This 3D printed ear was developed by researchers at +Princeton University and +Johns Hopkins University. The ear is printed from several #materials ‬: a hydrogel to form an ear-shaped scaffold, cells that will grow to form cartilage, and silver nanoparticles to form an antenna. The research is supported by AFOSR PO: Dr. Hugh DeLong, Natural Materials and Systems #MaterialsScience   #3DPrinting   #BasicResearch
From kidneys to hands, 3D printers are churning out made-to-order bones and rudimentary organs.

+NASA researchers, working with AFRL and +FlexSys, Inc., successfully completed initial flight tests of a new morphing wing technology that has the potential to save fuel, reduce airframe weight and decrease aircraft noise. #Aviation   #Innovation  +NASA Armstrong Flight Research Center  #flexsys
Researchers, working in concert with the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) and FlexSys Inc., of Ann Arbor, Michigan, successfully completed initial flight tests of a new morphing wing technology with the potential to save millions of dollars annually in fuel costs, reduce airframe weight and decrease aircraft noise during takeoffs and landings.

"Smile, and the Universe Smiles With You"

Happy 25th Anniversary to the +Hubble Space Telescope!

In this image, from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, a galaxy cluster appears to smile. The eyes are very bright galaxies, and the smile lines are arcs caused by an effect known as strong gravitational lensing. Learn more at http://1.usa.gov/1QrfgQI +NASA +European Space Agency, ESA

#ThrowbackThursday  | Superconductivity (1951-present)

Superconductivity, or the total lack of DC electrical resistance in certain materials when cooled to a temperature near absolute zero, has been a key field of endeavor for AFOSR research for over fifty years. Read the full story in the AFOSR Monograph: http://bit.ly/1e5WVTr (page 16)

Twenty five years ago today, the +Hubble Space Telescope was launched aboard the Space Shuttle Discovery to usher in a new era of observing the Universe. 

For this special Friday #HubbleHangout , your trusty co-hosts +Tony Darnell, Dr.+Carol Christian and +Scott Lewis will be discussing their favorite images, discoveries and accomplishments that have been made over the past quarter century with our grand telescope. 

Also joining the team is +European Space Agency, ESA's Georgia Bladon who will be presenting the winners of the #OdeToHubble  competition! Many fantastic entries were submitted and you can view the "Shortlist" here: http://www.spacetelescope.org/projects/Hubble25/odetohubble/

We're also looking to hear from you about YOUR favorite memories, images and breakthroughs from Hubble. Please search through our image gallery and News Center, and let us know in comments below or tweet at us with the hashtag #HubbleHangout  

Hubble Gallery: http://hubblesite.org/gallery/
Hubble News Center: http://hubblesite.org/newscenter/

We discover, shape and champion basic science that profoundly impacts the future Air Force.
Introduction
Welcome to the official Google+ page of AFOSR. We discover, shape and champion basic science that profoundly impacts the future Air Force.
 
For sixty years, AFOSR has forged the foundations of science in every mission critical area for today’s Air Force, from integrated circuits, lasers, and stealth to anti-missile defense systems, hypersonics, and space travel. AFOSR personnel do not dream about what is possible—we accomplish what many believe is impossible. We focus on the science of the future today; enabling a future Air Force that will be far more technologically advanced than any peer.
