(Cornell University) To study conditions in the ionosphere, Cornell University research engineer Steven Powell and others in the College of Engineering have developed the FOTON (Fast Orbital TEC for Orbit and Navigation) GPS receiver. This year, the FOTON hitched a ride aboard the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket to begin a long-term project at the International Space Station.
(Cornell University) Cornell engineers have devised a method for transmitting and receiving radio signals on a single chip, which could ultimately help change the way wireless communication is done.
(Cornell University) As more states consider legalizing recreational marijuana, a range of arguments for and against legalization is swirling around the national conversation. Which of these arguments resonate most strongly with Americans? It's the arguments that support legalization, according to a new study
Gases from erupting volcanoes could make planets beyond the Solar System warmer and hospitable to life, even if the planet is relatively distant from its host star.Ramses Ramirez and Lisa Kaltenegger of Cornell University in Ithaca, New York, used a climate model to study
The troll's post is coming from inside the house. Possibly even your house, in fact. A joint research project out of Stanford and Cornell Universities has determined that internet trolls are not just the rando online harassers thatShow More Summary

(Cornell University) With 7,600 lakes and 70,000 miles of creeks and rivers to monitor, Cornell researchers struggled to stay ahead of round goby and other invasive species--until they tapped into New York's network of teachers looking to bring science alive for their students. Good story for National Invasive Species Awareness Week (Feb. 27 - March 3).
(Cornell University) Only 2 percent of the 78 million tons of manufactured plastics are currently recycled into similar products because polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP), which account for two-thirds of the world's plastics, have different chemical structures and cannot be efficiently repurposed together.
