Midweek news roundup

By Eileen De Guire / August 22, 2012

Some pretty cool stuff is going on out there… MIT ‘microthrusters’ are the size of a penny, could reposition tiny satellites Bus-sized satellites require massive engines for even the slightest movements, but as far smaller structures become a possibility, a tiny driving mechanism can offer usable thrust. To serve this next-gen tech, MIT saw a…

With quasicrystal discovery, Daniel Shechtman earns Nobel Prize in Chemistry

By / October 5, 2011

Daniel Shechtman’s diffraction pattern was tenfold: turning the picture a tenth of a full circle (36 degrees) results in the same pattern. Credit: Shechtman; Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences. Daniel Shechtman, while working at NIST alongside other luminaries, such as John Cahn, set the physics and materials science world atwitter (even before Twitter!) in 1984…
