We welcome Adjunct Professor Ron Giere back to Bloomington!
After a slow start - as in all good parties - the second HPSC reunion turned out to be a fun event, which went on well past midnight and attracted many current members, alumni, and friends of the department. The photo (courtesy of Marsha Richmond) shows Nico Bertoloni Meli with Jim Ruffner, from the entering class of 1960 (our first year!) Jim took classes with Norwood Russell Hanson, Ed Grant, and Roger Buck. Among his fellow students were David Lindberg and David Hull. Jim has written seminal works on the theory of comets, especially on Newton. His latest contribution was published last year and can be found here.
To coincide with the opening of the Integrated HPS3 conference in Bloomington on 23 September 2010, the Department hosted a special alumni panel celebrating its 50th anniversary.
