfectly just cant get it together during the actual performance? Or why the basketball player who shoots 94% from the line tends to miss the game winning shot from the stripe.

Then let’s look at the whys.

There are two types of memory Declarative memory which is when you can consciously recall information, or explicit memory that’s easily retrieved. And Procedural memory or muscle memory or instinctive memory.

Experts suggest when you see a guitar play that has played a rift over and over perfectly in practice and chokes at the performance it’s because he got in his own way. He over thought the situation, by forcing in the be a declarative memory vs. an implicit one.

Space teaches NASA. In the twins study, unexpected changes were made in the DNA and RNA of of Scott Kelly, while his brother Mike on earth remained.

During the 2018, Investigators Workshop for NASA’s Human Research Program, the first round of the twins study was released. The study tracked physical changes caused by time in space, down to the cellular level. The study proved space made changes in the DNA, to adjust to oxygen deprivation stress in the cells forcing Scotts’ “space genes’ to activate.

According to a recent article from an ABC affiliate, “Although 93% of Scott's genetic expression returned to normal once he returned to Earth, a subset of several hundred "space genes" remained disrupted. Some of these mutations, found only after spaceflight, are thought to be caused by the stresses of space travel.”

According to new research, its more important to chose a smart mother for your future noble prize winning son. Many men understood that an intelligent woman trumps an intelligent man and researchers conquer. Smart children should go home this afternoon and thank their mothers for transmitting intelligence genes. Technology points to “conditioned genes”. These genes have a biochemical tag that allows origin to be traced and reveals whether or not their are active withing the descendant cells.
