The flight of a rocket vehicle in the equatorial plane of a rotating earth is considered with possible disturbances in the atllIosphere due to changes in density, in tellIperature, and in wind speed. These atllIospheric disturbances together with possible deviations in weight and in 1lI01lIent of inertia of the vehicle tend to change the flight path away(More)
The confirmation of excess power production and nuclear product evolution in various hydrided metal systems has led many to speculate about technological applications. Here we present a preliminary assessment of how "cold fusion" reactions may affect the technologies that are critical to space exploration. In particular, the implications for space(More)
by Carl Preston Evans, III " It is difficult to say what is impossible, for the dream of yesterday is the hope of today and the reality of tomorrow. " —Dr. To my grandparents, Lottie and James Patterson, for their never-ending, unconditional love, and support of me. Because of them, I have been able to see and do things that they were unable to. In the(More)
Ultrastructural changes in the cortical cytoskeleton during wound-induced cytoplasmic contraction were examined in the coenocytic green alga Ernodesmis verticillata. Both calmodulin (CaM) and actin were localized in intact and contracting cells by immunogold labeling. Within 5 min after wounding, compact microfilament (MF) bundles were observed which(More)
The involvement of calmodulin (CaM) in wound-induced cytoplasmic contractions in E. verticillata was investigated. Indirect immunofluorescence of CaM in intact cells showed a faint, reticulate pattern of fluorescence in the cortical cytoplasm. Diffuse fluorescence was evident deeper within the cytoplasm. In contracted cells, CaM co-localizes with actin in(More)
