Ryerson Alumni - Winter 2018 - 8

GOULD STREET

The proposed Hyperloop
would consist of two massive
tubes connecting San
Francisco and Los Angeles,
transporting pods at speeds
of up to 700 mph. Aerospace
engineering graduate
students, Graeme Klim,
Min Prasad Adhikari, Wintta
Ghebreiyesus; 2017 graduates
Moeid Elahi, Tayo Shoniba
Re; and undergraduate
Jesse Brito, designed a
wheel-deployment system

that would act as a safety
precaution if the pod's
magnetic levitation or air
bearings fail.
The technology has a
patent pending at the U.S.
Patent Office, and the system
is on display at the Safran
Landing Systems headquarters
in France. It will be shown in
Rome, Singapore, Las Vegas
and China during the Safran
Landing Systems Airlines
Conference. -Antoinette Mercurio

PSYCHOLOGY

DID YOU
KNOW...

Ryerson is the
most-applied-to
university in
Ontario relative to
available space.

Are you afraid
of the dark?
No matter how old we get,
darkness can still scare us.
Walking down a dark street.
Sitting in the dark watching a
horror movie. The lights going
out. On CNN.com, psychology
professor Martin Antony said
that "in the dark, our visual
sense vanishes, and we are
unable to detect who or what
is around us. We rely on our
visual system to help protect
us from harm. Being scared
of the dark is a prepared fear."
Although fear is a natural
emotion, it can become an
issue if it gets excessive,
Antony notes. "Excessive fear
of the dark can be caused by
a variety of factors. This fear
can then become a phobia
- specifically nyctophobia -
when it begins interfering
with relationships or work."
Working with a professional
to be gradually exposed to
each fear can help alleviate
the phobia, Antony said.
