This edition features Dr. Joan Fuller, program director, and Maj. Michelle Ewy, program manager, at the Air Force Office of Scientific Research's Aerospace, Chemical and Material Science Directorate, discussing how basic research plays a crucial role in the development of future Air Force technologies. They will explain the process of finding the world's top researchers and some of the breakthrough technologies that have resulted from basic research in their fields. As Women's History Month comes to a close, they will also share some words of advice for young women interested in pursuing scientific careers.

  • This edition features a discussion about the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program, more commonly known as "HAARP." It is a joint Air Force and Navy research program to enhance our knowledge of the physics of the ionosphere and radio science. The ionosphere, an upper atmosphere layer between about 60 and 200 miles in altitude, contains charged particles created by solar activity. These charged particles can impact long-range communications and space operations. HAARP is a research program and facility whose goal is to understand the impact of the ionosphere on communications and space systems and to aid in the development of methods to improve DoD's utilization of these systems.
