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
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
Their 70-hour flight proves that small teams with modest budgets can use inexpensive, latex balloon to conduct serious high-altitude atmospheric research.
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.

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!

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.

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.”
Stanford-India Biodesign fellows discuss the Indian approach to innovation, how they selected a medical need to focus on and how two popsicle sticks and a spring can improve pacemaker implantation.
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.
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.
