Clare Hall Reunion, Chicago 2010

Yesterday's Clare Hall, Cambridge reunion at the University of Chicago Business School was a great success. Life members and former graduate students came from throughout the Midwest to meet Clare Hall's new president, Sir Martin Harris, who gave a very nice talk about current happenings in the college. The highlight of the evening was a fascinating presentation by Life Member Robert Rosner, Professor of Astrophysics at the University of Chicago and Director of the Argonne National Laboratory, about how interdisciplinary teams of scientists, combining the incomplete facts of astronomy, basic physics, and computer simulations, managed to figure out for the first time how Super Novae move from ignition to explosion.

Here is a picture featuring (from left to right), your's truly, Sir Martin Harris, Bob Rosner, and Andy Klein, who deserves great credit for organizing the event.
