Researchers will focus on three specific themes: the properties and structure of nanoscale radioactive materials; the thermochemistry, or heat energy, associated with these materials; and how nanoscale nuclear materials react in various chemical environments.
The recent simulation, called the Real Time (RT) Super Lab, aims to boost future electric grid stability. If electricity can be moved across the globe rather than within only isolated networks, the researchers hope that the work will someday lead to savings on infrastructure and energy use.
The additional service, announced Thursday afternoon by Alaska Air, is scheduled to begin in early January to coincide with the beginning of spring semester and will resume again on select days in March to help accommodate spring break travel.

The program seeks unique, high-risk, paradigm-shifting projects to benefit humanity in two specific areas: medical research, and science and engineering.
The absence of lunar glare will boost the brightness of this year’s mid-November display, said astronomer Michael Allen of Washington State University’s department of physics and astronomy.
Four finalists for the position of dean of the College of Agricultural, Human, and Natural Resource Sciences have been identified and will visit Washington State University during the weeks of Nov. 27 and Dec. 4.

Parts of the building filled with smoke, triggering a mid-morning fire alarm and building evacuation but authorities said no flames were discovered.
As winter arrives, the Facilities Operations Grounds Department is preparing it snow removal plans and priorities and wants to hear from people who have specific snow-removal needs because of disabilities.
Getting ready for school on a snowy day can be quite a challenge for young children. In addition to eating breakfast, getting dressed and packing up workbooks, they have to remember extra things like boots, gloves, a hat, and a coat. Undergraduate researcher Jenna (Eva) Caneva helped turn this real-life scenario into a simple cognition exercise to test the ability of 6-to-10-year-olds to follow instructions.
Currently, there is no teaching endorsement program for computer science at any of Washington’s universities, which advocates say makes program development in the subject increasingly important in today’s advancing technological society.
The fair for the Pullman campus is taking place 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m on November 8 in the CUB Junior Ballroom. To find the schedule of other fairs occurring around the state, visit the HCA webpage.
