Space Research

  • The Floating Potential Measurement Unit, designed and built by Utah State's Space Dynamics Laboratory, will gauge electrical charges that build up on the outside of the orbiting station. It will also measure the space environment to help scientists better understand how the charges accumulate. The Utah State University-built instrument is going to be installed on the outside of the International Space Station.[1]
  • The Geosynchronous Imaging Fourier Transform Spectrometer (GIFTS) program is part of NASA's New Millennium Program, which has its roots in only 6 six universities, one of the first being Utah State University. GIFTS is the first step toward incorporating technological breakthroughs into the next generation of operational weather observing systems. GIFTS will include advanced technologies in imaging spectrometry, active cooling, fast data processing, pointing and control, radiation protection, and lightweight materials. Testing and validation of the technological breakthroughs need to be conducted in space. The space demonstration will use GIFTS' new techniques to gather water vapor, temperature, and cloud data. At the same time, measurements will be taken on the ground and from aircraft (for comparison) to confirm the accuracy of GIFTS measurements. [2]

Science Breakthroughs

  • In 2005, a Utah State University researcher discovered inorganic aromaticity, a property in chemistry that was initially thought to occur only in organic material. Researcher Alexander Boldyrev, along with his colleague Lai-Sheng Wang, a professor at Washington State University and a researcher at the Pacific Northwest Lab, made a breakthrough by discovering aromaticity in inorganic material such as metals. Today, Boldyrev and Wang have made another breakthrough and discovered antiaromaticity, a property that makes materials weak. The study, "All-Metal Antiaromatic Molecule," is featured in the April 24 issue of "Science" magazine. Boldyrev's new findings dealing with antiaromaticity will help chemists understand why certain materials are weaker than others and why they are very reactive to foreign substances. The research gives Boldyrev, an associate professor in the chemistry and biochemistry department, a conceptual breakthrough in understanding chemical bonding in metal clusters. [4]
  • Dr. Robert Gillies, faculty member in the aquatic, watershed and earth resources department, and his co-author Nathaniel A. Brunsell are second-place recipients of the 2003 Leica Geosystems Award for Best Scientific Paper in Remote Sensing. Their paper is titled "Incorporating Surface Emissivity into a Thermal Atmospheric Correction." (Published in PE&RS; 68-12 pp.1263-1269)
  • A team of Utah State University researchers and University of Idaho researchers have been the first in the world to successfully clone an equine. The baby mule, Idaho Gem, was born May 4, 2003. It is the first clone of a hybrid animal. A mule results from a cross between a female horse, a mare, and a male donkey, a jack. As hybrids, mules are sterile, except in extremely rare cases. As scientifically and commercially significant as their accomplishment is for the horse industry, the project provides a new animal model, the horse, to advance understanding of human cancer. Woods believes the breakthrough understanding of cellular biology necessary for horse cloning to proceed may offer new insights into cancer development in humans. [5]
  • Research is being done at Utah State University that shows that plants may be performing computations in unison to solve problems with the plant. If successful, this will be the first research done that shows the reality of natural computation in living systems. The biological data collected is being translated to make a mathematical model to mimic the patterns and behavior of the patches on the leaf created by the opening and closing of the stomata. The research could have an impact not just on plants, but in the study of many other biological systems as well. Emergent computation, which is what the plant does when the stomata communicate with each other could be a new way in biology for studying how cells interact with one another in the absence of a neural network.
  • Utah State University professor of chemistry and biochemistry Lance Seefeldt is currently conducting research on algae and plans to produce an algae-biodiesel that is cost-competitive by 2009. Algae, plainly referred to as pond scum, can produce up to 10,000 gallons of oil per acre and can be grown virtually anywhere. Seefeldt, along with several fellow USU professors, formed the Biofuels Program to develop new and emerging technologies that will produce methane, biodiesel, hydrogen and alcohols from renewable, carbon-dioxide-neutral energy sources, such as consumer and agricultural waste and sunlight. [6]
  • Along with Stanford University, Unidad de Suelos y Riegos, and Northwest Watershed Research Center USDA-ARS, Utah State University is studying the application of electromagnetic induction sensors for mapping the subsurface in small watersheds. The development of an integrated approach to characterizing small watersheds is crucial to understanding the complex links and feedback mechanisms within them. High spatial resolution soil texture data is well correlated to soil hydraulic properties. We present preliminary work using electromagnetic induction (EMI) to map subsurface properties in small watersheds. In this work we used both the Geonics EM-38 and the Dualem EMI sensors which were integrated with a GPS receiver and handheld computer to obtain geo-referenced bulk electrical conductivity (ECa) measurements. In the vertical orientation the sensors respond to the ECa of the top meter of soil. The ECa depends on the solution EC, soil water content, clay / rock content and soil depth. Data obtained from EMI in the form of ECa maps, can provide supplementary information for assessing flow pathways and locating monitoring instrumentation without soil-specific calibration. With ECa calibration, soil texture maps can be generated. This work may be more suited to semi-arid climates where seasonal wet and dry periods can be exploited in data analysis. Current work is looking at methods of developing the best survey and calibration methodology to interpret the measured ECa response for hydrological application. [7]

NASA's Great Moonbuggy Race

Utah State University captured victory in the college division of NASA's 12th annual "Great Moonbuggy Race". They created a moonbuggy with a super-light weight aluminum design which granted them victory in only the second year of being in the competition. Utah State topped 28 other college and university teams from 14 states, Germany and Puerto Rico with a winning time of 3 minutes and 59 seconds. Vehicles powered by two-team members -- one male and one female -- raced one at a time over a half-mile obstacle course of simulated moonscape terrain at Huntsville's U.S. Space & Rocket Center. In addition to the first place honor, the Utah State team earned a cash award and a trophy-replica of the original lunar roving vehicle.[8]


Atmospheric LIDAR Observatory

On clear nights one could see a mysterious green beam of light shooting from the Utah State University campus in Logan. The beam is called LIDAR, which stands for "LIght Detection and Ranging". It is like radar except it uses light and it comes from Utah State's own Atmospheric LIDAR Observatory. The observatory, part of the Center for Atmospheric and Space Sciences, is in Utah State's Science and Engineering Research building. The LIDAR is also supported by the National Science Foundation. The LIDAR is used in Utah State's study and categorization of atmospheric dynamics. In order to get better data, the observatory is building a bigger telescope. The new lab will be on the third floor of the SER building. When the new system is finished, lenses will be used to send the green beam in other directions besides straight up. The new LIDAR system will be able to measure wind and temperature in the mesosphere. A FASOR used at the Starfire Optical Range for LIDAR and laser guide star experiments is tuned to the sodium D2a line and used to excite sodium atoms in the upper atmosphere. ...


GEGA Program

GEGA stands for the (ab initio) Gradient Embedded Genetic Algorithm, a program for finding the global minima of clusters. The Author is Anastassia Alexandrova (later moved to Yale University). GEGA employs geometry-cuts for the Genetic Algorithm procedure, ab initio level of computation for geometry optimization and vibrational frequency analysis (GEGA works with local minima only), and a specific mutational procedure based on the so called "kick technique". There are very few or no other articles that link to this one. ... Yale redirects here. ...


Environmentalism at Utah State

As a major university in the American West, Utah State University students and faculty are concerned with the environment both locally and globally. In reaction to massive oil spills by Exxon Valdez in particular, and the EPA's creation of the Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasure plan (SPCC), USU has created an SPCC with a detailed map of locations, oil types, quantities and containment specifications. They have mapped all possible outfalls from oil storage locations that may impact the waters of the United States. They have developed a plan that utilized engineering controls and emergency spill response to stop all unplanned releases. This article is about the tank vessel Exxon Valdez. ...


Among other things, Utah State University's Environmental Health & Safety Resource Center provides training or resources in dealing with biotoxins such as Anthrax, extensive battery recycling, hazardous waste, mercury thermometer replacement, Indoor Air Quality (IAQ), and much more pertaining to radiation, waste, chemicals, biological, and maintenance. [9]


Humanitarian Efforts in Africa

The Pastoral Risk Management Project (PARIMA), led by Utah State University and federally funded since 1997, is a consortium of university collaborators from the United States and Kenya, as well as an extensive network of partnerships with East African public and private entities. Coordinated by Layne Coppock, principal investigator and associate professor in the College of Natural Resources’ Department of Environment and Society, the team’s major focus is helping southern Ethiopia’s poor rural households, most of which depend on herding for sustenance, diversify their livelihoods. In addition, the project seeks to bolster residents’ economic security by linking them with livestock export markets.


PARIMA has developed a successful model to facilitate collective action by 60 women’s groups, which now boast more than 2,000 members in southern Ethiopia. The groups provide peer mentoring, instruction and support in helping members develop income-generating ventures to supplement their families’ traditional earning sources. Through the PARIMA groups, women are pooling resources and learning how to set up their own viable cottage businesses. Women participating in the groups have saved significant amounts of money, greatly improved how their households are run, are sending their sons and daughters to school and are creatively engaged in the marketplace.[10]


PARIMA was recently honored by the Oromia State Government, Ethiopia’s largest regional state, for “providing outstanding service to pastoral people.


Humanitarian Efforts in Thailand

Utah State University has also made a powerful alliance with Thailand. Utah State University led the way for reform in the area with consultants led by engineering dean Bruce Bishop and sociologist Yun Kim, whose five-year, $10-million contract was funded in part by a low-interest loan from the Asian Development Bank. Utah State University was seen as a natural choice in part of its historic land-grant mission, but also because of its international stature dating to the early 1950s when the Marshall Plan for war-shocked Europe extended the technological expertise of Utah State University and four other American universities to Latin America and the Middle East. USU's practical experience at home and abroad bolstered the courage of the government agency held accountable, the Department of Skill Development (DSD) in Thailand's Ministry of Labor. Its marching orders were to modernize the country's vocational training and triple the number of students served by the department's regional institutes and provincial centers. Two groups were targeted: minimum wage earners whose opportunities for advancement are limited by their lack of technical training, and disadvantaged rural people such as farmers, women and uneducated youth. The Asian Development Bank (ADB) is a regional development bank established in 1966 to promote economic and social development in Asian and Pacific countries through loans and technical assistance. ...


Before tackling these ambitious goals, however, DSD instructors and career counselors had to have their skills updated and their equipment replaced, by no means an inexpensive proposition. Like other countries lining up for the just desserts of the global economy, Thailand didn't have enough resources for the kind of public support system Americans take for granted. The DSD wants to change that. The knowledge of instructors is frozen in the time of their on-the-job training with former employers, and their sincerity cannot compensate for the lack of formal teacher training that Utah State University's College of Education and its peers have provided this country for decades. And equipment for demonstrating the latest welding and auto repair techniques has outlived the availability of replacement parts. [11]

Prior to 2006, all of these invitations were a result of winning the Big West Conference tournament. In 2006, the Aggies received an at-large bid to the tournament, after finishing second place in their first season in the Western Athletic Conference and losing in overtime of the WAC tournament championship game to Nevada-Reno. Despite a stellar season in 2003–2004 and a national top-25 ranking toward the end of the season, the Aggies did not receive an at-large tournament bid after being upset in the conference tournament.
