Obstacles to Overcome Before Operating Fleets of Drones Becomes Reality

Iowa State University

The technology exists to replace a single remote controlled drone with an automated fleet, but an Iowa State researcher says there are several obstacles to tackle first. He is part of a team developing models to efficiently operate a fleet, while maintaining security.

How to Defend the Earth from Asteroids

American Physical Society (APS)

The Chelyabinsk meteor caused extensive ground damage and numerous injuries when it exploded on impact with Earth’s atmosphere in February 2013; to prevent another such impact, Amy Mainzer and colleagues use a simple yet ingenious way to spot these tiny near-Earth objects as they hurtle toward the planet. She will outline the work of NASA’s Planetary Defense Coordination Office this week at the APS April Meeting in Denver -- including her team’s NEO recognition method and how it will aid the efforts to prevent future Earth impacts.

CubeSats Prove Their Worth for Scientific Missions

American Physical Society (APS)

Only a few years ago, the astronomy and heliophysics communities were skeptical about whether CubeSats could reliably obtain scientific data. But these breadloaf-size satellites have proven their ability to return useful data. During the APS April Meeting 2019, Christopher S. Moore will describe how the twin Miniature X-ray Solar Spectometer CubeSats measure soft X-rays from the Sun. These were the first solar science-oriented CubeSat missions flown for the NASA Science Mission Directorate.

‘Snowball Chamber’ Helps Researchers Use Supercooled Water to Search for Dark Matter

American Physical Society (APS)

After watching YouTube videos of people supercooling water in a bottle and then triggering it to freeze by banging it, something about this concept solidified for Matthew M. Szydagis, an assistant professor of physics at the University at Albany, State University at New York, especially when he saw it again during the Disney movie “Frozen.” During the 2019 American Physical Society April Meeting in Denver, Szydagis will describe how this inspired him to explore whether a subatomic particle like dark matter can trigger the freezing of supercooled water.
