A few days ago I spoke to Harvard University in Cambridge had developed an artificial jellyfish with cells from rat heart , which has been made as well with silicone (other than their own heart muscle cells of the animal).
In a sense, with the arrival of summer is true that jellyfish become the classic enemies of the swimmers, especially during this year, as in many Spanish beaches have stung these annoying animals and a good number of people.
Hence, the CSIC has developed a monitoring system of jellyfish in order to:
How the system works to keep the jellyfish?
Scientists using buoys, which have been equipped with a GPS geolocation system, which monitors these invertebrate groups, in order to study them more effectively to develop systems that help not reach the beaches.
The buoys tend to follow the same route as the jellyfish themselves, since they move with the ocean current (as do these invertebrates).
Currently scientists are testing this system CSIC in Cadiz, so it is expected that with the data collected through it governments can take preventive measures in most Autonomous Communities (such as is the case Canary Islands).
