Astronaut Scott Kelly is no stranger to stardom, having rocketed to fame as the first American to spend a year in space. In fact, by the time he returns to Earth in March, he will have spent more than 500 days total in orbit, a record for any American and trailing only a small number
Smithsonian, the official magazine of the Smithsonian Institution, recently had a prominent spot for UT’s SynDaver “Mabeline” in its story on the rising use of artificial cadavers at medical schools. Unlike most places, Mabeline—so named because of her housing in the Department of Mechanical, Aerospace and Biomedical Engineering, or MABE—is used in engineering classes.
UT aerospace engineering senior Michael Holloway has been named a Tau Beta Pi laureate for 2015, one of just five students so honored across the United States this year.
The College of Engineering has become the first in the world to use a synthetic cadaver created by SynDaver Labs. The SynDaver Synthetic Human was originally designed as a surgical simulator and has become the most elaborate and sophisticated full-body synthetic cadaver on the market, finding a quick role in medical schools.
UT mechanical engineering student Nathan Powell is just one of twelve engineering students nationwide competing to be an intern on a Formula One race team.
