A research experiment by a Mizzou Engineering team in a zero-gravity environment could lead to the development of an efficient method of harvesting water in space. With funding from NASA, the project aims to contribute to future missions to Mars and beyond and for the crew members on the International Space Station (ISS). From William […]
A new tactile map installed near Jesse Hall is the first of its kind for MU. The map, unveiled Dec. 3 to celebrate the International Day of Persons with Disabilities, features hard plastic versions of the buildings on the Northwest quadrant of campus, from McReynolds to Tate Hall. The map was created by MU’s 3D […]
A Mizzou Engineering professor says workshops he has conducted in India have led to a number of collaborative research projects with other scientists. Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Professor Sanjeev Khanna, Director of the Midwest Industrial Assessment Center, recently presented a one-week long national workshop in Allahabad, India on “Materials Behavior and Characterization under Dynamic Loading […]
The Mizzou Alumni Association recently presented Thomas H. Lafferre, BS ME ’56, its 64th Annual Distinguished Service Award.
