"A study published in the Harvard Business Review found that women who have a strong circle of friends are more likely to get executive positions with higher pay. "Women who were in the top quartile of centrality and had a female-dominated inner circle of 1-3 women landed leadership positions that were 2.5 times higher in authority and pay than those of their female peers lacking this combination," Brian Uzzi writes in the Harvard Business Review."

This Saturday (November 2), a payload full of new science tech is headed to the International Space Station. One item is a plastic recycler to be used with the zero-gravity 3D printed on board. This is your   #STEMnewsTues   .⁣ ⁣ Northrop Grumman's robotic Cygnus cargo spacecraft will carry the machine from the California-based company Made In Space (  @madeinspaceinc  ). The recycler will process waste plastic into feedstock for Made In Space's Additive Manufacturing Facility (AMF), the 3D printer that first launched to the ISS in 2014.⁣ ⁣ "The Recycler will complete the plastic sustainability life cycle on orbit by providing astronauts the ability to convert plastic packaging and trash as well as objects previously fabricated by the 3D printer into feedstock to be reused by the printer," Made In Space representatives wrote, adding, “The invention will improve the autonomy and sustainability of long-duration space missions, while also helping to reduce the cost and weight of payloads carried from Earth”.⁣ ⁣ This recycling 3D printer is just one of Made In Space’s creations advancing science and manufacturing. They have also manufactured the valuable optical fiber ZBLAN aboard the ISS using a microwave-size machine. This fiber is superior to traditional optic fiber and is difficult to make in Earth. NASA also recently awarded the company $73.7 million to launch Archinaut, a spacecraft with robotic arms and a 3D printer that can repair existing satellites and build structures in orbit. The Archinaut One mission could lift off as early as 2022!⁣ ⁣ This weekend’s launch will include other projects, including:⁣ • a zero-g oven that will investigate how heat transfer and baking work in microgravity 🥧 ⁣ •and a prototype vest designed to help shield astronauts from space radiation. 👚⁣ ⁣ Talk to your students about the exciting things going on in space! Ask them to brainstorm:⁣ 🔹what other innovations that might be helpful in space (like the recycling 3D printer)?⁣ 🔹 what challenges must be overcome to use an oven in space? Design one! ⁣ 🔹what is difficult to do on Earth that may be easier to accomplish in space?⁣

Top 10 Cities for Diversity in STEM!   @Smartasset   . . "Jobs in STEM fields are among the fastest-growing and highest-paying jobs in America. But there remains tremendous inequality in STEM field along racial and gender lines, which can affect where potential employees can choose to relocate. Some cities are doing better than others when it comes to diversifying their STEM workers." . . .   #STEM    #STEMeducation    #diversity    #science    #STEMfacts    #funfacts    #STEMnews    #STEMjobs

Drug Might Help Slow the Spread of Prostate Cancer. • A drug used to treat other types of cancers, Olaparib, has gone through an experiment using 400 men with advance stages of prostate cancer, as well as a mutation in the gene that repairs cellular damage. In men without gene mutations associated with cancer growth, 22% of test subjects showed little to no signs of cancerous growth or spread. 28% of men with the genetic mutation showed little to no signs of growth or spread. Further trials and clinical studies will have to take place to know the worth of the drug in fighting cancer, but this is certainly a promising development. • Photo curtesy of Getty Images • If you find health related content interesting, please follow me for more!! • Like, Comment and Share to help me grow! •   #space     #science     #tech     #stem     #stemnews     #technology     #sciencenews     #technews     #engineering     #engineeringnews     #math     #news     #nasa     #technologynews     #artemismission     #moon     #mars     #usa     #health     #medical     #medicine     #healthcare     #cancer     #cancerresearch

NASA captures new images of our second interstellar “guest.” • NASA, over the weekend, has used the Hubble space telescope to capture, what are widely considered the best ever photos, from an object not originating in our solar system. The comet 2I/Borisov is relatively unknown, and scientific research is on going into what exactly the shape, size and make-up of the comet is. The comet will pass relatively close to the sun, and should experience a lot of cosmic activity around December 7th this year. • Photos curtesy of: NASA • If you find space related content interesting, please follow me for more!! • Like, Comment and Share to help me grow! •   #space     #science     #tech     #stem     #stemnews     #technology     #sciencenews     #technews     #engineering     #engineeringnews     #math     #news     #nasa     #technologynews     #artemismission     #moon     #mars     #usa

NASA unveiling space suits that will be worn on the Artemis Mission. • Earlier today, NASA unveiled the two space suits that will be used on the Artemis Mission. The suits feature more functionality in terms of movement, particularly in the legs, an area neglected in improvement due to the low level of use from the lower body. The Artemis Mission hopes to see the first woman and next man set foot on the moon by 2024. The improved functionality extends beyond the legs and will help the astronauts with fine motor skills. The suits also protect the astronauts by insulating them from the extreme temperatures of space, as well as maintaining proper pressure on the body. • Photos curtesy of: NASA • If you find space related content interesting, please follow me for more!! • Like, Comment and Share to help me grow! •   #space     #science     #tech     #stem     #stemnews     #technology     #sciencenews     #technews     #engineering     #engineeringnews     #math     #news     #nasa     #technologynews     #artemismission     #moon     #mars     #usa

Meet William G. Kaelin Jr., professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School in Boston and one of the recipients of the 2019 Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine! His discovery provided a better understanding of the way the human body senses and adapts to varying levels of oxygen. Scientists have long known that oxygen is an essential ingredient for human life, but the discoveries provide new insights into the way our cells respond to changes in oxygen levels. The discoveries could also help lead to the development of new drugs for heart attack and stroke, said Matthew Vander Heiden, associate professor of biology and associate director at the Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research at MIT. Both conditions are marked by cell damage resulting from interruption of the delivery of oxygen-rich blood to critical tissues.   #stem     #science     #nobelprize     #medicine     #medical     #medicalschool     #STEMachievement     #STEMeducation     #STEMnews     #physiology     #biology     #oxygen
