University faculty members elected to the Academy this year include Professors Rubén Gallo, M. Zahid Hasan, Amaney Jamal, Ruby Lee, Margaret Martonosi, Tom Muir, Alondra Nelson, Eve Ostriker, Alexander Smits, James Stone, Leeat Yariv, and Muhammad Qasim Zaman.
“This is a crisis like no other, which means there is substantial uncertainty about the impact that it will have on peoples’ lives and livelihoods,” Gopinath said.
Anderson was the Joseph Henry Professor of Physics, Emeritus, at the University, where he has been a faculty member since 1975. He died on March 29, 2020, in Princeton Windrows, N.J.
The prototype, named Mechanical Ventilator Milano (MVM), is going through a series of tests in Italy to assess its capabilities. The designs will be available to anyone who wants to manufacture it.
“We are months away from being able to do the South Korean system. Our public is not prepared for that. We don’t have the testing facilities. We don’t have tests.”
Violating the order could result in fines or imprisonment.
Despite his mathematical contributions to the theories of quantum electrodynamics, Dyson did not receive the 1965 Nobel Prize in Physics alongside Feynman, Schwinger, and Tomonaga. The theoretical physicist Steven Weinberg GS ’57, who shared the 1979 Nobel Prize in Physics, told the New York Times in 2009 that the Nobel Prize Committee “fleeced” Dyson by not awarding him a prize for his work on quantum electrodynamics.
For his first experiment, Piroué was effectively on his own. For his last, he worked with the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment at the CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC), and collaborated with more than 3,000 scientists.
Nobel laureate Kip S. Thorne GS ’65 discusses black holes, receives James Madison Medal at Alumni Day
The James Madison Medal is awarded annually to an alumnus or alumna of the University Graduate School “who has had a distinguished career, advanced the cause of graduate education or achieved a record of outstanding public service.”
Launched atop a Delta IV Heavy rocket from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida on Aug. 12, 2018, the NASA Parker Solar Probe mission, nicknamed “Parker,” was a $1.5 billion project. The mission seeks to “touch the Sun,” discovering the secrets of the star’s corona by performing unprecedented observations and measurements of solar winds, magnetic fields, and energetic particles that originate from the star’s mysterious outer atmosphere.
