If microbial life exists elsewhere in the solar system, wouldn't we like to actually see it on the move? Bioengineers are already testing a new scope—in extreme environments a bit closer to home—that could capture the 3D videos to make that possible.

A new class in bioengineering debuted this term at Caltech: "Exploring Biological Principles Through Bio-Inspired Design." On June 4, teams of two to three students presented their bioinspired creations to each other and to the professors, postdocs, and TAs who worked with them over the course of the term.
