Ice Stories:  Jakobshavn Isbrae Calving Timelapse, June 5, 2007 (Clip)
Running Time:
00:00:24
The Jakobshavn Isbrae is among the fastest-moving glaciers in the world. The Jakobshavn is an outlet glacier, one of the few places where the giant Greenland ice sheet can shed ice in the form of gigantic icebergs. This timelapse video by Jason Amundson of the University of Alaska Fairbanks shows one of these massive calving events. Notice the dark blue ice that surfaces when the iceberg flips over in the ice-choked Ilulissat icefjord.

Running Time:
00:30:48
Dr. Tejal Desai of UCSF talks about the intersection of nanotechnology and medicine, an area of research that has dramatic implications for the future. It could lead to artificially engineered tissues, or more effective drug delivery. It could also result in new kinds of health monitoring devices, as Dr. Thomas Murray, from the Hastings Center, explains.
