- Prof. Louge is seeking undergraduate or MEng students to help with an experiment to be deployed on the International Space Station. The experiment brings a spherical drop of water to touch a porous medium, thus simulating the absorption of dew on desert sand surfaces. See previous involvement of Cornell students at http://grainflowresearch.mae.cornell.edu/granular_gases/granular_gases.html and our desert blog at http://grainflowresearch.mae.cornell.edu/geophysics/dunes/dunes.html. The experiment will be prototyped in the Upson droptower of Prof. Avedisian.
