Harnessing the Biosphere: Natural Products and Biotechnology. TJ3Sat - A CubeSat Experimental Satellite built by TJHSST students. TJ3Sat is a joint project between the Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology and industry partners to design and build a CubeSat to increase interest in aerospace technology, as part of NASA's Educational Launch of NanoSatellites (ELaNa) program.

TJ3Sat - A CubeSat Experimental Satellite built by TJHSST students

TJ3Sat's primary mission is to provide educational resources to other K-12 education institutions to foster interest in aerospace through the successful design and flight of a CubeSat. Our mission will be successful if it provides resources to other high schools so that they may also attempt to design and construct satellites, building upon what we have learned.

Health Impact Assessment of Shale Gas Extraction: Workshop Summary. Natural gas extraction from shale formations, which includes hydraulic fracturing, is increasingly in the news as the use of extraction technologies has expanded, rural communities have been transformed seemingly overnight, public awareness has increased, and regulations have been developed.

Health Impact Assessment of Shale Gas Extraction: Workshop Summary

The governmental public health system, which retains primary responsibility for health, was not an early participant in discussions about shale gas extraction; thus public health is lacking critical information about environmental health impacts of these technologies and is limited in its ability to address concerns raised by regulators at the federal and state levels, communities, and workers employed in the shale gas extraction industry. The world's most viewed site on global warming and climate change.

Bosch, T.R. Microbial Powerhouses Produce Valuable Compounds. When Michigan State University artist Adam Brown learned of a type of bacteria, Cupriavidus metallidurans, that can extract pure gold from the toxic solution gold chloride (a totally artificial salt), he hurried to an expert colleague, microbiologist Kazem Kashefi, with a question: “Is it possible to make enough gold to put in the palm of my hand?”

Microbial Powerhouses Produce Valuable Compounds

Brown merely wanted to satisfy his intellectual and artistic curiosity, inspired by the gold-tinted roots of alchemy, the precursor of modern chemistry. Soon thereafter, Kashefi and Brown set to work designing a half-experiment, half-art-exhibit that exposes C. metallidurans to gold chloride in a hydrogen-gas-rich atmosphere that serves as a source of food.
