Exploring Blast Exposure and the Brain

Army Rangers may be exposed to thousands of low-level blasts while firing mortars and other concussive weapons systems over their careers. While those aren't the kinds of extreme shocks associated with traumatic brain injury, they may nevertheless be dangerous for the soldiers. A group of five Georgia Tech undergrads went to Fort Benning this summer to better understand the cumulative impacts of these blasts on our nation's war-fighters.

Georgia Tech Research Team Shares Cost-Effective Solutions for Reducing Georgia's Carbon Footprint by 2030

Powered by research from Georgia Tech and other universities, Drawdown Georgia is a statewide effort  to find cost-effective ways to drastically cut the state’s carbon footprint. Georgia already has the necessary tools to reduce its carbon emissions by a third in the next 10 years, all without harming the economy.
