Project HOPE

A young team of engineers had one year and a lot to learn before getting their rocket off the ground. Project Hands-On Learning Experience (HOPE) offered a team of young engineers the opportunity to design, develop, build and launch a suborbital flight project within one year. The first team selected for Project HOPE was the Terrain-Relative Navigation and Employee Development (TRaiNED) project from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL). Its mission built upon a 2006 initial development test conducted on a sounding rocket flight. The previous flight had collected analog ground imagery during the descent portion of the rocket’s trajectory and inertial measurement unit (IMU) and GPS data from launch to landing in order to further develop terrain-relative navigation computer algorithms. The TRaiNED project expanded on the initial mission to include exo-atmospheric imagery in addition to descent imagery. TRaiNED was part of JPL's Phaeton Early Career Hire Development Program. The concept for HOPE originated with a request in 2006 by then-NASA Chief Engineer Chris Scolese to find creative ways of giving young NASA employees the skills needed to lead future projects and programs. The result was a collaboration between the Academy of Program/Project & Engineering Leadership and the Science Mission Directorate to stand up a yearlong training program for young engineers.

Authors and Poets

For 50 years, the Academy of Achievement has invited the world's pre-eminent authors to address its annual Summit. Novelists and playwrights, journalists and historians, critics and humorists, poets and songwriters, essayists and philosophers, all have shared their wisdom with the Academy's honorees and student delegates. Now you can see and hear these presentations, recorded live at the International Achievement Summit. In poetry and prose, these men and women explore the world of nature and the drama of the human condition. Some are creators of fantasy, others are chroniclers of fact; some evoke the nuances of personal experience, others explain the mysteries of the cosmos. Hear their personal accounts of the passions that first inspired them, and the dedication that sustained them as they patiently mastered their art.

Environment: Lake Baikal - for iPod/iPhone

Should natural resources be exploited to support economic development? In Siberia, Lake Baikal is the deepest lake in the world and contains one fifth of the world’s freshwater. It has developed over 25 million years to be a truly unique eco-system - yet this lake is now an environment at serious risk. This album focuses on the growing environmental threats to the region, which was named a World Heritage Site in 1996. Industry and new businesses flocked to the once-isolated region, inducing massive economic growth, but at what cost to the natural habitat? On top of this threat, the invasion of alien species and rising water temperatures due to global warming throw up questions, conflicts and challenges about sustainable development and how we are to manage the consequences of our actions responsibly. This material forms part of the course U216 Environment.

Entering the Ecological Age: Resource Efficient Cities - video

In the last 18 months Peter Head has visited 23 countries discussing a transition from the industrial model of city development to an ecological one based on efficient use of renewable resources, including energy. He will present both retrofit and new development scenarios which are emerging, and his analysis, based on evidence of real examples of best practice, makes an economic case for rethinking forms of cities to enable human development to flourish. Peter Head is a Senior Director at Arup, one of the world's most successful engineering and planning consultancy companies, with over 10,000 staff in 37 countries. Peter is a civil and structural engineer who has become a recognized world leader in major bridges (he received an OBE for successfully delivering the Second Severn Crossing as Government Agent), advanced composite technology and now in sustainable development in cities. He has won many awards for his work including the Award of Merit of IABSE, the Royal Academy of Engineering’s Silver Medal and the Prince Philip Award for Polymers in the Service of Mankind. He was appointed in 2002 by the Mayor of London as an independent Commissioner on the London Sustainable Development Commission and leads the planning and development sub-group of the Commission. He joined Arup in 2004 to create the Planning and Integrated Urbanism team, which he directs from London. This lecture is a summary of the prestigious Brunel lecture for the UK Institution of Civil Engineers.

IOCCG Summer Lecture Series 2012

The International Ocean Colour Coordinating Group (IOCCG) organized the first IOCCG Summer Lecture Series dedicated to high level training in the fundamentals of ocean optics, bio‐optics and ocean colour remote sensing. This was a 2‐week intensive course that took place from July 2nd – 14th at the Laboratoire d'Océanographie de Villefranche (LOV), Villefranche‐sur‐mer, France. A total of 13 renowned lecturers were invited to teach at the course and 17 students from 13 different countries took part in the course (see Appendix 1 ‐ List of Training Course Participants). More than 100 students had applied to participate in the course and the 17 remaining applicants were primarily chosen with respect to their motivation and on the basis of their academic background. The majority of them were PhD students and post‐Docs, and some were starting their careers as young researchers. The participants came from a broad range of backgrounds, but all were familiar with at least some domains of ocean colour science and had a solid understanding of ocean colour remote sensing.
