Presented by Lisa Rueschhoff, Air Force Research Laboratory Hill Hall 202 Ceramic materials offer great advantages over their metal counterparts, due to their lower density, higher hardness, wear resistance, and higher melting temperatures. However, ceramics are often unusable in high-stress applications due to low fracture toughness causing catastrophic brittle failure, as well as the high cost and difficulty of forming complex shapes. This research addresses these limitations through the preparation of highlyloaded aqueous ceramic suspensions that can be used with,…

Science fiction and horror films frequently reflect (and sometimes shape) our cultural anxieties about nature. As we work to respond to contemporary environmental issues such as pollution and mass extinction, these pop culture narratives take up such issues both directly and indirectly. Some horror films, for instance, imagine monstrous animals attacking humans (Jaws) or reveal the reveal the dangers of isolated spaces (Texas Chainsaw Massacre). Some science fiction films explore the potential consequences of our current practices of pollution (Wall-E)…
