Researchers combine gecko-inspired adhesives and a custom robotic gripper to create a device for grabbing space debris. They tested their gripper in multiple zero gravity settings, including the International Space Station. Music: "Airglow" by Stellardrone http://bit.ly/2qsm389
Prior to the flyby of Jupiter by Pioneer 10, the CIA and NSA in conjunction with Stanford University were involved in what was called “Remote Viewing.” Remote viewing can be defined in multiple ways. It’s the ability of individuals to describe a remote geographical location up to several hundred thousand kilometers away (sometimes even more) from their physical location.

Lecture 1 of Leonard Susskind's Modern Physics concentrating on General Relativity. Recorded September 22, 2008 at Stanford University. This Stanford Continuing Studies course is the fourth of a six-quarter sequence of classes exploring the essential theoretical foundations of modern physics. The topics covered in this course focus on classical mechanics. Leonard Susskind is the Felix Bloch Professor of Physics at Stanford University.

Stanford scientists have tested a way to measure crop yield from space using satellites that can directly measure plant photosynthesis.
Help us caption and translate this video on Amara.org: http://www.amara.org/en/v/BAtM/ (September 20, 2010) Leonard Susskind gives a lecture on the string theory and particle physics. He is a world renown theoretical physicist and uses graphs to help demonstrate the theories he is presenting. String theory (with its close relative, M-theory) is the basis for the most ambitious theories of the physical world. It has profoundly influenced our understanding of gravity, cosmology, and particle physics. In this course we will develop the basic theoretical and mathematical ideas, including the string-theoretic origin of gravity, the theory of extra dimensions of space, the connection between strings and black holes, the "landscape" of string theory, and the holographic principle.

Two Stanford aerospace majors, Daniel Becerra and Charlie Cox, won a grant to push the limits of amateur high-altitude exploration using a scientific balloon and a custom-designed rocket. The final launch was a success: their rocket launched at 30,000 feet in Kern County, California, and soared to 45,000 feet. All systems checked out perfectly.

Inspired by a whirligig toy, Stanford bioengineers have developed an ultra-low-cost, human-powered blood centrifuge. With rotational speeds of up to 125,000 revolutions per minute, the device separates blood plasma from red cells in 1.5 minutes, no electricity required. A centrifuge is critical for detecting diseases such as malaria, African sleeping sickness, HIV and tuberculosis. This low-cost version will enable precise diagnosis and treatment in the poor, off-the-grid regions where these diseases are most prevalent.

Assistant Professor Chao-Lin Kuo surprises Professor Andrei Linde with evidence that supports cosmic inflation theory. The discovery, made by Kuo and his colleagues at the BICEP2 experiment, represents the first images of gravitational waves, or ripples in space-time. These waves have been described as the "first tremors of the Big Bang." Producer: Bjorn Carey Video: Kurt Hickman For more on the discovery, see: http://news.stanford.edu/news/2014/march/physics-cosmic-inflation-031714.html

The Stanford Space Robotics Facility allows researchers to test innovative guidance and navigation algorithms on a realistic frictionless, underactuated system. The testbed includes a spacecraft equipped with 8 bang-bang blow-down cold gas thrusters and a 7 kg momentum wheel navigating a frictionless 9 x 12 ft air table. Position and attitude are estimated through an Optitrack motion tracking system; on-board processing and communication capabilities are ensured by an off-the-shelf Linux computer. In this video, the SSRF spacecraft navigates to a goal waypoint while avoiding a (stationary) obstacle. Stanford ASL's FMT motion planning algorithm replans the spacecraft's trajectory at 0.5 Hz, while a low-level controller chases the waypoints computed by FMT.
After learning new software and programming languages, Stanford students in the Artificial Intelligence Laboratory have an opportunity to choose a creative task and design a robot to perform the task for demonstration. The tasks call for a wide range of fundamental skills, but generally require the robot to sense where it is in space, detect objects around it, and then autonomously interact with those objects in its environment. Recent projects include pingpong, the Japanese cup-and-ball game, Kendama, and a landing pad that helps a quad-copter touch down safely.

The iconic entrepreneur behind SpaceX, Tesla Motors and Paypal shares his predictions for artificial intelligence, renewable energy and space exploration, in conversation with DFJ General Partner Steve Jurvetson at Stanford on Oct. 7, 2015. University President John Hennessy introduces the future-focused discussion, which follows Musk's journey from his first Internet startup in the mid-nineties to his dream of a Mars colony in the next 20 years.

In this video, the SSRF spacecraft examines and avoids an obstacle set in the middle of its path. The vehicle performs an evasive maneuver, following precomputed waypoints, and controls its attitude so as to survey the obstacle with its front-facing camera. Once the obstacle is cleared, the spac...
