UNIVERSITY RESEARCH
Two 'U
satellites
launched
into space
Student-built
devices to collect
data for NASA
By CLAIRE GOSCICKI
Daily Staff Reporter
Two University student-built satel-
lites; one about the size of a small tissue
box and the other slightly larger than a
loaf of bread, were launched into space
from the Vandenberg Air Force Base in
California early this morning.
The satellites, Radio Aurora Explor-
er-2 and M-Cubed, succeeded the
student-built Radio Aurora Explor-
er-i, which launched from Alaska last
November.
RAX-2 and M-Cubed will conduct
tests for officials at NASA. The RAX-2
will collect data on plasma density irreg-
ularities in the ionosphere, an upper
layer of the Earth's atmosphere. The
M-Cubed will test the Virtex-5 Field-
Programmable Gate Array, an image-
processing instrument.
Undergraduate and graduate students
have been working under the direction
of faculty adviser James Cutler, assistant
professor of aerospace engineering and
atmospheric, oceanic and space science,
to design, build and test' the satellites
in North Campus labs. RAX-2 has been
in development since January and the
M-Cubed since 2007.
University alum Allison Craddock,
engineering support manager for the
RAX-2 team, said data collected from
the RAX-2 will improve students' under-
standing ofhow satellite communication
is commonly disrupted.

'U' hosts third annual
Michigan Green

Engineering Conference

For the Daily
For the first time in the history of
the Michigan Green Chemistry Gover-
nor's Award, the governor presented the
award to the recipients.
At the third annual Michigan Green
Chemistry and Engineering Confer-
ence at the University's North Campus
Research Complex yesterday, Republican
Gov. Rick Snyder presented the award
in three categories - academics, small
business and large business - to winners
from across the state.
The conference works to bridge the
gap between research conducted by the
private sector and public institutions.
Sponsored by the Michigan Department
of Environmental Quality, the confer-
ence also aims to facilitate discussions
abouthowtoturnresearch and ideasinto
marketable products.
In his speech to the crowd of about
200 researchers and business leaders,
Snyder stressed the importance of rein-
venting Michigan's economy with green
technology.
"Green chemistry is fundamentally
about innovation ... and the best part
about these new ideas is that they're not
just new ideas that are entertaining, but
they're new ideas that can make a differ-
ence in people's lives," he said.

Law aims to curb illegal
alcohol sales, to take
effect Nov.1
By ANDREW SCHULMAN
Daily StaffReporter
For University students accus-
tomed to buying kegs of beer with the
help of older friends or the possession
of fake IDs, this Halloween might be a
last hurrah.
A state law set to take effect Tues-
day will require retailers to attach a
tag with the buyer's name, address,
phone number and state ID number

to each keg they sell. The measure is
intended to curb underage drinking
and put responsibility on keg retail-
ers. However, Ann Arbor keg sellers
say the law could undermine their
businesses.
Under the law, which passed with
bipartisan support in the state Legis-
lature last December, retailers must
keep records of keg sales for at least
one year. The records will be open to
police and other local law enforce-
ment officials for inspection at any
time.
Additionally, a person who removes
a tag from a keg may face as many as
93 days in jail and a fine of more than
$500.

State Rep. Mark Meadows (D-
East Lansing) said the law creates a
paper trail for police to hold the buyer
accountable in case officers discover
that a keg was illegally given to an
underage person.
"It was prompted by problems that
we had in the community in terms of
identifying the individual who's really
responsible for the problem," he said.
Meadows said establishments
that illegally sell alcohol to minors
are particular targets of the legisla-
tion. He added that the law passed
at the urging of many of the state's
public universities, but the Univer-
sity of Michigan was not among them,

F-Word questions
outfit choices
By ALEXANDRA MONDALEK
For the Daily
This weekend, hoards of students
will roam the streets of Ann Arbor
dressed as celebrities, witches, ani-
mals and pop-culture references,
while wearing costumes comprised of
tight and revealing clothing.
Emily Richard, shift manager at
American Apparel on Rast Liberty
Street, said the store fills with shop-
pers searchingfor the perfect costume
in the week leading up to Halloween
- the store's busiest time of the year.
Though American Apparel doesn't
offer packaged costumes, she said it
sells enough metallic spandex and
lacy leotards to meet the demand of
students trying to complete theircol-
legiate Halloween ensemble.
Richard said she thinks female stu-
dents often opt for more revealing cos-
tumes because of media influence.
"I think it's kind of easy to go the
slutty route because that's how Hal-

Producer Richard Perry
reminisces about his
time in School of Music
By LAUREN CASERTA
Daily Arts Writer
Before Auto-Tune and an odd sense
of fashion became enough to push any-
one to the Billboard Top 100, producers

held the power to transform raw talent
into legendary careers.
In the 1970s, University alum Rich-
ard Perry was a name associated with
that power. Perry will return to campus
today for a question-and-answer ses-
sion with partner and Academy Award-
winning actress Jane Fonda. The pair
will speak at Rackham Auditorium
from 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.

loween is marketed towards girls," she
said.
LSA freshman Abby Lyng and Engi-
neering freshman Jillian Jackson said
having the perfect costume is a one-
way ticket to all the best parties, as
students often compete for recogni-
tion for the time and money spent on
their costumes.

Lyng said she dislikes dressing up in
revealing costumes in the cold weath-
er, but said that for her and many of
her peers, practicality and sensibility
are forfeited on Halloween weekend.
