From the Program Chair

By Ira Polans

The February meeting will be held on the 13th at 7:30PM in Peyton Hall on the Princeton University campus.

The talk is by Paul Halpern on his book “The Quantum Labyrinth: How Richard Feynman and John Wheeler Revolutionized Time and Reality”.

From black holes and wormholes to gravitational waves and the participatory universe, this talk will show how the work of American physicists Richard Feynman and John Wheeler, who first worked together at Princeton in the early 1940s and had strikingly distinct personalities, had a major impact on contemporary science.

During the break there will be a book signing.

Prior to the meeting there will be a meet-the-speaker dinner at 6PM at Winberie’s in Palmer Square in Princeton. If you’re interested in attending please contact program@princetonastronomy.org no later than Noon on February 13.

We are still looking for volunteers to give a 10 minute talk on an astronomy related topic at a future meeting. If you’re interested in giving one in February or at a later meeting please contact me at program@princetonastronomy.org.

If you have suggestions for speakers please send them to the same email address. Please provide the speaker’s name, topic, and affiliation. Thanks!

We look forward to seeing you at the February meeting and the dinner!
