TO ALL AOL USERS

You might want to consider obtaining an alternate email address other than AOL that we can send notifications to.  After a chat session with a Hostgator support person and they said that they are working on it, but it is a constant battle against a showdown after a certain number of emails are sent.

This cannot be good for a number of larger Hostgator clients.  Is AOL being rude, or does Hostgator allow too many spammers?

If you would like an New SBAU Email address let Paul Winn Know and he can create a Email for you like Yourinfo@sbau.org. I can then send you the setup info for different email clients, or you can login via hostgators webmail service. Very Easy to use.

Email Address ending with @sbau.org are for SBAU members only

July 10th  7:30pm Speaker  DAVID J. GROSS

David Gross is the Chancellor’s Chair Professor of Theoretical Physics and former Director of the Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics at UCSB. He received his Ph.D. in 1966 at UC Berkeley and was previously Thomas Jones Professor of Mathematical Physics at Princeton University. He has been a central figure in particle physics and string theory. His discovery, with his student Frank Wilczek, of asymptotic freedom—the primary feature of non-Abelian gauge theories—led Gross and Wilczek to the formulation of Quantum Chromodynamics, the theory of the strong nuclear force. This completed the Standard Model, which details the three basic forces of particle physics--the electromagnetic force, the weak force, and the strong force.

Gross was awarded the 2004 Nobel Prize in Physics, with Politzer and Wilczek, for this discovery. He has also made seminal contributions to the theory of Superstrings, a burgeoning enterprise that brings gravity into the quantum framework.  His awards include the Sakurai Prize, MacArthur Prize, Dirac Medal, Oscar Klein Medal, Harvey Prize, the EPS Particle Physics Prize, the Grande Medaille d’Or and the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2004. He holds honorary degrees from the US, Britain, France, Israel, Brazil, Belgium and China. His membership includes the US National Academy of Science, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the American Philosophical Society, the Indian Academy of Science and the Chinese Academy of Science.


SBAU Telescope Workshop Every Tuesday 7:30pm to 9:00pm
Tuesday Dec 23rd there will be no meeting. See you on 12/30

"Want to learn how to make your own telescope or learn more about astrophotography?  Well, the SBAU has a Telescope Workshop!  At the Telescope Workshop, we cover construction techniques for mirrors and telescopes, but also optics, cameras, and image processing software discussions.  We encourage novice astronomers to come, ask questions, and even build, while  advanced members are re-invited to attend if they want to discuss telescope issues not covered at the monthly meetings or just to help out. Check out http://sbautw.blogspot.com for a sample of past weekly Tuesday night sessions at the Broder Building at the Museum of Natural History."
