• Stanford researchers isolate underlying causes of extreme weather

    A new study co-authored by Stanford and Princeton University researchers finds that trends in atmospheric circulation patterns can partially explain Earth’s increasingly severe weather. While scientists had previously surmised that the link existed, robust empirical evidence was lacking. Read more: http://stanford.io/1dsRsMu

  • Stanford students launch high-altitude rocket from a balloon

    Two Stanford aerospace majors, Daniel Becerra and Charlie Cox, won a grant to push the limits of amateur high-altitude exploration using a scientific balloon and a custom-designed rocket. The final launch was a success: their rocket launched at 30,000 feet in Kern County, California, and soared to 45,000 feet. All systems checked out perfectly.

  • At Stanford, Susan Rice talks about climate change and national security

    Speaking to an audience at Stanford, U.S. national security adviser Susan Rice called for global and U.S. action on climate change. Extreme weather is an urgent and growing threat to America's security, contributing to warfare, refugee flows and conflicts over basic resources like food and water, said Rice, who is the former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations. It is especially challenging for less developed countries where resources are already scarce, she said. "Today, we face no greater long-term challenge than climate change," said Rice, adding that it is not a distant problem that humanity can avoid tackling any longer. "The science is not up for debate.”

  • Inside the Superhuman World of the Iceman

    Wim Hof first caught the attention of scientists when he proved he was able to use meditation to stay submerged in ice for 1 hour and 53 minutes without his core body temperature changing. Since then, he’s climbed Mount Everest in his shorts, resisted altitude sickness, completed a marathon in the Namib Desert with no water and proven under a laboratory setting that he’s able to influence his autonomic nervous system and immune system at will. Almost everything Wim has done was previously thought to be impossible - but he’s not a freak of nature. To demonstrate that any human can learn his methods, Wim offered to teach Matt Shea and Daisy-May Hudson to climb a freezing cold mountain in their shorts without getting cold. But when Matt and Daisy signed up for the training, they had no idea...
