Another undergraduate student project from Utah State University is on its way to space.
Students and faculty from Utah State University’s Advancing Sustainability through Powered Infrastructure for Roadway Electrification (ASPIRE) program demonstrated ground-breaking work for Utah Gov. Spencer Cox at the Electric Vehicle and Roadway Research Facility and Test Track in Logan on Wednesday. ASPIRE Program Director Regan Zane hosted the governor and several of his cabinet members during their visit to the facility. The group learned how ASPIRE develops solutions for the widespread electrification of all vehicles. A combination of these technological advances is being deployed and evaluated as part of a pilot project with the Utah Inland Port Authority being developed in Salt Lake County. These technologies will help reduce emissions and the negative effects of air pollution on the surrounding communities. Use of these technologies in projects like the Inland Port is receiving bipartisan support in Utah because of the potential for balancing the health of the state’s residents while also stimulating economic growth. @aspireerc @govcox @usuaggielife #Utah #ElectricVehicles #InlandPort
Another undergraduate student project from Utah State University is on its way to space. This week, after more than eight years of work, members of the Utah State University Get Away Special team are delivering their recently completed CubeSat satellite to Houston, Texas. The project is part of NASA’s CubeSat Launch Initiative. Although the Get Away Special team is part of the physics department at Utah State, the team is made of students from a variety of academic backgrounds, including engineering. Here are some pictures of a few of the engineering students on the team demonstrating their project for College of Engineering faculty members. @usuaggielife @nasa @usu_physics #CubeSat #NASA #space
Researchers from Utah State University’s Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering are advancing the future of nuclear power. This summer, two researchers each received an $800,000 grant from the Department of Energy’s Nuclear Energy University Program. Congratulations to Nadia Kouraytem and Hailei Wang.
