NASA's Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center has developed a prototype of an advanced resistive exercise device (ARED) that can perform a number of different exercises on one machine. Conceived to help astronauts maintain strength and endurance in low-gravity environments, the ARED could also be advantageous in terrestrial settings. Read more here.

System for Testing Thermal Insulation of Pipes

Thermal and flow conditions are carefully controlled to minimize errors. An apparatus and method have been developed for measuring the rates of leakage of heat into pipes carrying liquids, the purpose of the measurements being to quantify the thermal performance of the insulation system. The apparatus is designed primarily for testing pipes used to carry cryogenic liquids, but can also be used for measuring the thermal performance of other insulated pipes or piping systems.
