HOBOKEN, N.J. -- The Center for Maritime Systems at Stevens Institute of Technology recently acquired three pieces of advanced research equipment through a $522,450 grant from the Defense University Research Instrumentation Program (DURIP). The first piece of equipment, the Computerized Numerically Controlled (CNC) machine, was installed on Thursday, December 6, 2007, and will be used for constructing ship models, appendages and other hydrodynamic research equipment.

The other two machines-a Planar Motion Mechanism (PMM) for maneuvering studies, and a Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) system for flow visualization-are scheduled to be installed by January 2008.

#537 Science Journalism, Hold the Hype
Everyone's seen a piece of science getting over-exaggerated in the media. Most people would be quick to blame journalists and big media for getting in wrong. In many cases, you'd be right.
