What classes are you teach-
ing right now, and which one is
I'm teaching Atmospheric
Thermodynamics and Engineer-

You won the Arizona Gov-
ernor's Innovator of the Year
award in 2007 and 2008 for
helping the scientists who
found water on Mars. What
was it like to play a role in this
It was completely unexpected.
I thought that it was possible, I
knew that because of my under-
standing of thermodynamics. No
one was thinking about that. The
goal of the Phoenix mission was
to go there and sample the ice,
not to look for water.
Your page on the College of
Engineering website includes
the quote, "The truth never
triumphs, their opponents
die." Why did you pick this
Because you make progress
in science. People think that
it's really straightforward, you
come up with a new theory and
everyone's going to accept it, but
people in all sciences have a lot
of baggage - they don't change
their mind very easily. The way
things change in science is by
new people coming into science
with new ideas, the newest idea
being better, and the old ones
changing their minds.
What's your favoritenmovie?
The Star Wars series.
How do you like the current
weather in Michigan?
More than Mars. I like the
change - today was a beautiful
day with some snow and some
sun. I wish the winter were a bit
shorter, I like the seasons.

The winning bidder, Kiyoshi
Kimura, president of Kiyomura
Co., a sushi restaurant chain, said
he wanted to "liven up Japan"
and help it recover from last
year's devastating tsunami and
economic stagnation, according
to media reports.
The tuna was caught off Oma,
in Aomori prefecture and just
north of the coast that was bat-
tered by the March 11 tsunami.
Bluefin tuna is prized for its
tender red meat. The best slices
of fatty bluefin - called "o-toro"
here - can sell for 2,000 yen

Kong-based chain Itamae Sushi,
and an upscale Japanese restau-
rant in Tokyo's Ginza district.
Japanese eat 80 percent of
the Atlantic and Pacific bluefins
caught - the most sought-after
by sushi lovers. Japanese fish-
ermen, however, face growing
calls for tighter fishing rules

Huntsman: Republican race
is wide open in Iowa's wake
MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP)
- Former Utah Gov. Jon Hunts-
man rallied campaign volunteers
yesterday by saying he can smell
success in New Hampshire -
and by showing off his presiden-
tial campaign's first television
The ad features Huntsman
declaring, "We are getting
screwed as Americans." The
spot, which goes on to offer him
as a strong leader, will be airing
in New Hampshire ahead of the
state's Jan. 10 primary. The cam-
paign said the ad buy is at least
Previewing the ad at Hunts-
man's Manchester headquarters,

Huntsman, who skipped the
Iowa caucuses and is count-
ing on a strong showing in New
Hampshire to remain in the race,
spent Wednesday joining sign-
waving supporters in Concord
and speaking to workers at sev-
eral businesses. His audiences
at both were more polite than
enthusiastic, but Huntsman was
buoyant when surrounded by his
"Ladies and gentlemen, I can
smell success," he said, then
added a new twist to his stan-
dard joke about a food item he
considers a New Hampshire
favorite. "I'm not going to say
it smells like a lobster roll, but I
can sense a little NH in it."
Earlier in the day, Huntsman
toured a company that makes
firefighting suits, where he tout-
ed one of his key endorsements
and dismissed front-runner Mitt
Romney's latest catch.
Joining Huntsman at Globe
Manufacturing was former
Homeland Security Secretary
Tom Ridge, who noticed the
Romney signs dotting the roads
and took issue with their slogan
"Believe in America."
"All Republican candidates,
and even President Obama,
believe in America," said Ridge,
a former Pennsylvania gover-
nor. "The question is, who do we
want to lead America? Who's the
principled leader we can trust?"
Though Huntsman was happy
to tout Ridge's endorsement,
he told reporters that "nobody
cares" about Sen. John McCain's
endorsement of Romney. Hunts-
man backed McCain's 2008 pres-
idential bid and campaigned for
him in New Hampshire in 2007.
"I have great regard for Sen.
McCain. I love the man. But it's
another example of the establish-
ment piling on. And it seems the
more the establishment 'piles on
- (Bob) Dole, McCain, all the rest
- nobody cares," Huntsman said.
"None of the endorsements
Romney's picked up have meant
a thing in terms of how people
respond, because people are
looking for a new generation of
leadership," he said.
Huntsman has been hop-
ing to follow in the footsteps of
McCain, who won the 2000 and
2008 New Hampshire primaries
after skipping Iowa's contest. He
calls himself the underdog and
insists that New Hampshire vot-
ers love underdogs.
