James Green , director of NASA’s Planetary Sciences Division, wowed a standing-room-only Georgia Tech crowd on Monday with a guided tour of Europa, Mars, the dwarf planet and former asteroid Ceres, and other celestial bodies that might contain the basic recipes for life.
Raquel Lieberman has started the year with excellent news: She’s been asked to serve on the academic editorial board of a major scientific journal, and she and her research team can continue their work on early-stage glaucoma, thanks to this month’s renewal of a $1.48 million National Institutes of Health (NIH) grant.
David M. Collard is the recipient of the 2017 Felton Jenkins, Jr. Hall of Fame Faculty Award for the research and comprehensive universities sector of the University System of Georgia (USG). The award, which invites nominations from across USG, recognizes a faculty member for strong commitment to teaching and student success.
The office of M.G. Finn in the Molecular Science and Engineering Building blends chemistry and jazz. Amid an extensive library of science literature and textbooks is a large photograph of jazz musicians posing in 1950s Harlem. The black-and-white photo evokes creativity, innovation, and inspiration; it hangs directly across Finn’s desk and occupies a prominent space in his field of vision. The juxtaposition of keen intellectual pursuits against avid enthusiasm for improvisation reflects Finn’s approach to scientific leadership.
The versatile frog tongue can grab wet, hairy and slippery surfaces with equal ease. It does a lot better than our engineered adhesives – not even household tapes can firmly stick to wet or dusty surfaces. What makes this tongue even more impressive is its speed: Over 4,000 species of frog and toad snag prey faster than a human can blink. What makes the frog tongue so uniquely sticky? Our group aimed to find out.
