  • Penn State Aims For The Moon With Its Lunar Lion Lander

    01/22/2014 9:58:39 PM PST · by BenLurkin · 7 replies
    The Lunar Lion team has already secured a launch space via Team Phoenicia, which will be sending multiple payloads to space in one launch. That launch system greatly reduces the cost of the team’s launch. “We’re the only [Lunar X-Prize] team that’s paid for a launch,” Penn State’s research Director of Development Steve Blake. The Lunar Lion team plans to launch in December of 2015. They’re currently planning on landing about 30 kilometers north of the Apollo 11 landing site at the Sea of Tranquility.

    UNIVERSITY PARK — The new building was beautiful, loud and packed to the rafters. And nearly all of those fans left with smiles on their faces. Aside from a few too many penalties, it was hard to ask for anything more of the Penn State ice hockey team in their new home, erupting for three third-period goals to put away Army 4-1 Friday night in the first game in Pegula Ice Arena. “When there’s a packed barn like that, and those fans are yelling,” said defenseman Nate Jensen, who scored the first goal in the new rink, “you get jitters,...

    Despite talk after Sandusky scandal, Penn State athletic machine churns on By Frank Fitzpatrick Inquirer Staff Writer An artist's rendering of the Pegula Ice Arena, which will open at Penn State next year. The arena is being built, at a cost of $102 million, mostly through a single donation. On July 23, as grim Penn State athletics employees watched NCAA president Mark Emmert cite their football program as an example of college sports' worst excesses, workers across the street were busy constructing a $102 million hockey arena set to open next year. Visible all around University Park that morning were...

    (CNN) -- In a year marred with controversy and national notoriety, Penn State University alumni and boosters finally have something to smile about. In fiscal year 2011-2012, the school earned $208.7 million in donations -- the second-highest annual amount in school history -- according to a release from the Development and Alumni Relations division. Penn State spokesman David LeTorre said the donations "send a loud and distinct message," in what has been a particularly challenging time for the school. "Despite the things that have happened with Jerry Sandusky, Penn State never really lost the support of its alumni," La Torre...
  • Scandal at Penn State Poses Tough Choices for N.C.A.A.

    The New York Times ^ | Saturday, July 14, 2012 | TIM ROHAN
    In N.C.A.A. parlance, “lack of institutional control” is a hazy, almost undefinable term. It is also the organization’s ultimate admonishment, the phrase it utters before handing down its most severe penalties. Now, in light of the child sexual abuse scandal at Penn State, there is some question about whether those nebulous words will be used by the N.C.A.A. to impose serious sanctions on the Nittany Lions football program, perhaps even forcing the team to shut down for a time, the so-called death penalty.

    The embattled members of Penn State's Board of Trustees quietly have decided to leave Joe Paterno's statue standing -- at least for now and, some hope, forever, according to sources with firsthand knowledge of the trustees' private discussions this week. The trustees' reluctance to remove the statue is motivated, in part, by a desire not to offend alumni and students who adore the late coach despite the damning findings of his role in the Jerry Sandusky child sexual abuse cover-up detailed in the Freeh report, the sources said. Some trustees also said in interviews they want to resist being pressured...

    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Documents filed by the Attorney General’s office indicate new evidence has been uncovered against several former Penn State officials, including Graham Spanier and Gary Schultz. In documents obtained by KDKA-TV investigators, the Attorney General’s Office indicates former vice president Schultz kept a secret file with allegations regarding Sandusky and sex abuse. This comes after an NBC report alleges Spanier did not report alleged abuse because it would be humane to Sandusky to not report the matter. “Only recently was the commonwealth provided with a file containing documents relating to incidents involving Sandusky,” a statement from the Attorney...

    He knew, in his own words from the grand jury: In the testimony, Paterno said he "knew inappropriate action was taken by Jerry Sandusky with a youngster" after a meeting with then-graduate assistant Mike McQueary, who allegedly saw Sandusky sexually abusing a boy in a locker room shower the previous night, but did not inform police and waited at least a day to inform his boss, athletic director Tim Curley, because he "didn't want to interfere with their weekends."

    With a thick piece of black duct tape covering the Penn State logo on his baseball cap and a pair of signs criticizing the university, Jon Matko knew he wasn’t going to make many friends at Beaver Stadium on Saturday. But he didn’t care. The 2000 Penn State graduate and father of a 4-year-old boy said he felt he had to do something to remind Nittany Lions fans about the victims in the school’s sexual abuse scandal. So while kids posed for pictures next to the Joe Paterno statue and others chanted, “We Are” before Saturday’s game, Matko stood on...

    STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) -- The Nebraska and Penn State players gathered at midfield before the game, kneeling together for a long moment in a quiet stadium. Sometimes, the most powerful statements are the simplest. A child sex-abuse scandal involving former assistant Jerry Sandusky has rocked Penn State to its core, cost Joe Paterno his job and prompted a week's worth of soul-searching. Saturday's game was a combination of pep rally, cleansing and tribute, fans and players balancing their wish to show love for Penn State and Paterno while also wanting to support victims of abuse. "This has been one...
