  Map of the universe years in the making
After 10 years of surveying the night sky, astronomers based in Australia have completed the most accurate view of our galactic neighbourhood.
  Rogue bug may cause IVF failure
Fluid near the ovaries may be harbouring to bacteria that reduces a woman's chances of becoming pregnant through assisted reproduction, says an Australian researcher.
  Technology decodes Alhambra inscriptions
Armed with digital cameras and 3D laser scanners, researchers have embarked on a mission to catalogue and decipher the words that adorn Spain's most-visited tourist attraction.
  Sonar causes deafness in dolphins
Loud, repeated blasts of sonar can cause a dolphin to temporarily lose its hearing, according to an investigation into a suspected link between naval operations and cetacean strandings.
  GM stem cells treat autoimmune disease
Mice with a human equivalent of multiple sclerosis have been successfully treated using genetically modified stem cells, say a group of Australian researchers.
  Nickel crash kick-started evolution
Life as we know it may owe its existence to fluctuating levels of a humble metal in the primordial sea, according to an international study.
  GPS inhalers track asthma triggers
An enterprising epidemiologist has combined GPS technology with a medical inhaler in an effort to better understand the triggers for asthma.
  Urban design turning kids off being active
Poor urban design and safety fears are critical factors in determining whether children walk or cycle to school, say Australian researchers.
  Cleaning up oil spills can be bad for fish
Chemicals commonly used to clean up oil spills make oil far more toxic to fish, particularly for eggs and young fish, according to new research.
  Fluoro sensors to monitor recycled water
Technology that uses fluorescence to pick up trace sewage contamination may help increase public confidence in recycled water, say researchers.
  First cloned camel born in Dubai
The United Arab Emirates has claimed its own version of Dolly the sheep, the world's first cloned mammal, after the birth of a cloned camel in Dubai this month.
