Apptronik, co-founded by Luis Sentis, will unveil its humanoid robot this summer.

Watch this KXAN News report featuring the Texas Rocket Engineering Lab (TREL). The team's goal? To become the first collegiate team ever to design, build and launch a liquid-propellant rocket to the edge of space.

Nanshu Lu's new ultrathin, lightweight electronic tattoo that attaches to the chest for continuous, mobile heart monitoring outside of a clinical setting is featured in Cardiovascular Business.


This opinion piece in The Daily Texan features the Texas Rocket Engineering Lab and the team's rocket, Halcyon. "The Texas Rocket Engineering Lab is preparing students for the new space era with hands-on experience building and launching Halcyon."

Universal Hydrogen, an aviation company co-founded by ASE/EM professor John-Paul Clarke, made history with its successful first flight of a hydrogen-powered airplane. The flight is the largest hydrogen fuel cell powered airplane ever to take to the skies and largest airplane to cruise principally on hydrogen. 

Aerospace engineering alumnus Paul "Rusty" Thomas will be serving in a dual role at Sierra Space, as Senior Vice President and General Manager for the Space Applications business sector, and as the corporation's Chief Technology Officer.

Nanshu Lu's work to develop a palm e-tattoo that measures emotional stress is featured in this KXAN News story.

Can robots and humans co-exist in public? Luis Sentis is leading research that will bring a fleet of delivery robots to The University of Texas at Austin campus, where researchers will study how humans interact with them. Watch this CBS News report to see the robots in action.

John-Paul Clarke, and ASE/EM professor and cofounder of Universal Hydrogen, weighs in on the future of hydrogen fuel for cargo operations in this Grist piece.

Rui Huang is featured in this UT Portugal Program podcast, Cross Talks. This episode features work the team is doing to create smart surfaces that monitor deposition of thin film layers. 

More airports plan to use "swoop" landings, or the continuous descent approach, created by John-Paul Clarke and colleagues. The method saves fuel, cuts emissions and reduces noise, but can be hard to implement in busy airports.

This piece in The Daily Texan features a collaborative project between the Texas Rocket Engineering Lab and senior aerospace engineering design students who plan to design a propulsive landing system to bring rocket engines safely back to Earth.

Luis Sentis is featured in this Scripps news video on the research project he is leading to bring the largest study of human-robot interactions to campus.
