Exciting change is on the way! Please join us at nsf.gov for the latest news on NSF-funded research. While the NSF Science360 page and daily newsletter have now been retired, there’s much happening at nsf.gov. You’ll find current research news on the homepage and much more to explore throughout the site. Best of all, we’ve begun to build a brand-new website that will bring together news, social media, multimedia and more in a way that offers visitors a rich, rewarding, user-friendly experience.

Want to continue to receive email updates on the latest NSF research news and multimedia content? On September 23rd we’ll begin sending those updates via GovDelivery. If you’d prefer not to receive them, please unsubscribe now from Science360 News and your email address will not be moved into the new system.

Thanks so much for being part of the NSF Science360 News Service community. We hope you’ll stay with us during this transition so that we can continue to share the many ways NSF-funded research is advancing knowledge that transforms our future.

Watch where you're going: Research uses algorithm to more efficiently see around corners

Scientists at Stanford University are imagining a system that can produce images of objects hidden from view. Previous research has already investigated methods for bouncing lasers around corners to capture images of objects; however, this research advances the field with its extremely efficient and effective algorithm developed to process the final image. The team is continuing to work on this system, so that it can better handle the variability of the real world and complete the scan more quickly.
