JHHS Students Go Weightless

microgravity

Students from Jackson Hole High School are on their ways to Florida to participate in the High school students United with NASA to Create Hardware Extreme Science Micro-gravity Experiments there as part of an engineering capstone project. These experiments are to be conducted on the micro-gravity plane at the Johnson Space Monday. The team is using ferro fluids made with a paraffin wax carrier so that the substance is solid at room temperature, but can be shaped into a part when melted. The three-dimensional part they planning to create is to be done within a microgravity environment.  The objective of the project is to design an experiment that could help astronauts mold replacement parts in zero gravity.  The engineering campstone project is part of a Project Lead the Way program designed to get students interested in science and engineering.

On defense, the Cowboys top priority is to stop the run.  With a talented quarterback […]

    A weak ridge of high pressure will build over the region today, which will allow temperatures to become warmer and closer to average statewide.  However, some lingering low-level moisture and daytime heating could trigger a few hit or miss thunderstorms for the afternoon and early evening hours.  Gusty winds and lots of lightning will be […]
  • GPS will sometimes lead you to astray - August 29, 2014
    At the risk of sounding like I’ve been watching too much Top Gear, I need to go off on a bit of a rant right now. The good folks at Nissan let me drive a Titan for two full months, which was really nice of them. And it’s done a pretty good job of filling […]
