SSU Dolphin Research Hits Headlines in Newspaper!

Dr. Marthajane Caldwell, Post-Doctoral Research Associate (Marine Sciences Program in the Dept of Natural Sciences and Mathematics), and SSU students Cherita Nix and Erika Adkinson working in the ambitious Dolphin Research Program of SSU hit the headlines in the Savannah Morning News (Sunday Edition, Accent, June 8, 2003).

The article, by Jenel Few, reports on SSU's Dolphin Research Program and on the trio's boat cruise for a rendezvous with dolphins.

In Dr. Caldwell's words, "... for the most part, the local dolphin population is without major scars or mutilations because they stay in intercoastal waters. ...... findings will ultimately guide future dolphin management decisions. .... We can use this data to help protect local populations of dolphin".

Marthajane, Cherita and Erika! Congratulations!   Keep up the good work!

$5000 Scholarship from Georgia Department of Transportation!

Tom Coleman, Commissioner of the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT), was present at Savannah State University on Friday, May 23, 2003 in the Colston Administration Building to present a $5,000 scholarship to Jeremy B.

In 2004, the hottest car in the world will have a top speed of 10 ft. per min. — if, that is, the world happens to be Mars. NASA is currently testing two robotic rovers to send to the Red Planet in a mission set to launch next summer. The two solar-powered vehicles will travel up to 330 ft. — compared with Sojourner's 16 ft. — a day while using their nine cameras and three spectrometers to make scientific observations. First on the agenda? Looking for traces of water.
