A team of WSU students received an approximately $130,000 grant from NASA for a project to wash lunar dust out of spacesuits.
A WSU research team has created a recyclable carbon-fiber reinforced composite that could eventually replace the non-recyclable version used in everything from modern airplane wings to sporting goods.
A team of WSU students developed a testing robot as part of their senior design project to help match eye‑tracking technology with people in need.
WSU researchers have used the ancient Japanese art of paper folding to possibly solve a key challenge for outer space travel – how to store and move fuel to rocket engines.
Professors Dan “Annie” Du, Kris Kowdley, and Yuehe Lin were named to the annual list that recognizes researchers who have demonstrated significant influence in their fields.
The research could ultimately lead to earlier detection of the neurodegenerative brain disease that affects 5.8 million people in the U.S.
A recent study showed that the slow release of soy-based chemical compounds from a 3D‑printed bone-like scaffold resulted in a reduction in bone cancer cells while building up healthy cells.
The test demonstrated a key technology needed for long endurance, all‑electric flights for medium-sized UAVs. It could also be the first step toward a future of using hydrogen in aviation.
The organ models, developed in part by WSU scientists, could improve surgical outcomes for thousands of patients worldwide.
The spectrometer will enable WSU researchers to perform more accurate measurements of materials found in spent nuclear fuels, nuclear waste forms and fuel materials.
