Texas A&M Chemistry Road Show Rolls On With Van From Dow Chemical
One of Texas A&M University's most popular educational outreach programs, the Chemistry Road Show, continues to deliver scientific inspiration to audiences throughout Texas in style, thanks to the gift of a new van from The Dow Chemical Company. Each year the program helps introduce thousands to the wonders of chemistry, physics and general science through high-energy presentations at K-12 public schools, libraries and related educational events across the Lone Star State. With the help of excit

Slingshot to the Outer Planets
Students are introduced to the engineering challenges involved with interplanetary space travel. In particular, they learn about the gravity assist or "slingshot" maneuver often used by engineers to send spacecraft to the outer planets. Using magnets and ball bearings to simulate a planetary flyby, students investigate what factors influence the deflection angle of a gravity assist maneuver.

Motor Exam: Normal Exam: Upper Extremities - Stretch or Deep Tendon Reflexes
A brisk tap to the muscle tendon using a reflex hammer produces a stretch to the muscle that results in a reflex contraction of the muscle. The muscles tested, segmental level, and grading of DTR's is listed below. Levels for DTR's: Biceps – C5-6 Brachioradialis – C5-6 Triceps – C7 Finger Flexors – C8 Grading DTR's: 0 – Absent 1 – Decreased but present 2 – Normal 3 – Brisk and excessive 4 – With clonus The first principle of neurologic diagnosis is regional or anatomical locali

Modeled Arctic Sea Ice Thickness from 1940 through 2060: View #1
Part of the ongoing research into polar ice trends encompasses evaluation from sophisticated computer models. At the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory at Princeton University, run by NASAs sibling agency, NOAA, researchers modeled a 5,000 year period to see how polar ice might behave over time depending on several different variables. This visualization shows a 120-year slice of that complete model, essentially offering a research window on to experimental processes that require longer time
