Thank you, Ted Mitchell, for that kind introduction and for hosting Diane Jones and me this morning. I'm really looking forward to our conversation, but before we begin, I want to make one thing clear: I believe American higher education is the envy of the world. Thank you for the contributions you have each made to make it so. But in order to keep it that way, there are a few challenges to address. Like all of education, higher education is due for a rethink.

US District Judge Jesse Furman ordered a stop to the plans to add the question to the form, unless the government can cure ?the legal defects? laid out in the opinion. In Mr Furman?s opinion, released on Tuesday, the judge states that it is unlikely he will be the last judge to weigh in on the census question.

Seeds just sprouted on the Moon for the first time in history

Seeds just sprouted on the Moon for the first time in historyIn a development that will likely have huge implications for the future of space travel, China's Chang'e 4 lunar lander successfully managed to plant and sprout cotton seeds on the Moon. This of course marks the first time that a plant has ever grown on the Moon, with the seeds naturally sprouting in a specially designed and concealed container. Incidentally, the Chang'e 4 lander first touched down on the far side of the Moon earlier this month, an impressive achievement in and of itself. In a post from the South China Morning Post, we learn that the cotton seeds were transported in an airtight container comprised of soil, air, water, and more. Interestingly, the container itself was designed to maintain an internal temperature of about 77 degrees, a key point given how wildly the temperature fluctuates on the Moon's surface. Some other seeds that reportedly sprouted include rapeseed and potato seeds. Another point of interest is that Chinese scientists managed to design containers that were able to transport natural Earth light in an effort to "aid photosynthesis." Professor Liu Hanlong was in charge of the mission and issued the following statement on the accomplishment: "We have given consideration to future survival in space. Learning about these plants' growth in a low-gravity environment would allow us to lay the foundation for our future establishment of space base." The overarching implications of this successful experiment are huge. Put simply, it means that humans in the future might be able to establish a sustainable ecosystem on the Moon without having to solely rely upon replenishing supplies from trips back and forth between the Moon and Earth.

The Game is Changing. What Will Be Expected of You?

“When we were doing our studies for the National Academies, the typical first response of university presidents or CFOs or provosts was to say: ‘I understand things are changing very rapidly, but I'll ask my CIO to take care of it. The CIO usually can.’ We would then ask: ‘Suppose you wake up in the morning and come in to your office and nothing works anymore. You can't access e-mail. All of your course systems have collapsed. Who fixes the problem?’ They begin to scratch their heads, and pretty soon it's like the five phases of grief. They start off with denial and anger, move through bargaining and depression, and finally reach acceptance.” — James J. Duderstadt, Change and the Research University
