Anterior Cruciate Ligaments
By Alexis Jenkins
Alexis Jenkins definitely is very active from the start. Sports have always been her passion; growing up, you could always catch her outside at the softball field playing with her high school, tournament team, or family. This all was until she had an almost career-ending injury occur not just once but twice. Luckily, she could continue to play two years of college softball, but she always wondered why tearing your ACL, also known as your Anterior Cruciate Ligament, was such a big deal. Now years later, she is a Senior here at Millersville studying Sports Journalism. After graduation, she plans to work her way into the ESPN world to eventually become an ESPN Broadcast Journalist.
Joseph Wright is currently a senior at Millersville University, dual majoring in physics and applied engineering technology management with concentrations in nanotechnology and nanofabrication manufacturing technologies. Originally a part of his thesis on mechanical alloying and milling, he pursued this research when varying milling process parameters. Metal powders used in metallurgy must be produced in great masses to satisfy the needs of industry. Conventional ball milling utilizes a random movement procedure that yields such powders but in low quantities. Planetary ball milling is examined as an alternative to conventional ball milling, and milling times, mass yield, and motion of the system are examined.
