Podcast: Dr. John Borg on the shock physics of engineering

While growing up, Dr. John Borg, professor and chair of mechanical engineering, experimented by launching rockets.

Today he's still researching the effects of explosions and collisions. His specialty lies in shock physics, the research of understanding how material responds under extreme conditions.

The professor of mechanical engineering has studied the implications for subjects as diverse as earthquakes and the knuckleball.

Hear more from Dr. Borg in Illuminating Intellect, a podcast with Dr. Dan Myers, provost of Marquette University.
