NASA team begins testing of a new-fangled optic
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) t's an age-old astronomical truth: To resolve smaller and smaller physical details of distant celestial objects, scientists need larger and larger light-collecting mirrors. This challenge is not easily overcome given the high cost and impracticality of building and -- in the case of space observatories -- launching large-aperture telescopes.

$1.7 million grant to Wayne State will advance virtually guided weldability qualification
(Wayne State University - Office of the Vice President for Research) Wayne State University has received a $1.7 million grant from the Digital Manufacturing and Design Innovation Institute -- an institute of the National Network of Manufacturing Innovation -- for a project that will advance Resistance Spot Welding (RSW) weldability qualification environments. The project, VRWP: Virtually Guided RSW Weldability Prediction, will allow original equipment manufacturers and suppliers to rapidly converge to feasible welded assembly designs during the early stages of new product development.
