Dian Fossey (1932-1985) - primatologist and naturalist

For 18 years, Fossey studied, lived among and befriended the gorillas of Rwanda. Fossey made many discoveries about the animals, including understanding their vocalizations, group hierarchies and social relationships, and diet and recycling of nutrition. Her 1983 book, “Gorillas in the Mist,” documented her intense study of the animals and the need to protect them from the constant threat of poachers and neglect.

Pulsed power

The Air Force Research Laboratory's Space Vehicles and Directed Energy Directorates volunteered in assisting with the “Discover STEM” week Feb. 11-15 at the National Museum of Nuclear Science and History in Albuquerque. Presenters talked to students about their careers in science, engineering, technology and mathematics, and what motivated them to become scientists. William White shows students using a handheld coil gun as part of a demonstration of a pulsed power system. Pulsed power systems store energy over a long time, then release that energy over a short time, allowing for a high output power to be generated by a small system. In the case of the handheld coil gun, the energy from eight AA batteries is stored in a capacitor, then released quickly, generating a magnetic field that shoots a metallic ring 30 feet.
