NASA chooses UT Arlington team to develop potential Mars mission technology

NASA’s Game Changing Development Program awarded $513,356 to a UT Arlington team to develop improved methods for oxygen recovery and reuse aboard human spacecraft, a technology the agency says is crucial to “enable our human journey to Mars and beyond.” 

UT Arlington and three other teams are charged with increasing oxygen recovery to 75 percent or more.

Principal investigators on the UTA project are Brian Dennis, associate professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering; Krishnan Rajeshwar, Distinguished Professor of chemistry and biochemistry; and Norma Tacconi, research associate professor of chemistry and biochemistry.

History professor's book sheds new light on Louisiana-Florida borderlands

History Professor David Narrett's new book shows how the United States emerged as a successor empire to Great Britain in the Mississippi Valley and Gulf Coast during the American Revolutionary War.

The book examines historical characters while analyzing competing forces shaping history on a continental scale.

Adventurism and Empire: The Struggle for Mastery in the Louisiana-Florida Borderlands, 1762-1803 was recently published by the University of North Carolina Press. The 265-page book is groundbreaking for highlighting “colonial adventurism”—individual quests for profit and power in disputed frontier regions that were often beyond the reach of effective government power.
