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.

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

Graduate students at the 2012 Energy@Stanford & SLAC conference participated in an unusual contest to identify the most effective tactics to combat climate change. The contest was based on a simulation tool called En-ROADS that allowed the students to enter different values for a variety of factors that could influence the global climate in coming decades-- for example, an increase or decrease in renewable energy sources, traditional fossil fuel use,carbon taxation or deforestation. The students were divided into 26 teams. Each group entered specific values to create a realistic scenario for lowering the Earth's temperature by 2100. Four teams were chosen as finalists, and a panel of Stanford energy leaders selected the winner. For more information visit: http://energy.stanford.edu or ht...
Their 70-hour flight proves that small teams with modest budgets can use inexpensive, latex balloon to conduct serious high-altitude atmospheric research.
At Stanford's 123rd Commencement, Bill and Melinda Gates, co-chairs of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, urged graduates to change the world through optimism and empathy. Truly connect with the poor and sick, they advised, and channel those experiences into making the world a better place.

CINCINNATI (Tim Hedrick and Scott Dimmich) -- Something is brewing in the Pacific Ocean; it happens every once in a while and it will affect weather patterns around the world. Its an El Nino. People may have heard the term, but do they really know what it is? It's real, El Nino will, more than likely, affect the winter and weather across the globe. El Nino is part of the natural cycle of the Pacific Ocean. Easterly trade winds pile up water in the western pacific. The warm water is replaced by cold water near South America and Mexico. The result is rising air and rains in the west near Asia. At the same time theres sinking air and calm in the east near Mexico and the US west coast. With El Nino, a chain of events weakens the trade winds and warm water piles up in the central and eastern pa...
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.

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.
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.

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!
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!

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.”
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.
Tested's science editor Kishore Hari teams up with Stanford engineers to launch a weather balloon to photograph Earth from the edge of space. Adam helps Kishore design a balloon payload that pays tribute to space capsules, and the team utilizes the Honda Ridgeline to set up their midnight launch and thrilling retrieval. #sponsored #featuresnotstandard #HondaRidgeline Find more work from the Night Crew Labs team at: https://www.nightcrewlabs.com https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCFlPPS5FlY84ll8nrgpabBw
