Inside Quality Digest Live for June 30, 2017

This epoch-spanning episode included medical wisdom of the Middle Ages and space age junk

Published: Monday, July 3, 2017 - 12:00

The June 30, 2017, episode of QDL offered a wrinkle in time, of sorts: not only orbiting debris and medieval medicine, but moments in the here and now such as our interview with Keith Bevan of the Coordinate Metrology Society and the UK’s National Physical Laboratory, and an on-the-go version of the Ohno Circle. Here’s a closer look:

“Space Junk: The Cluttered Frontier”
MIT professor Kerri Cahoy and former graduate student Mike Pascual devised a sensing technique, known as laser polarimetry, to detect the surface features of space junk from the surface of Earth, thereby helping spacecraft avoid potentially ruinous collisions.

 

“Medieval Medical Books Could Hold the Recipe for New Antibiotics”
The wisdom of the ages is a real thing, and antique remedies and cures offer powerful insights into healing modalities that can help medical professionals today.

 

Interview: Keith Bevan
Keith Bevan is the interim group leader for training at the National Physical Laboratory in the United Kingdom as well as the chairperson of the Coordinate Metrology Society; the group’s annual conference, the CMSC, takes place next month in Park City, Utah.

 

“The Traveling Ohno Circle”
This particularly thoughtful thought piece from QD’s own Christopher Martin shows the power of observation anywhere and at any time.
