Studying Ant Nests (image) Georgia Institute of Technology Caption Georgia Tech researchers (l-r) Daniel Goldman and Michael Goodisman pose with a tube containing simulated soil used to study tunnels being made by fire ants. They are holding examples of nests made by the ants in the wild. The information could be useful in developing future generations of robots able to work in confined spaces.
