Drought and population booms have a growing number of communities taking a closer look at building desalination plants, but turning saltwater to freshwater is more expensive than many would like. Many researchers believe the magic bullet that lowers costs will be a high-strength membrane that can withstand the intense water pressure needed to desalinate water. […]
All four of the Clemson nominees for the prestigious Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship for Excellence in Science, Mathematics and Engineering received the award this year.
An astronaut who served on three shuttle missions and later became NASA’s deputy administrator visited Clemson University on Sept. 26 to share his experiences and present a $10,000 scholarship to a physics student. Fred Gregory’s visit to the Edgar Brown University Union was part of a program funded by the Astronaut Scholarship Foundation. John Farmer a […]
Two Clemson University researchers have developed a new technology that could enable gadgets ranging from computers to cell phones to run faster by transmitting information with light instead of electrical current.
An astronaut who served on three shuttle missions and later became NASA’s deputy administrator will be at Clemson University Friday to share his experiences and present a $10,000 scholarship to a physics student.
An international team of scientists led by a Clemson University astrophysicist has discovered new evidence that planets are forming around a star about 335 light years from Earth.
Professor Apparao Rao and his Clemson team are creating safer carbon nanomaterials to boost high-tech industries, help the environment and improve health care.
If you are looking for a classically trained trumpeter on campus, and your search doesn’t begin in an upper-level astrophysics course, you’re going to miss out on John Farmer.
Like many college-bound freshmen, Shannon Stefl started her undergraduate degree a bit unsure about her future. Unlike most first-year students, when she wasn’t satisfied with her curriculum, Shannon made an ambitious change: from French to physics.
While many college football fans are focused on this week’s marquee matchup between the Georgia Bulldogs and the Clemson Tigers, researchers from the two institutions are working together off the playing field to develop low-cost technology that can detect cancer.
As the Clemson administration works on a Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP), part of the reaffirmation of the University’s accreditation by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC), new Faculty Senate President Jeremy King has come up with his own faculty-centered quality enhancement plan.
With a rare "ion beamline," Chad Sosolik will literally make star stuff in his Clemson University lab. Funded by a just-announced $1.6 million National Science Foundation grant, the device will allow scientists to strip atoms of all their electrons, producing highly charged ions that in nature are created only in the bellies of stars.
