Title: CALIFORNIA CONDOR
Movie ID: VT3879
Movie Number: 3879
Description: When this Audubon special program was filmed, there were only six California condors living in the wild--now there are none. In captivity, however, over twenty survive. Audubon finds this magnificent creature in its natural habitat--flying high over the Santa Ynez Mountains of southern California. With a ten-foot wingspan, the condor can reach altitudes of 15,000 feet and speeds of up to 80 miles per hour. It is rightfully named nature's finest flying machine. Breathtaking footage of the great birds, never before captured on film, will give you an appreciation of their magnificence and a sadness of their demise. The graceful coutrship flight and a rare scene with all six condors airborne together are two of this film's most fascinating moments. It in no wonder that scientists and conservationists are struggling to someday re-introduce California condors to the skies they once ruled.

"Lake Superior State is the only robotics program of its kind in the country. I can work up any research or senior project idea with a professor or my advisor. I studied for a year in Japan through LSSU's connection with the Japan Center for Michigan Universities, and became fluent in Japanese. A Japanese company called Fanuc makes most of the robots in our lab. I'd like to roll my senior research project into a career with Fanuc that bridges the two countries and cultures."
