From Urination to Georgia Tech's First Ig Nobel Prize
MetadataShow full item record
How long does an elephant urinate? How quickly does a dog shake? How many eyelashes does a camel have? Asking a new and sometimes strange question is arguably the most important step in advancing science, and not any less so if you study animal movement, a field at least as old as Leonardo da Vinci’s pioneering observations. Asking questions is not only fun, but can also lead to unexpected scientific discoveries. In this talk, I will discuss my journey with wacky science, how it led me from being peed on while changing a diaper, to this year’s Ig Nobel Prize.
