FAA opens more airspace in North Dakota for UAS research
The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration on Wednesday authorized unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) to fly in a wide area of North Dakota, a development intended to give industry greater access to research opportunities.
Starting Tuesday, the coastal crowd will get another opportunity to laugh at the zany practices of those living in the frozen reaches of the Great Plains. The new television series “Fargo,” based on the 1996 Coen brothers movie, will no doubt be filled with fearsome violence mixed with the proper amount of Scandinavian reserve and wry humor — the very formula that made the original such as hit.

Multiple entities within NSF invite proposals for the Cultivating Cultures for Ethical STEM Research Program (CCE STEM) funds research projects that identify factors that are efficacious in the formation of ethical STEM researchers in all the fields of science and engineering. CCE STEM research projects will use basic research to produce knowledge about what constitutes responsible or irresponsible, just or unjust scientific practices and sociotechnical systems, and how to best instill students with this knowledge.
