Spring 2018 Edition of IIT Magazine Is Now Available Online

Carbon, an element found in cells as well as in diamonds, also can be formed into long nanotubes, structures that are unusually strong and stiff. An artist’s rendition of a thin carbon nanotube as part of an elaborate space elevator project by the Obayashi Corporation accompanies the cover story of the spring 2018 edition of IIT Magazine. Also in this issue are stories about alumnus John Brophy, who develops ion propulsion systems for space travel, and psychologist Kristin Krueger, who incorporates improv into her group therapy. Catalog shoppers may enjoy reading about engineering alumnus Mohammed Faraj and his team at the Hammacher Schlemmer Institute. On the go?
