NASA's One-Year Mission video miniseries highlights metabolic investigations that help improve biochemical processes, cardiovascular responses and integrated immune functions of astronauts.
The Innovative Technology Partnerships Office (ITPO) at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, signed a five-year Cooperative Research and Development Agreement with YYESIT LLC of Baltimore to co-develop a product that will offer an innovative way to provide monitoring, interpreting and reporting activities against safety and quality protocols, with an initial focus in the area of safety and quality compliance.
By analyzing pre- and post-flight interviews, video recordings and questionnaires, investigators were able to determine that high-quality communication (no delay) resulted in high performance and mood. Mood then decreased during tasks that included a delay.
The first US mission to return samples of an asteroid to Earth is another step closer to its fall 2016 launch, with the delivery of three cameras that will image and map the giant space rock.
Companies spent $323 billion on research and development performed in the United States during 2013, 6.7 percent more than the $302 billion they spent the previous year.
Researchers at the Department of Energy's Argonne National Laboratory will be testing the limits of computing horsepower this year with a new simulation project from the Virtual Engine Research Institute and Fuels Initiative that will harness 60 million computer core hours to reduce those uncertainties and pave the way to more effective engine simulations.
NASA satellites, computer modeling, instruments, aircraft and field missions provide valuable information to help scientists better understand tropical cyclones and Hurricanes like Katrina.
A smartphone app that makes texting and emailing much easier -- particularly for older people and those who have difficulty spelling -- has been created by University of Strathclyde researchers.
Griffith University's Australian Rivers Institute has been announced as the new headquarters for a world-leading sustainability program tackling issues including water scarcity, water quality and the human impact on water systems.
The Biodesign Institute at Arizona State University and Pohang University of Science and Technology (POSTECH), Pohang, South Korea, have announced a partnership that will catalyze discoveries with a major impact on health care and clean energy applications. Scientists at both universities will work together to outfit a powerful new facility, the X-ray Free Electron Laser at the Pohang Accelerator Laboratory (PAL-XFEL), to discover and understand important biological molecules for new health care and renewable energy research.
