NASA Seeks Undergraduate Students to Defy Gravity for Engineering and Science


NASA is offering undergraduate students an opportunity to test experiments in microgravity aboard NASA's reduced gravity aircraft.

The opportunity is part of NASA's Reduced Gravity Education Flight Program, which gives aspiring explorers a chance to propose, design, and fabricate a reduced-gravity experiment. Selected teams will test and evaluate their experiment aboard NASA's reduced-gravity airplane. The aircraft flies about 30 roller-coaster-like climbs and dips during experiment flights to produce periods of weightlessness and hypergravity ranging from 0 g to 2 g.

PARC Forum: Adventures in Searchland, July 30, 2009

Alice

Date: Thursday July 30, 2009 4-5pm

Speaker: Dr Valeria de Paiva, Cuil, Search analyst

Location:
George E. Pake Auditorium, PARC,
3333 Coyote Hill Rd, Palo Alto, California, USA

Description:
Cuil launched with a lot of buzz and a product that is innovative to
the hilt. This was the beginning of an exciting (and bumpy) journey
over the unchartered territory of Searchland, part of the larger and
(to me) still mysterious continent of StartUpLand. In this talk I
will discuss this journey and the highlights so far.
