Evening with Francois Englert

May 1, 2014

On April 15, students in Andy Strominger’s Spring Freshman Seminar, Black Holes, String Theory and the Fundamental Laws of Nature, met with recent David M. Lee Historical speaker and Nobel laureate Francois Englert and his wife, pictured here with the students after a relaxed evening of questions and answers.  Munching on ribs and cornbread, Dr. Englert told stories and discussed various aspects of theoretical physics with the class.  Afterwards, one student was heard to remark, "This is great – it basically corroborates everything we’ve studied this semester!"  Everyone was delighted, and the evening ended with smiles all around.
