Utah State University Research Foundation’s Energy Dynamics Laboratory recently operated the first high-power, high-efficiency wireless power transfer system capable of transferring enough energy to quickly charge an electric vehicle. The lightweight, low-profile system demonstrated 90 percent electrical transfer efficiency of five kilowatts over an air gap of 10 inches. The demonstration at EDL’s North Logan, Utah, facility further validates that electric vehicles can efficiently be charged with wireless technology.

High up in the sky near the poles some 50 miles above the ground, silvery blue clouds sometimes appear, shining brightly in the night. First noticed in 1885, these clouds are known as noctilucent, or "night shining," clouds. Their discovery spawned over a century of research into what conditions causes them to form and vary — questions that still tantalize scientists to this day.

BAE Systems engineers have delivered two production units of the U.S. Navy's primary shipboard intelligence system for U.S. naval forces, designed to provide greater intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance (ISR), and targeting capability compared to legacy systems. This first BAE Systems-built production system of the Distributed Common Ground System-Navy (DCGS-N) is now being installed onboard the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN 69) in Norfolk, Va. The second system is being shipped to the USS George Washington (CVN 73) in Yokosuka, Japan. The BAE Systems-led team also includes General Dynamics, Sun Microsystems, ManTech, Space Dynamics Laboratory, InVisM, Argon ST, and Athena Consulting.

An asteroid recently discovered by NASA's Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE) may be a bit of an oddball. Most near-Earth asteroids -- NEAs for short -- have eccentric, or egg-shaped, orbits that take the asteroids right through the inner solar system. The new object, designated 2010 SO16, is different. Its orbit is almost circular such that it cannot come close to any other planet in the solar system except Earth.
