Dance stories

 
Every year, Science and AAAS team up to sponsor a contest inviting PhD students from around the world to explain their theses through dance. This year's winner was a four minute performance on the evolution of nanostructural architecture in 7000 series aluminium alloys during strengthening by age-hardening and severe plastic deformation. Jazz hands!
 
You don't want to miss this video of synchronized robots dancing to Michael Jackson's "Thriller." Built by Aldebaran Robotics and programmed by MIT's Patrick Bechon and Jean-Jacques Slotine to get down in unison (using quorum sensing), these NAO robots are quite a coordinated bunch.
