Jacob Walley, a Gardner-Webb senior chemistry major from Stanley, N.C., had a unique opportunity recently to conduct research on the largest marine oil spill in history. Deepwater Horizon, an oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico, exploded on April 20, 2010, and scientists are still investigating the effects of the spill and cleanup efforts. Deepwater Horizon, a film about the explosion, opened in theaters on Sept. 30.
