I-70 EB closed as police investigate shooting

Tuesday, 19 November 2013 15:27 Published in Local News

EB I-70 is shut down at St. Louis Avenue near downtown as police investigate a shooting.  Officials didn't say when they expect the highway to reopen, but advise drivers to use an alternate route.   Police say a 26 year old man was shot by someone in a passing car near Cass and North 13th.  The victim is in stable condition.  Police are searching for suspects. 

The U.S. Department of Justice has announced it is launching an investigation into the St. Louis County Family Court.

The Justice Department is looking into whether the court is depriving juveniles of their constitutional rights.

The department says the focus will be on whether the court provides the required due process for all children appearing for delinquency proceedings, and whether the court provides juveniles equal protection regardless of race.

In a statement released Monday, Acting Assistant Attorney General Jocelyn Samuels said, “Protecting the constitutional rights of all children appearing in court is critical to achieving our goals of improving juvenile courts, increasing the public’s confidence in the juvenile justice system and maintaining public safety.” 

Saint Louis University to send spacecraft into orbit

Tuesday, 19 November 2013 10:34 Published in Local News

Now that it is complete, developers hope the project will soon be up in the air.  

Saint Louis University’s first spacecraft that has been designed, built, tested and operated by students at Parks College of Engineering, Aviation and Technology, is tentatively scheduled for launch today (Tuesday) from the Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport in Virginia.

The Air Force Research Laboratory and NASA Missouri Space Grant funded the project development and the launch of COPPER is sponsored by NASA.

COPPER's mission is to test the effectiveness of a commercial infrared camera for in-space navigation and object detection, as well as observing the Earth in the infrared spectrum.  

Parks College students will operate COPPER for 12 months from a radio control station in McDonnell-Douglas Hall on the SLU campus.

The spacecraft will naturally fall from orbit in about four years.  More than 50 undergraduate and graduate students worked to create COPPER over the past three years.
