Dear Physics Alumni

On behalf of the Physics Department, I wish to cordially invite each of you to attend a special reunion on the Stanford campus on Friday, October 17, 2003. On Friday afternoon at 3:15 PM, I will be giving a special lecture entitled The Breakup of the Space Shuttle Columbia: A Physicist's Perspective on the Disaster and Lessons We Must Learn. I have spent several months serving on the Columbia accident investigation panel, and my lecture will discuss that experience and explain some of our findings. You are welcome to attend this free lecture, and/or other lectures being given by my physics colleagues, Prof. Patricia Burchat (Matter and Antimatter: Not Quite a Mirror Image) and Roger Romani (The Cosmic Recipe). Additional details about those and other lectures are available on the reunion website: http://www.stanfordalumni.org/erc/reunions/rh03cwoqs.html. You may also want to check our physics department website for more information pertaining specifically to our department: http://www.stanford.edu/dept/physics/index.shtml

In addition, the Physics Department will host a reception Friday evening, 5:30-7:00 PM in the Varian Physics lobby. The reception is open to all interested Physics alumni, and will offer a chance to have some refreshments, meet with former classmates and talk with some of our physics faculty. You may also find some of your student-era professors at this reception. We hope that you will join us for what promises to be a very enjoyable social occasion. If you have additional questions, please contact my assistant, Jenifer Conan-Tice, at (650) 723-4347. We hope to see you on October 17!
