Alumnus Ernest Sternglass ’44, M.S. ’51, Ph.D. ’53, spearheaded the creation of a highly light-sensitive camera that NASA later adopted for the unmanned Surveyor probes and the subsequent Apollo 11 and 12 lunar missions.
The Cornell-BNL ERL Test accelerator, or CBETA, reached an important milestone June 24: It measured energy recovery for the first time, confirming a theory first proposed more than 50 years ago at Cornell.
A predictive model combining information about plant physiology, real-time soil conditions and weather forecasts can save 40% of the water consumed by traditional irrigation strategies, according to new Cornell research.
Cornell will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing with a panel on exoplanetary discovery, a lecture by author Andrew Chaikin, music by the Aeolus Quartet and a display in Kroch Library.
