• 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.

  • Stanford Students Tackle Climate Change

    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...

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.”

I play Miley's ribcage with my dick like it's a Xylie-phone Yes, that was highly fucked up but my skills are highly honed And if I was highly hyphy I might be more widely known C'est la vie. Better pay my fee They kick it in Seattle in a Patagonia jacket, they get it in the Bay in a plain white tee Hey mami! You a PYT! Wanna see me speak? Then I go (go) go (go) go (go)! Every time I get a beat I know I gotta beat it up, I bend it then I break it then I chop it and I eat it up, And PETA would never approve of the way I've been treating the music, I bleed it, I bruise it, I kick it to the curb and then I'm sipping on my bourbon I be freakin it doing it, keeping it moving I'm picking apart the muscle when I'm thinking about the hustle but I'm nice. Nice! Chorus Verse 2 I'll jump the freeway median, I'm savage Cause my mode is that I'm meaner than the average Like my teacher taught me when I heard the crowd applaud I thought I was an atheist until I realized I'm a God It could hurt a bit when I murder shit in a moment I'll be tying off a tourniquet When I burn em and I hit em in the sternum, I don't even gotta enter but I'm gonna win the tournament That's what I'm all about. Do what I gotta do and never gonna pout And I hope that it woulda been the end of it and i'm out, but they never tend to gimme the benefit of the doubt Ever since I was a little I kid I know that I've been looking for the hot hot spotlight And if you really wonder what I think about the competition, they were not not not tight I been reading my scripture. Every photobomber wanna be in my picture And ya betta bet i'm living every single day like it's the mothafuckin Catalina Wine Mixer Bada bing bada boom, when I walk in I'm the king of the room And I get it locked in like a king in a tomb, when I spit a toxin and they cough on the fumes Cause I'm back in the nick of time and attacking a fickle mind I'm a jackal I'll rip his hide I'ma tackle him, pick a fight, I be Dracula set to bite in the black of the bitter night and I'm out.

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 pacific. Mike Halpert with the NOAA Climate Prediction Center said, "When the ocean warms in the eastern part of the basin we see the patterns of rainfall that are typically in the western part of the basin over by Indonesia and over north Australia shift. Instead of raining over Indonesia, it's now raining over the dateline. Or it could be raining over the entire eastern part of the basin." That's the west coast of South America. It could rain north to California and the southwestern United States. During the 1997 and 1998, the last El Nino winter, the US saw very heavy rains and significant storms over the entire west coast. That results in flooding, landslides, and footage of houses sliding off the coast into the Pacific Ocean. That's like a worst case, but something officials have seen with stronger events. With a strong El Nino pattern, drought can be a problem in the Caribbean. Southeast Asia, eastern Africa, western Canada and eastern Austrailia can also have drought problems. El Nino makes these areas prone to wildfires and the ecosystem can be disturbed leading to low crop yields and high crop prices. When the entire pattern of heat that goes into the atmosphere is changed it leads to impacts across the globe. No two El Ninos are the same, but a strong El Nino will tilt the odds of something different than normal, sometimes weather far from normal.

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.

While our moon does cancel out some tugging from the other planets in the solar system, here's a recent paper shows that moonless planets can orbit with great stability even without the influence of a moon.

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.”
