01. Golden Architects
Gold nanoparticles can be used to help cure diseases such as cancer, thanks to the researchers who make them, perhaps one day gold will really earn the price we pay for it.
03. The balance of life
A journey inside our cells to show us through didactic metaphors the importance of the balance between oxidation and reduction. Key molecular mechanisms for understanding many diseases and even our own aging.
05. A jewel of bacteria
A group from the Córdoba School of Sciences has discovered a bacterium in the Guadalquivir River that is capable of eliminating waste with cyanide and also producing a biodegradable plastic.
06. Virtual archeology
The Technological University of Honduras is making an Augmented Reality application that will allow visitors to the Mayan City of Copán, through their mobile devices, to have a unique experience interpreting and reliving scenes from the Mayan world today.
07. Coral keepers
The research team of Dr. Mark Hay, from the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, has found that the diversity of herbivorous fish that feed on coral reef algae is crucial to the conservation of these great barriers.
09. Bio-inspired systems
Based on the way in which groups of animals move, the team led by Dr. Enrique Alba from the University of Malaga has developed systems to improve traffic in cities.
10. Electro fetal
The study of signals not only improves telecommunications, this documentary shows how a group of engineers from Seville has managed to measure the electrocardiogram of the fetus through the mother's skin.
11. Allies and enemies
The group of Dr. Hikmate Abrihuel from the University of Jaén studies enterococci, bacteria that can be beneficial and harmful. Its results allow us to improve our health by reducing the use of antibiotics.
12. Sediment analysis
At the University of Cádiz, a group of researchers has managed to develop a system that allows us to know the environmental quality of marine sediments and propose management measures to improve our environment.
13. Smart templates
At the University of Granada they have developed insoles for footwear capable of analyzing movement and improving back problems in pregnant women and the results of elite athletes.
14. Invasive algae
Dr. María Altamirano from the University of Malaga, leads a team that has managed to learn the characteristics of an important group of invasive algae and thus allows us to anticipate their progress in order to preserve the wealth of our seabed.
15. Microalgae treatment plants
The research group at the University of Cádiz, led by Dr. José Antonio Perales, has developed a system capable of using microalgae to purify wastewater, eliminating even drug residues in addition to producing organic fertilizer.
16. Clean energy
In Spain we are at the forefront of renewable energy research, and proof of this are the results of Dr. Andújar's team from the University of Huelva, which proposes a totally self-sufficient and clean energy production system for cities.
17. Star Hunters
The Calar Alto observatory, in southern Spain, has equipment that places it at the forefront of the search for extrasolar planets. Worlds similar to ours that could host life.
18. Bioindicator mice
The team of Dr. Carmen Pueyo and Dr. Juan López Barea from the Córdoba Faculty of Sciences study Moorish mice (Mus spretus) from the Doñana environment as bioindicators of environmental quality. The cutting-edge techniques they use offer very important data for environmental management.
Putting science in images and making it understandable to all audiences is the objective of this series of short documentaries that shows first-line discoveries in all scientific fields and their protagonists.
