Top 30 Science Ideas in February

From Robotic Martian Scouts to Revolutionary Asthma Vaccines

— February 22, 2015 — Tech
The winter season is the perfect time to focus on health, which is exactly what many of the examples in this collection of February 2015 science ideas touch on. Of course, health is a recurring concern in the field of science, yet asthma and allergies is a current theme that ties in with the upcoming weather transition into spring.

In addition to health,a theme of exploration runs through the collection of February 2015 science ideas. Specifically, space exploration. With new robots created to scout Mars and virtual technology to grant people an otherworldly experience, scientists are continuing to push the boundaries of their research. There is even a workshop by the European Space Agency addressing the need to clean up the Earth's orbit.
