New Scientist wrote an article entitled Spiders for Mars about the Vibrating Retina project. In case their link goes down, here's a local copy of the article. I was very impressed with how well they represented the research, without any errors nor extreme glorification. 31 March 2001.
And then our fame spread, and "bild der wissenschaft" also wrote an article, with a local copy posted here. I've been told it's almost identical to the New Scientist article, but it's in German and I don't know German. 31 March 2001
