Questions Begin and End Here
“Shhhhhhhhhhhh.” It’s subtle—like a buzz of energy, yet it’s indicative of so much more. It’s a range of dynamics at work, and pinpointing the source of a sound simply kicks off the larger journey. An exploration into noise cancellation uncovers applications for a new, high-temperature composite that enables advanced sensory technologies in self-regulating environmental systems.
Now, we may be talking about how a disturbance identified during jet engine testing led to the development of more autonomous climate controls in environmentally friendly facilities. Or we may be describing what happens here on any given day, where the buzz—the energy of inquisitive minds eager to question how something can be better—kicks off cross-disciplinary collaboration that culminates in innovations that advance our world. You won’t know the answer unless you’re curious enough to stop and listen.
