Adolescent psychological well-being tied to adult risk of cardiovascular disease, study finds

Scientists have known for years that a person’s risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) can be lowered with lifestyle changes such as modifying diet, exercise, alcohol and tobacco use. Now Anand Chockalingam and Sharan Srinivas at the University of Missouri demonstrate in a new study that a long-term association also exists between an adolescent’s psychological well-being and their risk of CVD as an adult.

Mizzou Engineer proposes new guidance law for landing on Mars

Landing a spacecraft on Mars isn’t an easy feat. According to NASA, only about 40 percent of all Mars missions have succeeded, because it requires a vehicle to go from 12,500 miles per hour to zero in a short amount of time while adjusting for heat, pressure and other constraints. Now, a Mizzou Engineer is proposing a new landing strategy that could be more efficient and effective than current methods.
