Lehigh University nuclear fusion plasma control expert pursuing global energy goal

( Lehigh University) Two Department of Energy grants support the work of Eugenio Schuster, an expert in nuclear fusion plasma control and a professor of mechanical engineering and mechanics at Lehigh University. The grants fund experiments Schuster is doing at tokamaks in San Diego, China, and South Korea. Solutions derived from those experiments will be extrapolated to the ITER tokamak being built in France, the first nuclear reactor based on fusion.

Nuclear reactors with a newly proposed barrier could've withstood Chernobyl and Fukushima

( Pensoft Publishers) To regain public confidence in nuclear power -- a sustainable source of renewable energy, as well as bridging the gap between what we know today and what is going on in practice, scientists propose a new safety barrier to be implemented in large reactors around the world. The new barrier, described in the open-access journal Nuclear Energy and Technology, could reduce the probability of core melt to that of a large meteorite hitting the site.

NASA spots first tropical cyclone of Southern Pacific season

( NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) The tropical cyclone season in the Southern Pacific Ocean has kicked off with Tropical Cyclone Rita, and NASA's Aqua satellite passed over the storm and analyzed it in infrared light for temperature data.

FAU receives $1.3 million grant from Florida Division Of Emergency Management

( Florida Atlantic University) The project is funded in part by the federal government through FEMA's Hazard Mitigation Grant Program and in part from the state of Florida. The FDEM Bureau of Mitigation prioritizes flood risk management as an integral part of its mission. The goals of this project are to help communities guide future mitigation projects as well as to assist local communities in moving up in the Community Rating System of the National Flood Insurance Program.

Researchers reach milestone in quantum standardization

( University of Waterloo) Researchers at the University of Waterloo have developed a method that could pave the way to establishing universal standards for measuring the performance of quantum computers.The new method, called cycle benchmarking, allows researchers to assess the potential of scalability and to compare one quantum platform against another.
