Space Scoop

See the new device NASA is testing to chip pieces off an asteroid. The new tool for astronauts was not developed in NASA labs, but rather at High Point University right here in North Carolina. Scientists are interested in asteroids because they haven't changed much since the dawn of the solar system. Asteroid fragments that the "chip and ship" could capture would help give scientists an early picture of the solar system.

Mechatronics

Mechatronics blends principles of design and engineering to create the most innovative, economical, appropriate and elegant solutions to engineering problems. Watch engineers and students from NC State University and UNC Asheville put mechatronics into action.
