Purdue University develops Natty DRED

Purdue University researchers have developed a method to sort and isolate chemical compounds as they are made. The new technique combines imaging technology and combinatorial chemistry and is said to be four to twelve times faster than current methods. The process also promises to simplify and speed up the drug discovery process. The new method […]

Purdue to build $41m hypersonic research facility

Purdue University is set to construct facilities that will help engineers to conduct advanced hypersonic research. The planned $41m Hypersonic Applied Research Facility (HARF) will house two wind tunnels, including the only Mach 8 quiet wind tunnel in the world as well as a hypersonic pulse (HYPULSE) shock tunnel. According to Purdue, the tunnels recreate […]

Purdue researcher develops “drag sail” to bring satellites back to Earth on completing their mission

Adapted from orbit-boosting technology, the sail will interact with the atmosphere to de-orbit satellites, reducing risk to other space hardware and astronauts The problem of “space junk” – satellites that have reached the end of their lives, discarded rocket stagings and fairings, space rocks trapped in orbit and items that have simply fallen off spacecraft […]

Purdue solar-powered car wins award

A team of Purdue University students has won first place in the solar-power category of the Shell Eco-marathon Americas, an international contest for college and high-school students to design and build the most fuel-efficient vehicles. The Purdue Solar Racing team’s car, called Pulsar, took home the ‘People’s Choice Award’ and won the solar-power category. The […]
