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. Read about their work - and other projects sponsored by undergraduate research grants - here: http://stanford.io/1wZtk6R
Watch as members of Stanford's Axe Committee participate in the 'Big Countdown', a tradition as they camp out for 120 hours leading up to the 120th Big Game. Every hour they blow their train whistle to countdown to the game against their rival, the California Golden Bears.
Their 70-hour flight proves that small teams with modest budgets can use inexpensive, latex balloon to conduct serious high-altitude atmospheric research.
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

(February 4, 2010) Stephen Schneider, professor of biology at Stanford and senior fellow at the Woods Institute for the Environment, unpacks the political and scientific debates surrounding climate change. This course was originally presented in Stanford's Continuing Studies program.

To actually integrate autonomous vehicles into everyday life, researchers need to teach the cars how to make the safe driving decisions that come intuitively to human drivers. Stanford engineers are conducting experiments to translate social behavior into algorithms so that self-driving cars will maintain vehicle safety and passenger comfort.
More than 3,000 family members representing some 1,700 families braved the sometimes rainy weather for Stanford's annual Parents' Weekend. Provost John Etchemendy welcomed the visitors in Memorial Auditorium to kick off the weekend's activities, which includes faculty lectures, open houses, tours, an "entertainment extravaganza" and receptions.

Unprecedented hurricanes brought torrential rain and wind that devastated many parts of southeastern Texas and Florida. Monsoon flooding inundated entire neighborhoods in India, Bangladesh and Nepal. Meanwhile, wildfires combined with record-breaking heat waves that blazed across the Western US. And that was just last month’s headlines. While millions of people deal with the aftermath of these disasters, US EPA head Scott Pruitt told CNN that now was not the time to discuss the role of climate change in these extreme weather patterns. Climate scientists say otherwise. For Katharine Mach and Miyuki Hino, climate scientists at Stanford University, it’s time for us to address climate change head-on. Their advice: we don’t have to be sitting ducks. By taking collective action now, we can be ...
"To have passion for anything you do, you must have love for humanity and love for a service or product," said Prince Kofi Amoabeng, CEO of UT Bank Ghana. During his talk at Stanford Graduate School of Business on October 16, 2014, Amoabeng described how he launched his business with an initial investment of only $6,000 and how he has since grown it to a multimillion financial services firm. The event was hosted by SEED and the GSB Africa Business Club. Learn more about the Stanford Institute for Innovation in Developing Economies (SEED): http://stanford.io/1zfbljR
The best way to survive a car accident is to avoid collisions in the first place. Professor Chris Gerdes' engineering students are developing algorithms and pop-up obstacles that could lead to safe autonomous driving.

Kicking back and watching a little basketball here in the US where the "March Madness" college hoops tournament is a big sporting event. What do we hear? Weather Report's Birdland with some great playing by the Kansas Jayhawks band - playing the Stanford Cardinals. Certainly Birdland! Check those trumpets playing a solid, high "F" Unfortunately for Kansas it didn't pull the team through. It was a close finish to the end!
I launch a radiosonde or weather balloon, and look at what's going on in the atmosphere with a PhD researcher in meteorology! Radiosondes are collections of instruments that scientists attach to big balloons and then launch into the atmosphere. They normally get about 30-40km up before the balloon bursts, so they provide a large amount of useful data about the state of the lower atmosphere. In this video follow myself and Dr Marlton as we talk about what the balloon is telling us about the sky! I was super lucky to be given a chance to visit the University of Reading to give a talk and film some experiments - thanks very much to James Shaw and the Meteorology department (http://www.met.reading.ac.uk/) for hosting me. There are a couple more videos from this trip coming out, though I doub...
I played a trick on my math class for April Fool's Day. In this one, I'm showing a "homework help" video that gets some trigonometry wrong. How embarrassing!
Stanford celebrated its 126th Commencement weekend June 16-18, 2017. Mariano-Florentino Cuéllar, associate justice of the Supreme Court of California, encouraged graduates to bridge divides and engage in public service in the Commencement address Sunday in Stanford Stadium.
In June 2013, a group of friends launched a high-altitude near space balloon a few miles from Tuba City, Arizona. The amazing footage of the Grand Canyon area was LOST, then found two years later by an Arizona hiker. Enjoy the video of our launch preparations, flight footage, and some data analysis of the flight. Max altitude: 98,664 ft (30.1 km) Time of flight: 1 hour, 38 minutes Payload: GoPro Hero3, Sony Camcorder, Samsung Galaxy Note II phone. The GoPro and camcorder were recording video footage, while the phone was taking still images. Music: Matt Corby - Brother (Kygo Remix) - Creative Commons License 3.0 We formed a new high-altitude group!

CENSORSHIP UPDATE: YouTube censored this video to stop it going viral, freezing its view counter as it spread like wildfire across the web. (Thousands of shares on Facebook, front page of DavidIcke.com, disclose.tv and dozens of other outlets.) To stop it from trending, YouTube froze the counter at 6,101 from 0700 Pacific, 5-13-15 until 1900 Pacific 5-14-15, then held it at 6,401 for another nine hours until 0400 Pacific 5-15-15. Sort the comments by "Newest first" and you'll see plenty of commenters calling YouTube out on their shameless truth suppression. But what do you expect from a company with a killer robot division? I've a question for all the shills: So if you found out the chef at your local restaurant was in a closed door meeting debating which was the best poison to put in the...
A device the size of a peppercorn can activate neurons of the brain, spinal cord or limbs in mice and is powered wirelessly using the mouse's own body to transfer energy. Developed by a Stanford Bio-X team, the device is the first to deliver optogenetic nerve stimulation in a fully implantable format.
