Alex Demetrick reports.
From satellite navigation to neurally-controlled prosthetic limbs to game-changing air defense networking, the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory has made thousands of critical contributions to national security and space exploration during its 75 year history. Music composed and performed by students of the Peabody Institute of the Johns Hopkins University.
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.

A pioneering surgical technique has allowed Johnny Matheny, an amputee, to attach the Modular Prosthetic Limb developed by APL directly to his residual limb, enabling a greater range of motion and comfort than previously possible.

Mission controllers at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) in Laurel, Md., confirmed today that NASA’s MErcury Surface, Space ENvironment, GEochemistry, and Ranging (MESSENGER) spacecraft impacted the surface of Mercury on April 30. MESSENGER was launched on August 3, 2004, and it began orbiting Mercury on March 18, 2011. The spacecraft completed its primary science objectives by March 2012. Because MESSENGER’S initial discoveries raised important new questions and the payload remained healthy, the mission was extended twice, allowing the spacecraft to make observations from extraordinarily low altitudes and capture images and information about the planet in unprecedented detail.

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
Researchers at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory in Laurel, Maryland, have developed an innovative unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) that can stay on station beneath the water, then launch into the air to perform a variety of missions. The Corrosion Resistant Aerial Covert Unmanned Nautical System — or CRACUNS — is a submersible UAV that can be launched from a fixed position underwater, or from an unmanned underwater vehicle (UUV). A team from APL’s Force Projection Sector worked with fabrication experts in the Research and Exploratory Development Department to create a new type of unmanned vehicle that can operate effectively in two very different arenas: air and water.

“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.

What is APPLIED PHYSICS? What does APPLIED PHYSICS mean? APPLIED PHYSICS meaning - APPLIED PHYSICS definition - APPLIED PHYSICS explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Applied physics is physics which is intended for a particular technological or practical use. It is usually considered as a bridge or a connection between physics and engineering. "Applied" is distinguished from "pure" by a subtle combination of factors such as the motivation and attitude of researchers and the nature of the relationship to the technology or science that may be affected by the work. It usually differs from engineering in that an applied physicist may not be designing something in particular, but rather is using physics or conductin...
Researchers from the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) partnered with Johns Hopkins University students this summer on a pilot program called CIRCUIT (Connectomics Institute for Reconstructing Cortex: Understanding Intelligence Together). The ten-week summer internship program combined a sponsored research opportunity to map the brain to nanoscale resolution, intensive training, and mentor support. CIRCUIT undergraduate students from a variety of academic backgrounds collaborated to help proofread brain maps that were generated through the Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA) Machine Intelligence from Cortical Networks (MICrONS) program. MICrONS is an applied research program by IARPA that seeks to reverse engineer the algorithms of the brain to...
