Fort Campbell, KY – The room had six Soldiers sitting at tables with headsets on, moving their character across a computer screen, participating in what appeared to be a video game.
“The Virtual Battlespace System is pretty much a war-training video game, but the difference is we have a white cell that is operating behind the scenes, putting injects into the game and conducting actual face-to-face key leader engagements to simulate and add more dynamics to the game,” said 2nd Lt. Katherine Brennan, assistant S-2 with 1st Squadron, 32nd Cavalry Regiment, 1st Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault).

Clarksville, TN – Fed Chair Janet Yellen did not commit to raising rates in December, but she continued to lay the groundwork for an initial hike. She noted that with interest rates close to zero, the consequence of raising rates too soon or too late is not symmetric, which suggests that the Fed should be cautious as it prepares to tighten monetary policy.
However, she also noted that monetary policy affects the economy with a lag, and waiting too long raises risks for the economy and for financial stability.

Pasadena, CA – When NASA’s Juno mission arrives at Jupiter on July 4th, 2016, new views of the giant planet’s swirling clouds will be sent back to Earth, courtesy of its color camera, called JunoCam. But unlike previous space missions, professional scientists will not be the ones producing the processed views, or even choosing which images to capture.
Instead, the public will act as a virtual imaging team, participating in key steps of the process, from identifying features of interest to sharing the finished images online.
“This is really the public’s camera. We are hoping students and whole classrooms will get involved and join our team,” said Scott Bolton, Juno principal investigator at the Southwest Research Institute in San Antonio.
