A Student Responds
  • 05 Mar 2005
  • I have come to Saturday Physics all year, and
    these discussions
  • have really interested me in learning more about
    Physics and possibly
  • considering it as a future career. Saturday
    Physics has really shown me how
  • important Physics is to the world and how
    imperative it is that we continue
  • to make headway with new scientific discoveries.
    I especially enjoyed last
  • Saturday's discussion over the expansion of the
    universe. It is hard to
  • believe that discoveries like dark matter are
    still puzzling to even the
  • Smartest scientists. This summer I was hoping to
    find a job, and I would
  • love it if I could work with a Physicist
  • A Student in Houston
