Bullitt Lecture in Astronomy

The Dept. of Physics & Astronomy and the Rauch Planetarium host Dr. Virginia Trimble of UC-Irvine to talk about the lasting impact of two key discoveries a century ago on our view of the Universe. One led to a Nobel Prize for Niels Bohr, and the other could have for Henry Moseley, had he not died at age 27 in WW I. This interplay between physics, chemistry and astronomy began a revolution which is still felt today. Dr. Trimble has spent a lifetime in astronomy, researching supernovae, pulsars and cosmology, reviewing thousands of research papers, helping to lead astronomers as VP of the International Astronomical Union. She now writes on the history of astronomy and gives countless public lectures, telling the story of science. http://www.physics.louisville.edu/williger/Bullitt/bullitt_lecture_201310.html
