Clare Hall Reunion in Chicago

Tomorrow, my colleague Andy Klein and I are heading to Chicago to meet and greet current Clare Hall (University of Cambridge) President Sir Martin Harris at a reunion of the college's Life Members.

Dr. Robert Rosner, Professor of Astrophysics at the University of Chicago and Director of the Argonne National Laboratory, will make a presentation on "Blowing up stars in one's office," examining how modern astrophysics deals with one of the classic unsolved problems of astronomy: why and how do certain stars become supernovae? 

Kudos to Professor Klein for organizing the event.
