Implication sfor astronauts and satellites — ScienceDaily

It might sound like something from a science fiction plot — astronauts traveling into deep space being bombarded by cosmic rays — but radiation exposure is science fact. As future missions look to travel back to the moon or even to Mars, new research from the University of New Hampshire’s Space Science Center cautions that the exposure to radiation is much higher than previously thought and could have serious implications on both astronauts and satellite technology. “The radiation dose rates…

Upon further review: Mizzou’s Maschmann lands award

Matt Maschmann, assistant professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at MU, recently was tabbed as one of the top reviewers of the journal Nanotechnology by its publishing company, IOP Publishing. All reviewers of peer-reviewed journals in their field have views about what makes a person a good reviewer. Many different factors go in to making someone skilled at providing constructive feedback and deciding whether or not a paper should be placed in a journal of prestige. And whatever that certain…

From Milking Cows to Writing Code: A Dreamer’s Journey

I still remember the night when my dad led me and my siblings across the border. As we walked through a bunch of trees, I was told to cover my face with my arm. I only felt the branches hitting me, but the next morning I noticed that my arms were covered in little thorns. If I were to say, “I came to the U.S. at the age of ten,” I would be lying. In reality, I was brought here.…

Footage shows how drones can boost turtle conservation

By providing new ways to track turtles over large areas and in hard-to-reach locations, the drones have quickly become a key resource for scientists. The research, led by the University of Exeter, also says stunning drone footage can boost public interest and involvement in turtle conservation. “Drones are increasingly being used to gather data in…

#PressForProgress – International Women’s Day 2018

Almost a year ago, I began my journey in the tech industry at a growing company called Cloudflare. I’m a 30-something paralegal and although I didn’t know how to write code (yet), I was highly motivated and ready to crush. I had worked hard for the previous two years, focused on joining a thriving company where I could grow my intelligence, further develop my skill set and work alongside successful professionals. And finally, my hard work paid off; I landed…

Robotic fish can ‘see’ and mimic live fish — ScienceDaily

For more than a decade, biomimetic robots have been deployed alongside live animals to better understand the drivers of animal behavior, including social cues, fear, leadership, and even courtship. The encounters have always been unidirectional; the animals observe and respond to the robots. But in the lab of Maurizio Porfiri, a professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering, the robots can now watch back. Porfiri and a team of collaborators tapped advances in real-time…

3-D printing of living cells

A tube with an outer diameter of approximately 15 mm and a modular internal architecture is printed in one step, by depositing core-shell alginate microparticles onto a rotating substrate. The nozzles are just visible in the top of the image. Credit: C.W. Visser and T. Kamperman Using a new technique they call “in-air microfluidics,” University of Twente scientists succeed in printing 3-D structures with living cells. This special technique enable the fast and ‘on-the-fly’ production of micro building blocks that…

A new family of aerodynamic configurations for hypersonic airplanes

Credit: Science China Press Hypersonic vehicles, which fly at Mach values larger than five (flight velocity more than 6000 km/h), could provide more convenient and efficient transportation than present subsonic airplanes for long-distance journeys in future. Typically, it only takes a couple of hours to fly from Beijing to New York at hypersonic speeds. Recent interest in these vehicles has grown, and various innovative designs have been proposed and studied. Despite entering the age of hypersonic flight, there still exist…

Engineer says new study forces researchers to rethink how elderly break their bones

University of Utah mechanical engineering assistant professor Claire Acevedo. Credit: Dan Hixson/University of Utah College of Engineering. To better understand why many elderly people are prone to break a bone in a fall (known as bone fragility fractures), perhaps doctors and researchers should look at the human skeleton in much the same way civil engineers analyze buildings and bridges, according to a new study from a University of Utah mechanical engineering professor. A team of researchers led by U mechanical…
