(Oct. 12, 2010)--Volunteers are needed to help run a water station with fellow UTSA students and staff -- and to cheer on the numerous UTSA runners that will compete in this year's San Antonio Rock 'N Roll Marathon and Half Marathon on Sunday, Nov. 14.

"We need at least 100 volunteers to help on race day, so encourage your fellow students, faculty and staff to join in as well," said Jessica Figueroa, service chair of the UTSA Honors Alliance student organization. The Honors Alliance is organizing the official UTSA water station for the second year.

UTSA's station is toward the end of the race -- mile 25 for those doing the marathon, mile 12 for the half-marathon. Parking will be provided for volunteers as well as bonus giveaways.

For details and to register as a volunteer, visit the San Antonio Rock 'N Roll Marathon and Half Marathon website. For more information on the UTSA station, call 210-458-7273.

Did You Know?

Sometimes you have to see the little picture

UTSA researchers are exploring matter at the atomic level with Helenita. It's one of the most powerful microscopes in the world, with the ability to operate near the theoretical limit of resolution. At 9 feet, 2 inches tall and weighing more than two tons, Helenita can dissect almost anything. With Helenita's resolution, researchers can study particles atom by atom to see how they behave.

That's critical in developing nanotechnology that will help diagnosis early-stage breast cancer or make helmets that are uber strong. Moreover, the detail that Helenita provides will allow nanotechnology researchers to create new therapies and treatments to fight a wide range of human diseases.

Did you know? Helenita can magnify a sample 20 million times its size, which would make a strand of human hair the size of San Antonio.
