Studying the extraordinar
The addition of assistant professor David Talent to the
faculty was one of the major highlights of the year for the
physics-geology department. Also, Dr. Paul Schulze, chair-
man of the department, received a 10-week NASA
fellowship to study lunar samples.
Dr. Talent came to ACU from Yerkes Observatory in
Williams Bay, Wis. Before spending two years doing post-
doctoral work there, Talent received his Ph.D. from Rice
University in Houston.
The addition of Talent, whose speciality was astronomy,
to the physics department filled a hole in that area, said
"He has added a new dimension we've never had before,"
said Schulze. "He's actually an astronomer, doing research in
astronomy and involving students in that research."
The year also was highlighted by the department chair-
man's invitation to attend a prestigious, intensive study at
the johnson Space Center in Houston.
Schulze was one of only 100 scientists across the nation
who were accepted to spend 10 weeks researching ar
analyzing lunar samples.
The geology division had expanded its educational pr
gram immensely since Dr. Charles Felix, head of the geoloi
program, came to ACU two years ago.
The department acquired a new building to house sever
offices, a seminar room and three lab rooms last fall. Tl
department also acquired some more advanced equipmer
bringing ACU's geology program up to date, said Dr. Felix
The geology division sponsored a geology club and w
working through the Geology National Honor Society 1
obtain a chapter of the honor society at ACU. The pap
work had to be completed before the chapter could be fc
mally installed, however.
During the spring semester the department acquired
fossilized mammoth tusk found at an area gravel pit. Fel
said the tusk, probably from an ice-age mammal that live
8,000 to 10,000 years ago, was about six feet long ar
weighed about 50 pounds. - Kelh Tolfon and Elire Smith
