If you want to see a lot more of what all NASA has been developing, read their publication, "NASA Tech Briefs", which offers a fair number of topics every month.

How disappointing.  I thought this was an article about Congress...

@Pubudu: What polythene is being tested from NASA itself ? Is it true ? I didn't know that. News for me indeed.

Very true Vimalkumarp, Evan the poithine that we use every day is also came out from the NASA research.

Vimalkumarp, I also believe in the same way. And also if they could communicate their findings it will be very helpful to the human being.

many of the products that we use and many of the technical marvvels ( consumer, medical devices) are the result of the fundamental research done at NASA. That is what i meant by mentioning the improvement of quality of life of common man,

@vimalkumarp - NASA is surely stretching the technological limits but you mentioned that it's improving the quality of life of a common man. I don't get that part.

Its a great news Charles. NASA has always been the one to go beyond the technical boundaries and investing in the right stuff. And surely wind tunnel acquires alot of power from the grid, but certainly it is nothing less than a necessity for analysing the aerodynamics of air crafts. It is great to see the technical advancement that NASA is contributing towards.

 A 100 MW isn't the biggest load in the world but on a hot summer day

i'm sure the grid managers notice it, so why not schedule the tunnel to run only from say 11 PM to 7 AM?

 

That's usually the time when the grid has nothing but slack in it, and they are often times

paying big users to take power so as to avoid having to turn down hydro sluices.

 

Yes, it kind of stinks for the techs to work nights, but i believe we call that

Shift differential.

What makes this movie stand out from the typical high school sports story is that the teenagers are undocumented immigrants, and the big game is a NASA-sponsored marine robotics competition. Like many other Hollywood movies, however, Spare Parts only tells part of the story. What the film shows -- and doesn’t show -- raises important issues affecting STEM education in the US.
Instead of sifting through huge amounts of technical data looking for answers to assembly problems, engineers can now benefit from 3M's new initiative -- 3M Assembly Solutions. The company has organized its wealth of adhesive and tape solutions into six typical application areas, making it easier to find the best products to solve their real-world assembly and bonding problems.
Load dump occurs when a discharged battery is disconnected while the alternator is generating current and other loads remain on the alternator circuit. If left alone, the electrical spikes and transients will be transmitted along the power line, leading to malfunctions in individual electronics/sensors or permanent damage to the vehicle’s electronic system. Bottom line: An uncontrolled load dump threatens the overall safety and reliability of the vehicle.
