    Creative Campus Voting Project

    Two installations at the Duderstadt Gallery and the U-M Museum of Art intend to make the voting process clear, welcoming and delightful for students on both Central and North Campus this fall. Stephanie Rowden and Hannah Smotrich, associate professors of art and design in the Penny W. Stamps School of Art & Design, are co-leads of the nonpartisan Creative Campus Voting Project. Their installations each feature a satellite location of the Ann Arbor City Clerk’s Office, where residents, including U-M students who live in Ann Arbor, will be able to register to vote, obtain absentee ballots, complete ballots on site if they wish, and return their absentee ballots to an official City of Ann Arbor dropbox.

    Asteroid-spawned tsunami

    The miles-wide asteroid that struck Earth 66 million years ago wiped out nearly all the dinosaurs and roughly three-quarters of the planet’s plant and animal species. It also triggered a monstrous tsunami with mile-high waves that scoured the ocean floor thousands of miles from the impact site on Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, according to a new U-M study. In this video, U-M researchers discuss how they found evidence that supports their models’ predictions about the tsunami’s path and power.
