What's the universe made of? Will we ever cure disease? Where do we find more energy? What is an isotope exactly? How will we feed the world? Will we evolve enough to survive a changing planet? What discoveries are still out there? Where do all the single socks go? There are endless questions that I certainly don't know that answers to. Most of them are rooted in science and all of them boggle my mind. If I think about them too hard, they're likely to keep me up at night. I like to think I'm a pretty intelligent person, but the fact is, there are a ton of things I don't know and I have no background or skills to figure them out. (If anyone knows the answer to the sock thing, please let me know.) Luckily, the world is not relying on me to solve our most challenging problems. We can, however, rely on truly incredible Spartans who refuse to give up asking the big questions and seeking the answers. All over campus and around the globe, researchers are working tirelessly to find solutions that will make all of our tomorrows better. The questions are insanely difficult but Spartans simply don't give up when things are tough - it just motivates them to dig deep and work a little harder.
