Statement Regarding the Attack on the American University in Afghanistan in Kabul
With broken hearts, we give our respects to the death of students, staff, and police that were made victims in the terrorist attack that occurred on Wednesday, August 24th, 2016 at the American University of Afghanistan, in Kabul. The IGCC has had the privilege in the past of partnering with American University faculty in research at this US-funded university. We identify strongly with their educational mission. We recognize the bravery it takes to teach and learn under constant threat, as well as the hope of what those activities represent for young Afghans.

The Chinese say the high-tech satellite they launched will clean up space debris, but its extendable robotic arm has some wondering whether it could have a more sinister purpose. IGCC Affiliated Researcher Kevin Pollpeter is quoted.
