University of Louisville Announces Resignation of Robert Rounsavall III from the Board of Trustees

Robert Rounsavall III has resigned his position on the University of Louisville Board of Trustees shortly after a contentious board meeting was held that addressed a string of scandals haunting the university. The resignation leaves the board with two vacancies after Paul Diaz, the former CEO of Kindred Healthcare Inc., resigned from the board in February, claiming Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin was trying to nullify his appointment to the board last year. Rounsavall is a local real estate developer and manager of Dixie Real Properties LLC. He has served on the U of L board of trustees since 2010, and his term was set to expire this summer.

Paul Diaz Resigns from the University of Louisville Board of Trustees

Paul Diaz has resigned from the University of Louisville Board of Trustees after less than one year of his six-year term. Diaz was former CEO of Kindred Healthcare Inc.

NASA Selects New Technologies for Parabolic Flights and Suborbital Launches

NASA's Flight Opportunities Program has selected eight space technology payloads for reduced gravity flights on board specialized aircraft and commercial suborbital reusable launch vehicles (sRLVs). These flights provide a valuable platform to mature cutting-edge technologies, validating feasibility and reducing technical risks and costs before infusion into future space missions. Five of the newly selected proposals requested parabolic flights, which involve a flight maneuver that uses a dramatic half-minute drop of the aircraft though the sky to simulate weightlessness. Two proposed projects will fly on sRLVs for testing during longer periods of weightlessness. An additional payload will fly on both platforms. Selected for parabolic flights on aircraft are: "Zero Gravity Mass Measurement Device Parabolic Flight Test" - John Wetzel, principal investigator, Orbital Technologies Corporation, Madison, Wisconsin. "Evaluation of the Biosleeve Gesture Control Interface for Telerobotics in Microgravity" - Christopher Assad, principal investigator, Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, California. "Flight Demonstration of a Gravity-Insensitive, Microchannel Membrane Phase Separator" - Weibo Chen, principal investigator, Creare Inc., Hanover, New Hampshire. "PRIME-4.0: Miniaturized and Reusable Asteroid Regolith Microgravity Experiment for Suborbital and Orbital Use" - Josh Colwell, principal investigator, University of Central Florida, Orlando, Florida. "Testing of a Novel IVA (Intra-Vehicular Activity) Space Suit" - Ted Southern, principal investigator, Final Frontier Design, LLC, Brooklyn, New York. "Evolved Medical Microgravity Suction Device" - Charles Cuttino, principal investigator, Orbital Medicine, Inc., Midlothian, Virginia. Selected for flights on sRLVs are: "Suborbital Evaluation of an Aqueous Immersion Surgical System for Reduced Gravity" - George Pantalos, principal investigator, University of Louisville, Louisville, Kentucky. "Suborbital Particle Aggregation and Collision Experiment-2 (SPACE-2)" - Julie Brisset, principal investigator, University of Central Florida, Orlando, Florida. "Evolved Medical Microgravity Suction Device" - Charles Cuttino, principal investigator, Orbital Medicine, Inc., Midlothian, Virginia. The selectees' experiments are expected to take to the skies in 2016 and 2017 on flights with U.S. commercial providers arranged by the proposers. The selected proposals requested parabolic flights from Integrated Spaceflight Services, Inc. and ZeroG Corporation. Suborbital reusable launch vehicle flights were requested from Blue Origin, EXOS Aerospace Systems & Technologies and Virgin Galactic.
