  • Tongue Control

    This video shows a person using the University of Wisconsin Brain-Computer Interface system with tongue stimulation.

  • Less-Invasive Brain Interfaces

    This movie shows the thin-film micro-ECoG device being pressed down on the surface of water in a petri dish. The ultraflexible nature of the implant means that it cannot exert enough force to break the surface tension of the water. And the properties of polymer used allow it to stick and grab on to the water’s surface. The same thing happens when it is placed on the hydrated surface of the brain, allowing the implant to float with the brain as it moves within the skull without losing contact with the cortical surface.

  • Opening the Space Frontier

    NASA’s Constellation Program plans to build spacecraft and vehicles to return astronauts to the Moon and possibly Mars.

  • The Shuttle Maneuvering in Space

    The Space Shuttle Atlantis conducts a rendezvous pitch maneuver–a backflip to reach the same orbital velocity as another spacecraft–before docking with the International Space Station. Atlantis is traveling at an orbital velocity of 17,500 miles per hour and is rotating three-quarters of a degree per second.
