Mississippi State University will host a parade in downtown Starkville on Friday, July 2 at 5:30 pm. He celebrated his 2021 National Baseball Championship, which was eventually held at Dudy Noble Field at PolkDement Stadium. This event is free and open to the public.
# The parade route begins at Little Duy on University Avenue and ends outside home plate at Dardinoble Stadium. According to news released by MSU, the parade will include Diamond Dawg student athletes and coaches, athletic sports and campus administrators, and other guests and winners.
#MSU will hold a ceremony at Dudy Noble Field at 6:15 pm. Tribute to head coach Chris Lemonis and his 2021 national champion Diamond Dawgs, who recently defeated Vanderbilt University in a three-game championship series at TD Ameritrade Park in Omaha, Nebraska. Lemonis, Michigan State University President Mark Keenum, athletic director John Cohen and Starkville Mayor Lynn Spruill will speak at the ceremony.
#Gates by Dudy Noble Field will open at 2:30 p.m. Seats will be admitted on a first-come, first-served basis. Fans can bring coolers, snacks and drinks to the stadium. Humphrey Stadium, which opens at 4 p.m., will provide overflowing seats. Free parking spaces will be provided on campus.

#MSU Professor received nuclear power research funding
#Zhenhua Tian, Assistant Professor of Aerospace Engineering at Mississippi State University, served as the principal investigator, received $800,000 in funding for the development and verification of wireless ultrasonic sensor arrays for real-time monitoring of stored spent nuclear fuel Welding container.
# This grant is part of a US$1.6 million grant provided by the US Department of Energy for two separate projects. Associate Professor Rinat Gabitov of the Department of Earth Sciences received another $800,000 in prize money for a project to improve the functionality of the design barrier system by adding phosphate minerals to the filling mixture.
# According to a statement from MSU, both grants are part of 99 advanced nuclear power projects announced by the US Department of Energy as part of its efforts to strengthen the resilience and use of nuclear power.
# Tian project collaborators include Junbo Zhao, assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering at Michigan State University, and researchers from Oak Ridge National Laboratory and Intelligent Automation Corporation. And Orano Federal Services, LLC. Gabitov’s project is part of a collaboration with researchers from the University of Alabama and the Los Alamos National Laboratory.

#JSU Mississippi Space Grant Consortium Project
#Kejun Wen, assistant professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Jackson State University, recently received a $ 28,741 grant from the Mississippi Space Grant Consortium to explore the use of bionic building materials in space .
# Grant The approach is to study the effects of atmospheric pressure and other curing conditions, using a new technology called microbial-induced calcite precipitation, the JSU said. The purpose of this research is to develop a cost-effective and environmentally friendly method of combining soil particles to strengthen and improve soil. The press release stated that project
#Wen will also explore potential applications of bionic building materials on other planets. The technical objective of the proposed research project is to examine the influence of different reaction environments on the mechanical behavior of these biomimetic materials.
#Affiliates of the Mississippi Space Grant Consortium sponsors information projects, conferences, summer tutoring by teachers, and provides scholarships and scholarship opportunities for graduate and undergraduate students in NASA-related STEM fields.
