I am back from attending the UA Physics Centennial. It was wonderful. Everyone was so happy to be back, telling stories of their time at UA and their lives since. Many have remained in physics --research, teaching, industry. Many others are doctors, lawyers, even a wine maker.
The lecture given by Dr. Wolfgang Ketterle was clear and easy to follow. The title of the lecture is "New Forms of Quantum Matter Near Absolute Zero temperature". It was nice to see children and teens there along with the rest of us.
While I was gone, Arkansas had 6 tornados (gallary of photos) come through the state. Several did damage near my home. I am fortunate that I was able to return to a house that was not harmed by the storms, neighbors who checked on things for me, a dog who was glad for me to pick him up from the vets', and sunshine. My husband is currently working out-of-town so wasn't there to greet me. Still it was a nice to be home.
