The muscles are made of a compressible skeleton and air or fluid medium encased in a flexible skin, and are powered by pressure difference. The muscle motions are programmed based on the structural geometry of the skeleton. Multi-directional motions can also be programmed into the material. Artificial muscles can also grip, lift, and twist objects. A variety of materials and fabrication methods can be used to create low-cost artificial muscles.

Thanks to observations of galaxy redshifts, we can tell that the universe is EXPANDING! Knowing that the universe is expanding and how quickly its expanding also allows us to run the clock backwards 14 billion years to the way the universe began - with a bang.

Haben Girma was the first deafblind student to graduate from Harvard Law School. Today the Eritrean-American fights for better education for deafblind people worldwide. FULL TRANSCRIPT (AND TEXT DESCRIPTION) [Video opens with photos of African women and lively music. Music ends with the words: ‘Women of Africa: Africa’s Unsung Heroes’ under the BBC logo] [Screen now shows Haben sitting in a chair in her office] Haben says: “My mother grew up during the 30 years of war in Eritrea, where Eritreans struggled to gain independence from Ethiopia. And when she was 16, she took the very dangerous journey, walking three weeks through the deserts of Eritrea. And then a reparatory organisation helped her come to the United States.” [Screen now shows text on black background, reading:] Haben Girma Lawyer Haben, 27, was born in the US after her mother fled Eritrea as a refugee in the early 1980s. She was the first deafblind student to graduate from Harvard Law School. Haben is now a lawyer with the non-profit group Disability Rights Advocates in California. [Screen now shows Haben with her dog, walking down the street then walking past the reception desk at her workplace, Disability Rights Advocates. Then we see a photo of Haben with an older woman and man, wearing her graduation gown and holding a certificate. Followed by a photo of Haben being awarded her graduation certificate]. Haben says: “I am an attorney here and I grew up facing access barriers as a deafblind person, and that inspired me to become a lawyer. And when I first started at Harvard Law School, there were very few deafblind attorneys. I couldn't turn to older deafblind individuals and ask. I had to figure it out a lot on my own. So graduating from Harvard Law School says a lot about what can be done when people have the right attitude.” [Screen now shows text on black background, reading:] One of Haben’s priorities is to help deafblind people communicate through better access to technology. [Screen now shows Haben, pictured with her assistant who is typing while she uses her digital braille display.] Haben says: “There are so many forms of communicating information. And if we’re creative and open-minded, we’ll find those forums. I use a digital braille display and QWERTY keyboard for communication. The braille display shows in digital braille, mechanical dots pop up to form braille letters. And, as I am reading, my assistant Chris types on a QWERTY keyboard when there are conversations going on.” [Screen now shows video clip of President Obama walking onto stage to applause.] [Screen now shows text on black background, reading:] Haben met President Obama at the White House to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act. [Screen now shows Haben sitting in her office. Then photos of Haben Girma with President Obama, who is typing her a message on a keyboard while she uses her digital braille display.] Haben says: “At the White House celebration of the 25th Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, President Obama met with me and he used alternative technologies to communicate with me.” [Screen now shows video clip of President Obama giving Haben a hug and then typing “I couldn’t type a hug” to which she says “I prefer real hugs to types hugs!” Both laugh.] Haben says: “That sends a very empowering message - it reminds the rest of the United States and the world that having an inclusive attitude ensures that people with disabilities can contribute their talents to society.”
