One more giant leap
“We’re very excited about this collaborative project between the College of Engineering & Mines and the John D. Odegard School of Aerospace Sciences,” said Brian Tande, dean of the College of Engineering and Mines. “This project will build upon a long history of space-related research at UND and further grow our capabilities to develop new technologies for space applications. It will also capitalize on the generous investment the North Dakota Legislature has recently provided for space research at UND and will certainly lead to even more opportunities.”

UND geologist unearths world’s oldest ice
And you thought the crusty ice in your freezer was old. A UND geologist has ice in his freezer that’s potentially up to 5 million years old — which likely makes it some of the oldest ice ever discovered on the planet. Jaakko Putkonen, associate professor of geology at UND’s Harold Hamm School of Geology & Geological Engineering, doesn’t actually store that ancient ice in his home freezer. Rather, it’s safe and sound in a commercial freezer at the Energy & Environmental Research Center on the east side of campus. It comes out only occasionally if he needs to thaw out a chunk to get at the sand and dirt particles inside, in which case, he temporarily stores it in a small, office freezer.
Plenty of phish in the sea
Once upon a time, automotive security involved locking the door and taking the keys. But these days, there’s a reason why that statement sounds like the first line of a fairy tale.
