Celebrating the Cosmic Web

 

Next Tuesday, August 19 from 3-5 p.m., COSI and OSU's Center for Cosmology and AstroParticle Physics will host scientists talking about the biggest thing in the universe - the cosmic web. Scientists from the US, UK, Netherlands, France, Italy, South Korea, Ecuador, and Argentina will share this big picture view of our universe. Hands-on activities include making "the universe in a coffee cup," creating a cosmic web with origami, and a make-your-own universe with clay.

Quadcopters and Drones

You may have heard some talk recently about quadcopters or drones. From military applications, Amazon package delivery, and even a California based burrito delivery service unmanned aerial vehicles seem to be the emerging technology of the day. With all of these new developments people are right to be excited. Never before in history have we had the opportunity to purchase an aircraft that can be programmed to fly over a range of 1 mile without a pilot on board for less than $300. This fact positions quadcopters and drones to revolutionize transportation, agriculture, media production, military applications, and other industries as innovations are introduced.

Welcome to the neighborhood!

Happy to see our new neighbors, The Columbus Idea Foundry (CIF), getting some national attention. We think the combination of COSI, CIF, and all the other Franklinton innovators are going to make this into the coolest neighborhood in Columbus!
