On Jan. 31, 1958, the U.S. launched its first satellite, Explorer 1, into orbit, marking the nation’s entry into the space race — a rivalry with the Soviet Union over the achievements of the two states’ respective space programs. With many firsts — the first satellite, dog and man in orbit and the first man on the moon — this era was one of the most intense bursts of scientific innovation in human history. However, for all its glory, the space race suffered from one key weakness that led to its early and dramatic decline: It was motivated not by a desire to advance mankind, but by fear of the enemy. The U.S. should not make this mistake again; it must work to renew its long-term investments into space exploration.

Dartmouth’s mask requirements, weekly testing and restricted gatherings seem to have successfully staved off the virus this fall. Even as students returned to campus for the College’s first term of on-campus operations amid the pandemic, COVID-19 positivity rates remained below a tenth of a percent.

Despite the partial return of students to campus, the recovery of the financial markets and the prospect of widespread vaccinations, the College is, financially speaking, not out of the snowy New Hampshire woods. Dartmouth will face an estimated $91 million operating loss for fiscal year 2021 as it works to return to normal operations and begins planning for the long-term budgetary impacts of COVID-19.
As Hanover Police continue to investigate the vandalism of the menorah on the Green reported last Wednesday, the department has obtained a video that may show two perpetrators.
The litany of complaints is well-known at this point: a lawsuit on behalf of sexual harassment victims in psychological and brain sciences department, an open letter from Black faculty, staff and students highlighting institutional racism at Dartmouth and a graduate student forced to resort to a hunger strike. Despite the College’s rhetoric, Dartmouth has not taken sufficient concrete steps to address harassment, discrimination and harmful power dynamics in its community. The College must establish an independent ombuds office to help mediate conflict and resolve disputes among faculty, staff and students.

On Nov. 20, a team of Dartmouth students won the 17th annual national College Fed Challenge for the first time in the College’s 10 years of participation in the competition. The competition, which is organized by the Federal Reserve, takes place in two parts: a 15-minute scripted presentation in which students role-play as members of the Fed’s Federal Open Market Committee and provide a monetary policy recommendation, and a question and answer session about their recommendation in front of a panel of judges, who are members of the Fed.
