For years, many scientists didn't think that CubeSats, or unusually small spacecraft, could take on serious science questions. Now, for the first time, a NASA-funded CubeSat mission will explore planets orbiting far-away stars.
When you shrink down to very small scales, heat doesn't always behave the way you think it should. New findings from the nano realm could help researchers gain a better handle on the flow of heat in electronic devices.
“What slashers do is they carve into the world and balance the scales of justice," says horror writer and CU Boulder Professor Stephen Graham Jones. His newest book, "My Heart is a Chainsaw," is in bookstores now.
