The big 5-0!
On September 9th, 1964… the Hall of Science was officially opened as an attraction for the 1964-65 World’s Fair and a permanent museum thereafter. 50 years later it’s still a go-to place for families, a resource for students and teachers, a career development center for youth, and an all around fun place!
Way to go NYSCI! Keep going strong!

Here at NYSCI, we’re pretty familiar with the parts found inside the eye, and we have all gotten our fair share of questions that could have been saved for the optometrist.  Have you ever wondered about those weird worm-like specks that drift into your vision, then keep reading.

Those squiggly lines usually show up when you look at something really bright like the blue sky, or a white piece of paper. Those guys are called floaters, and they’re actually just shadows. As the cow’s eye dissection can attest, there is a glob of jelly-like goo that fills up the interior of the eye called the vitreous humor. This is where the floaters are located.

The purpose of the vitreous humor is to help the eye to stay round, and to keep the retina flat against the back of the eye. When light focuses through the different parts of the eye like the cornea and the lens, it must also pass through that gel to get to the retina. The floaters, that form when proteins in the vitreous clump together, often get in the way of the light that is projected onto the retina. Once the light is blocked, a shadow will be cast, resulting in the cobweb-like bits we see.

We all have ‘em, but only about 70% of people actually pay attention to the floaters in their eyes. They’re always there, but your brain tends to ignore them because it’s gotten used to them. Y our brain is pretty good at seeing around the floaters, the same way it ignores the way your nose blocks your vision. It’s very rare, but there are some severe cases of eye floaties that require the vitreous humor to be extracted and then replaced with saline liquid.

On Friday August 22, 2014 the Explainer Blog Team took a trip to Tumblr Headquarters! Having never gone before, we were all super excited to meet the staff and get some insight. 

We met Katherine Barna, Betsy Cannon, Sarah Henochowicz and Janice Chang. These women told us about their backgrounds and how they attained jobs at Tumblr. It was super inspirational to hear their stories!

As a team we had many questions about how to create a more beneficial blog for our readers and we got a lot of advice that we are excited to use. Our tumblr experience was topped off with goodies and a tour of the Headquarters!

We look forward to planning a better experience for our readers and if you have any suggestions, please feel free to message us!

Scientific Skele-Gro

Broken bones heal pretty well on their own. The only thing doctors really have to do is set the two pieces in line to ensure the bones grow back at the right angle. But certain injuries or defects leave too wide of a gap for new bone cells to fill in.

At Hogwarts, injuries like these would require Skele-Gro, the magical potion from the Harry Potter universe that’s known for it’s dreadful taste, and it’s ability to regrow “vanished or lost” bones. To regrow bones in the real world, our best technique been bone grafting. This process involves taking bone from a different part of the patient’s body and using it to fill in the gap.

This method doesn’t always work. Grafts don’t allow us to fit the complex shapes that bones come in, and sometimes the grafts don’t take. It’s still waiting on FDA approval, but thankfully, the newest method to regrow bone doesn’t involve a potion of any kind.

This idea relies on a biodegradable sponge seeded with human bone cells. Once the memory foam is formed into the proper size and shape, it is fit into the gap. It serves as a scaffold for the healthy bone to grow, but disappears once it’s replaced by solid bone.

It’s years away, but this biodegradable sponge could be a huge boost for reconstructive surgery.

Puff, the magic fish

We’ve all heard about dolphins and their intelligence. We know they’re extremely social, they communicate with each other, they live in large familial groups, but we’ve recently learned that they found a way to “get high.”

Interestingly enough, they aren’t the only animals who do it. Horses eat hallucinogenic weeds, elephants get drunk on overripe fruit, sheep love narcotic lichen, and dolphins have puffer fish.

Dolphins have been filmed gently tossing a puffer fish back and forth among themselves. They use just enough force to scare the puffer fish into releasing a neurotoxin usually used as a defense mechanism. Ingesting this secretion puts dolphins in a trancelike state, which they clearly enjoy. Even this behavior is a social one in which groups of dolphin gather to partake in the puffer fish toxins.

These findings came from a BBC documentary called Spy in the Pod. Researchers were able to capture this and other social behaviors of dolphins using cameras disguised as turtles and squids.
