It's been a shortened workweek for us here in the U.S., but there's been no shortage of amazing science and tech imagery--from a rat that regained the power of movement to shoes made from custom-bred, genetically engineered stingrays to a gorgeous shot of the Pinwheel Galaxy. More in the gallery!

What does this rat do, when he is not in this body harness and learning to walk upright?
With the rat having a broken back, I understand the extra support, but doesn’t the scientist allow the rat to walk on all fours?
After watching the video, the scientist seems to being doing a lot of development and experimenting with the rat walking on his hind legs. Why have the rat only walk on its hind legs, this is so unnatural for the rat?
