Cornell researchers have created a soft robot muscle that can regulate its temperature through sweating. This technology will enable untethered, high-powered robots to operate for long periods of time without overheating.
Cornell events this week include a talk with actress Vanessa Bayer; an impeachment law panel discussion; "Some Like It Hot" in a classic American cinema series; and a community concert with the Glee Club and Chorus.
Steven Strogatz, the Jacob Gould Schurman Professor of Applied Mathematics, hosts a new podcast series for Quanta Magazine called “The Joy of x” in which he interviews scientists and mathematicians about their lives and work.
Faculty members Anthony Burrow and Julia Felippe, Ph.D. ’02, have been appointed provost’s fellows for public engagement, to advance Cornell’s public engagement mission and initiatives around community-engaged learning and research.
