Physics and Astronomy
Physics is the most fundamental of all the scientific disciplines. Ranging from the applied to the abstract, from the infinitesimal to the infinite, and from quarks to the cosmos, the study of physics seeks to explain all the complicated phenomena in the natural world by providing a description of these phenomena in terms of a few basic principles and laws.
Current Schedule. Our lecture series has brought outstanding scientists and engineers to the campus each week since 1971, including fourteen Nobel laureates. These speakers present lectures ranging from the hottest discoveries in physics and astronomy to inside views of physicists' daily lives at a level undergraduate students can understand.
Dr. Cominsky receives three awards: The Wang Family Excellence Award, The AAS Education Prize and Sally Ride Excellence in Education Award.
Michael Dobbs has been selected to work at CERN on ATLAS research projects this summer.
