On Sunday Nov 14, the Union Tribune ran a special section outlining some of the history and highlights of UC San Diego's first 50 years.
Check out the coverage online: http://www.signonsandiego.com/ucsd-50/
Below is a screen shot of one of the pages. It includes future looking quotes from UC San Diego Bioengineering professor Gert Cauwenberghs and NanoEngineering professor Joseph Wang.
The special section includes information on how structural engineers from the UC San Diego Jacobs School of Engineering played an important role in retrofitting bridges to prepare them for earthquakes.
(That same page also has a great image of Jacobs School undergrads floating in near-zero gravity in order to made better space toilets.)
