ABSTRACT
The article presents technical news briefs in the U.S. According to the consensus from a recent conference in the U.S. capital, "Engineers in America's Future: Shortage or Surplus?," there will be a shortage of engineers in three or four years in the country. According to a study by the Government Accounting Office, the U.S. NASA needs to tighten up rules for ground testing of spacecraft hardware. The U.S. National Highway traffic Safety Administration is urging automobile manufacturers not to buy bolts and other metal fasteners that are not documented for strength.
