Micah Schaible Earns First Place in Huskey Oral

Engineering Physics graduate student Micah Schaible won first place in the 2014 Robert J. Huskey Exhibition sponsored by University of Virginia Graduate School of Arts & Sciences with his talk Squeezing Water from Rocks: Solar modification of the lunar surface. The research exhibition provides members of the University graduate student community a chance to present their research to fellow graduate students and professors. The Huskey Exhibition reaches out across disciplines and brings the broad spectrum of graduate research into one place. Micah’s oral presentation covered the formation of hydroxyl in silicates in space, explaining the circumstances governing the presence of water on the Moon.
