A Colorado man made history at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) this summer when he became the first bilateral shoulder-level amputee to wear and simultaneously control two of the Laboratory’s Modular Prosthetic Limbs. Most importantly, Les Baugh, who lost both arms in an electrical accident 40 years ago, was able to operate the system by simply thinking about moving his limbs, performing a variety of tasks during a short training period.

“Fly By By,” an educational parody of NSync’s “Bye Bye Bye,” was created by the interns of Johns Hopkins APL’s Space Exploration Sector. It is a tribute to the historic Pluto fly by made by NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft on July 14, 2015, and to the scientific and engineering achievements of the mission. The lyrics and scenes in this video have been re-imagined in order to inform the public about the Pluto fly by and New Horizons mission. New Horizons is part of NASA’s New Frontiers Program, managed by the agency’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala. APL designed, built, and operates the New Horizons spacecraft and manages the mission for NASA’s Science Mission Directorate.

The Scale of Discovery educator workshop was held on Saturday, April 26, 2014 at four sites: Pasadena, CA; Houston, TX; Bozeman MT; and Laurel, MD. The workshop featured panels of NASA scientists and engineers from the six current Discovery and New Frontiers missions, along with demonstrations of a variety of activities. Panelists at the Applied Physics Lab, "Far In, Far Out": Hal Weaver, New Horizons Gabe Rogers, New Horizons Ralph McNutt, MESSENGER Olivier Barnouin, OSIRIS-REx
Weekly pre-flyby updates aired June 23 on NASA TV provides an overview of the New Horizons mission, the spacecraft and its suite of instruments being prepared for a July 14 flyby, and a summary of Pluto science to date.
A trip to the ocean is a privilege, and one that doesn’t come around very often. But thanks to School of Oceanography professor Charles Eriksen, his team and their colleagues in the UW’s Applied Physics Laboratory, we can learn more about how the ocean works through seagliders. These buoyancy-driven devices operate for a full year for the same cost as a day of ship time — no wetsuit required. Learn more at: http://www.apl.washington.edu/ and http://ocean.washington.edu
