Professor McKay visited Peter Knappett recently at Texas A&M where Peter is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Geology and Geophysics. Dr. McKay gave a seminar on his research on the hydrogeology of fractured clay and shale, as well as a lunch time talk on his career mentoring courses for grads and undergrads. Highlights of the trip included a pizza party with Peter’s wife, Kelly, and his graduate students, as well as a visit to the George H.W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum. They also had a tour of the National Center for Electron Beam Research, which uses electrons to sterilize food and surgical equipment, and has a lab that prepares and sterilizes most of the food consumed by American Astronauts on the International Space Station.
