"I just threw the question to [UAH doctoral student, Felix Ewere], and he found the answer for me, which is using this biologically inspired concept," Dr. Gang Wang says. "One day, he just knocked on my door and said, 'Dr. Wang I want to try this one.' " http://on.uah.edu/1CjgCYL
How can a humpback whale and a device that works on the same principle as the clicker that starts your gas grill help an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) fly longer and with more stability? Well, it all starts with biological structures called tubercles that the whale uses for its unique maneuvers in the ocean. Felix Ewere, a doctoral student at The University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH), made a mechanical version of the wavy-looking biological s...

"I'm retiring this April after 23 years with UAH, and I wanted my final project to have a very positive impact," says Ravi Seth, Director of Custodial Services. "I think helping the university reduce waste - and ultimately its environmental footprint - is a worthy cause." http://on.uah.edu/1zEp2E3
UAH has made great strides toward its goal of becoming a more environmentally friendly campus over the last few years, thanks to initiatives both student-led and institutional. And that trend looks set to continue with two new Facilities & Operations' projects intended to reduce the university's carbon footprint.

Dr. Phil Ligrani, Eminent Scholar in Propulsion and Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at UAH, has made groundbreaking contributions in his own field of expertise by building upon the pioneering work of those who came before him. "It always interesting to update or challenge well established ideas, especially in the fluid mechanics and heat transfer fields," he says. http://on.uah.edu/1ElZvTm
It might be surprising to learn that Dr. Phil Ligrani, Eminent Scholar in Propulsion and Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at UAH, is an avid antique collector. His most exciting find to date? An original hand-colored copperplate lithograph of Abraham Ortelius' Maris Pacifici, which he came across while visiting an antique print and map gallery in Houston.

"This development is an excellent follow-on to the original LIS, extending our ability to observe global lightning activity over a longer period of time," says Dr. Hugh Christian, a principal researcher at ESSC and the principal investigator for the ISS LIS instrument. Watch the great video of their experiments! http://on.uah.edu/1998IFb
An expanded view of lightning around the globe is coming closer for scientists at UAH, thanks to a repurposed measuring instrument.

"I just feel very fortunate to have had the privilege of being able to work with such a great group of people on such a wonderful and challenging project," Dr. William J. Emrich says.

Within weeks of creating @uahweather, Clayton faced his first severe weather outbreak as a student. "We got woken up by the tornado sirens at 3 a.m., so I got out of bed and started blazing tweets from the lobby of my residence hall," he says. "We weren't in the path of the storm but people were freaking out." http://on.uah.edu/1z8ck0e
Adam Clayton doesn't have the luxury of sleeping in late. Instead, he rises early each morning to tweet the weather forecast to his hundreds of followers. "You have to make a commitment to be up, especially if there's something big going on," says the Earth system science major at UAH. "I've slept in a couple of times and people have noticed!"

Forney will discuss how 3D printing is able to keep up with the continuous field maintenance and repair of drones and how use of the technology increases innovation, improves communication, reduces development costs, gathers more interest from clients and contractors and personalizes products. http://on.uah.edu/1A9ZYKN
Steven Forney, a research associate at UAH Systems Management and Production (SMAP) Center, will speak March 4 about 3D printing and multi-rotor drone technology at New York's Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) National Technical Institute for the Deaf as part of the Edmund Lyon Memorial Lectureship Series.
