Now, this may sound kind of gross, but did you know you can estimate how long an animal has been dead based on the presence of maggots? OK, how about something a little less gross: A Texas industrial gas company has restructured its delivery system to work like a colony of ants, and it's saving money. Lots of it. You're invited to join us for a conversation about what humans can learn from bugs. It's the Sound of Science, Monday morning at nine.
