A beryllium oxide (BeO) nuclear fuels research collaboration between Texas A&M University, the Texas Engineering Experiment Station (TEES), Purdue University and IBC Advanced Alloys Corp. has been selected to receive the Significant Contribution Award from the Materials Science and Technology Di…


The dog days of summer can quickly transform a car’s interior into an oven, but imagine an automobile with high-tech windows that block out the heat, keeping its interior cool to the touch. Such a product might be a step closer to reality thanks to research by Jodie Lutkenhaus, a chemical engineer…


NASA’s Space Technology Program has selected 14 proposals on commercial reusable suborbital launch vehicles for development and demonstration. Each idea was innovative in its own way, and one of these 14 proposals, "Demonstration of Variable Radiator,” was that of Dr. Richard “Cable” Kurwitz, lectur…
