Spectrum powers up in energy issue

The Winter 2007 issue of MIT Spectrum, "Powering Up: Confronting the Global Energy Challenge," focuses on energy and the Institute's leadership role in solving the growing crisis in energy resources. The new issue includes features on how researchers at MIT are making ethanol production more efficient and building smaller, more energy-efficient auto engines; how they are designing a mostly human-powered vehicle; how they may use chemical engineering to produce new fuel cells, and how the history of previous energy crises--particularly the gasoline-price spike in the early 1970s--has much to teach us about today's economic and political pressures.

MIT Spectrum may be obtained through the Office of Resource Development at x3-3834 or online at
