SCIENCE AND RESEARCH
A Device Turns Desert Air into Water
Last October, a University of California, Berkeley, team headed down to the Arizona desert, plopped their newest prototype water harvester into the backyard of a tract home and started sucking water out of the air without any power other than sunlight. The successful field test of their larger, next generation harvester proved what the team had predicted earlier in 2017: that the water harvester can extract drinkable water every day/night cycle at very low humidity and at low cost, making it ideal for people living in arid, water-starved areas of the world.

SCIENCE AND SPACE
STEM in 30: The Biology of Long Term Spaceflight
Since the first humans launched into space in 1961, there have been questions about how the human body would react to being beyond Earth’s atmosphere. While most of the basic questions have been answered, many remain, and are the basis for continued research on the International Space Station. STEM in 30 explores this research and the impact of long-term space travel on the human body.
