Sperm Tracked in 3-D—A First

Corkscrew paths, "hyperactive" swimmers among reproductive rarities.





For the first time, scientists have successfully plotted the paths of sperm in 3-D, revealing corkscrew-like trajectories and "hyperactive" swimmers.
Based on a sensor chip not unlike those in smartphones and digital cameras, the new technology could lead to better male fertility testing and insights into the behavior of other microorganisms, researchers say.


Women shouldn't read this.....Men prepare to have your ego stroked ;


Tiny and fast—even for microorganisms—human sperm are notoriously difficult to study. Nevertheless the team trained their tool on the male reproductive cells rather than easier quarry. Why? Because "sperm is one of the most important microorganisms in life," study leader Aydogan Ozcan said.


On the other hand, the "most important microorganisms in life" is not how we treated it!

Lol. I think you might be on to something... Well maybe your right... Maybe it "hangs to the right for right handed people and same for left...

Sooo.... Maybe that's why so many swim to the right. Weird.

They say 70-90% of people are right handed.
