Imagine you're on your way to Mars and a crucial tool floats away to outer space during a spacewalk. Not to worry, you'll simply re-enter your spacecraft and use microorganisms to convert your urine and exhaled carbon dioxide into chemicals to make a new one. That's one of the ultimate goals of scientists who are developing ways to make long space trips feasible.
Fifty-thousand people on the Clemson University campus craned their necks skyward at 2:37 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 21, 2017, to gaze at a natural phenomenon that hasn’t happened in the United States for 100 years: a coast-to-coast total solar eclipse.
Walk through one of the doors embedded in the three-story wall of windows at the front of the building’s sleek white exterior, and you’ll find a Starbucks, a geospatial technology lab, and a digital studio sponsored by Adobe. Open work spaces all around you buzz with researchers collaborating on high-definition displays, computer monitors, and laptops. It might sound like a high-tech incubator in Silicon Valley, but it’s Clemson University’s main library - which had more than 1.4 million visitors in 2016 - as it joins others across the country in adapting to the digital age.
With patches of exposed skin, large lesions across her face and dull, expressionless eyes, you might think Lorelei, a Shetland sheepdog, has been abused.
