Detecting Explosives: Schuff Seeks Funds to Finish Invention

Apollo 17 Astronaut, U.S. Senator, and Geologist Dr. Harrison "Jack" Schmitt presents a poster commemorating the Apollo 17 mission to Craig Schuff.

It’s been nearly two years since that fateful evening in May 2011 when Craig Schuff (then 25), a former competitive swimmer, dove into Lake Monona in Wisconsin and severely damaged his spinal cord.

Craig, now a quadriplegic, spent an entire year hospitalized at the University of Wisconsin hospital, but that did not impede his educational pursuits. Last November, Craig passed the oral exam for his master’s degree in nuclear engineering. He now is trying to finish experimental work for his Ph.D. and raise funds to complete an invention that can detect explosives.
