“I goed to school, and my friends were not listening.” Layne Hubbard, who earned her doctorate from CU Boulder in 2021, is developing new technology to help young kids take charge of their own stories.
Just after first responders extinguished the flames of the Marshall Fire, a team of engineers from across the country hit the ground in an urgent effort: to collect data on the disaster before it disappears for good.
The American Association for the Advancement of Science, the world’s largest general scientific society, has announced that three CU Boulder researchers will join the ranks of its newest class of fellows.
In December, students and professionals sat in a mission operations center on campus to watch NASA's new Imaging X-Ray Polarimetry Explorer satellite blast off into space. But for the dedicated individuals managing the mission operations, the hard work had just begun.
Survivors of events like the recent Marshall Fire may face what sociologist Lori Peek called "the long tail of disaster-related trauma." She argues these survivors need mental health resources and support from friends and family long after the television cameras are gone.
On April 2020, astronomers observed a gigantic burst of energy and charged particles erupting from the surface of a far away star called EK Draconis. The findings suggest that similar events could, theoretically, occur on our own sun––albeit rarely.
