- NASA's Digital Learning Network
NASA's Digital Learning Network (DLN) is a content provider that works with students all over the United States, including the west coast. The DLN is about connecting with the next generation of Explorers. The DLN assists in the fulfillment of NASA's demanding mission, ''to inspire the next generation of explorers,'' by sharing the knowledge and expertise of NASA scientists, engineers, and researchers with students in today's classrooms. Through the DLN, learners at all levels have the opportunity to interact directly with NASA experts, often from their workplace, to gain a new appreciation for the importance of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics education.The goal of the DLN is to enhance NASA's capability to deliver unique content by linking students and educators with NASA experts. The DLN offers videoconferencing or Webcasting at no charge, providing interactive educational experiences to students and educators from kindergarten to university levels across the Nation and around the world.Two-way audio/video videoconferencing systems that are either H.320 or H.323 standards based are compatible with NASA's DLN. One computer with Internet connectivity and an optional projection device or a computer lab and Internet connectivity are necessary for participation in a Webcast; student interaction is possible via chat forum or e-mail. Additional information is available online at the NASA Digital Learning Network Web page at http://education.nasa.gov/dln/.
The Lifeboat Foundation is a nonprofit, nongovernmental organization, dedicated to providing solutions that will safeguard humanity from the growing threat of terrorism and technological cataclysm. This humanitarian organization is pursuing all possible options, including self-sustaining technologies using AI and nanotechnology, with an emphasis on self-contained space arks.
JPL's Nondesctructive Evaluation and Advanced Actuators (NDEAA) Technologies Lab
The JPL's Nondestructive Evaluation and Advanced Actuators (NDEAA) Technologies lab was established by Dr. Yoseph Bar-Cohen in May 1991. The NDEAA lab is one of the JPL Unique Facilities and it is involved with innovative research and development (R&D) for space applications and technology transfer to other fields. The topics of R&D include novel actuators, transducers, sensors, robotic mechanisms and NDE methods.

Thermal Management Using Nanotechnology
CogniTek has developed technology to reduce the size of heat exchangers up to 93% through the use of nanofluids and nanocomposites. CogniTek is applying this technology into the next generation absorption cooling systems with increased effectiveness and significantly lower size and cost.
Prof. Wenbin Yu
Dr. Wenbin Yu is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering at Utah State University. He received PhD from Georgia Institute of Technology in 2002. He has extensive expertise in solid mechanics and has made significant contribution in modeling of composite/smart structures and materials. He has authored 15 archive journal arti-cles and many other professional publications. Dr. Yu has written two finite element analysis programs, VABS (Variational Asymptotic Beam Sectional analysis) and VAPAS (Variational Asymptotic Plate and Shell analysis), which are being used around the world by many users from academia, industry, and government laboratories including Army Vehicle Technology Director-ate, Bell Helicopter Textron, Inc., Boeing Helicopter Corporation, NASA Ames Research Cen-ter, NASA Langley Research Center, Naval Surface Warfare Center, and Kaman Aerospace. Dr. Yu was a post doctoral fellow at Georgia Tech Aerospace System Design Laboratory where he has obtained extensive training in advanced design methodologies such as Design of Experi-ments, Response Surface Method, and Monte Carlo Simulation which are necessary to develop Strategic Experimentation Framework proposed in this project. He was a key team member for the project “Stochastic Life Assessment of Hot Gas Path Components”, sponsored by General Electric Power Systems. Dr. Yu is a member of ASME, AIAA, AHS, AAM, and AIAA Struc-tures Technical Committee. He won the Georgia Tech Luther S. Long III Memorial Award in Engineering Mechanics, and Sigma Xi Outstanding Doctoral Dissertation Award. Please refer to his website for details.
