Profiles in Coding: Christabelle Bosson, Uber Elevate, San Francisco

Uber Elevate takes Uber’s pioneering transportation technology to new heights with urban aerial ridesharing. In its mission to make aviation a part of everyday transportation, Uber Elevate is building an all-electric aerial mobility ecosystem that will bypass congestion on the ground and enable more seamless and efficient transportation of people and goods between cities and suburbs. To turn this vision into a reality, the Elevate team is working with aircraft manufacturers to manufacture electric Vertical Takeoff and Landing aircraft (eVTOLs)…

Security Must Run from Inception to Deployment

Applied Materials said that it faced supply chain constraints in the second quarter related to the coronavirus crisis that weighed on its revenue and carved into its profits. But the company said it hopes to recover the revenue in the second half of the year as the supply chain rebounds and contract chip makers push ahead with plans to upgrade fabs. The company’s sales leaped to $3.96 billion from $3.54 billion a year ago, as demand from contract chip manufacturers offset its supply…

How did structures in early universe form? Unusual galaxy set to prompt rethink on how structures in the universe form — ScienceDaily

Astronomers have captured an image of a super-rare type of galaxy — described as a “cosmic ring of fire” — as it existed 11 billion years ago. The galaxy, which has roughly the mass of the Milky Way, is circular with a hole in the middle, rather like a titanic doughnut. Its discovery, announced in the journal Nature Astronomy, is set to shake up theories about the earliest formation of galactic structures and how they evolve. “It is a very…

Researchers develop real-time physics engine for soft robotics

Sequence of a simulation showing a soft robot with seven flexible limbs planning its forward motion. Credit: Khalid Jawed/UCLA Motion picture animation and video games are impressively lifelike nowadays, capturing a wisp of hair falling across a heroine’s eyes or a canvas sail snapping crisply in the wind. Collaborators from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) and Carnegie Mellon University have adapted this sophisticated computer graphics technology to simulate the movements of soft, limbed robots for the first time.…

The oldest molecular fluids in the solar system could have supported the rapid formation and evolution of the building blocks of life — ScienceDaily

The oldest molecular fluids in the solar system could have supported the rapid formation and evolution of the building blocks of life, new research in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences reveals. An international group of scientists, led by researchers from the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) and co-authors from McMaster University and York University, used state-of-the-art techniques to map individual atoms in minerals formed in fluids on an asteroid over 4.5 billion years ago. Studying the ROM’s…

NASA to demonstrate first in-space manufacturing for space mirrors

A Goddard engineer won a flight opportunity to show that an advanced thin-film manufacturing technique called atomic layer deposition, or ALD, could apply wavelength-specific reflective coatings on a sample — the first time ALD has been tried in space. Credit: NASA/W. Hrybyk Large telescopes that could be used for detecting and analyzing Earth-like planets in orbit around other stars or for peering back in time to observe the very early universe may not necessarily have to be built and assembled…

Fiber optics capture seismic signatures of the rose parade — ScienceDaily

Yes, there’s a prize for the most beautiful flower-filled float in the Rose Parade each year, but how about a prize for the most ground-shaking marching band? According to a new study, the 2020 honors go to the Southern University and A&M College, followed closely by the hometown Pasadena City College Honor band. These bragging rights and other interesting signatures of the Rose Parade were captured by fiber optic telecommunications cable lying below the parade route. In Seismological Research Letters,…

Manring Named Interim Dean of the College of Engineering

COLUMBIA, Mo. – University of Missouri Provost Latha Ramchand today announced that Noah Manring, the Glen Barton Professor and chair of the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, has been named the Interim Dean of the MU College of Engineering. He will begin interim dean duties immediately and join outgoing Dean Elizabeth Loboa in decision making to provide for a smooth leadership transition. “Over 23 years at MU, Dr. Manring has actively pursued his passion for engineering research and education…
