Memories & Wishes
  1. Thomas J Bogdan, Self employed (friend)
    I was a grad student in the Physics Department from 1979-1983, but had an office in LASR and wrote my thesis under Gene Parker who also held an appointment with A&Aph.

    One of the science highlights of 1996 was the publication of the first 'Stufmuffins of Science' calendar, featuring our own Rocky Kolb as 'Dr. December'. This strikes me as a historical document of great importance, certainly well-worth preserving for future generations of Chicago astrophysicists.

    Am I the only one wondering about AstroChicago456? The sun will still be burning hydrogen surely. Looking forward!
  5. Alexei M Khokhlov, The University of Chicago (current Faculty)
    Best wishes to the department for years and years to come.
  6. Christiane T Martens, University of illinois (friend)
    1. Revolutionize physics by overcoming the monumental barrier of the speed of light, - so to enable actual space travel within a human life time.
    2. Preparation for a close look at potential habitable exoplanets,- with small space crafts
    3. Continued detailed exploration of Europa and Enceladus
    4. Contributions to the landing on Mars and the possible return of the astronaut-explorers
  7. Todd Q Mason, Mason Media, Inc. (friend)
    I fully expect that the University of Chicago's role with the GMT, among other research & projects, will usher in a new era of excitement for understanding the mysteries of the universe, in the spirit of George Ellery Hale.
    "Make no small plans!"
  8. Felecia McCree Moulton, Staff (friend)
    Wishing A&Aph another century of success... happy exo-planet hunting!
