  • Dr. Daniel McCleese, NASA/JPL, The Search for Habitable Environments in the Solar System
    other worlds in the solar system habitable by simple organisms By framing its search objective in this way NASA motivates investigations of the fundamentals of what makes a planet an abode for life and what ingredients are required for the origin and evolution of life In this lecture we focus on the strategies and results of the search thus far We will discuss recent scientific missions to Mars Europa and Titan Dr Dan McCleese is the Chief Scientist for NASA s Mars Exploration Program at JPL In this role he has worked with NASA and the international science community to establish the current science strategy for exploring Mars Dan s personal science interests are focused on acquiring and interpreting climatological data sets for the terrestrial planets Specific research topics include development of the first climatology of cloud height for Earth upper atmospheric cloud and thermal structure of Venus and at present the modern climate of Mars He is the Principal Investigator for the Mars Climate Sounder on the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter to be launched in 2005 In this investigation measurements of atmospheric water vapor temperature and condensates and the energy balance of the polar caps are emphasized Dr McCleese was

  • Dr. Lawrence Badash, UCSB, Albert Einstein the Peacenik
    Joseph McCarthy era restraints on freedom of speech and disapproval of racism Scientific expertise was of no value in most of these cases yet Einstein s words were taken seriously and reached a large audience For his efforts he was threatened with assassination several times was in danger of deportation from the United States and accumulated a huge FBI file He even was denied security clearance to work on the WWII atomic bomb project Einstein s courage in his public activities ran on a track parallel to the boldness of his scientific work Lawrence Badash received a BS in physics from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in 1956 and a PhD in history of science from Yale University in 1964 He is Professor Emeritus of History of Science at the University of California Santa Barbara where he taught for thirty six years He has been a NATO Postdoctoral Science Fellow at Cambridge University a Guggenheim Fellow Visiting Professor of International Studies at Meiji Gakuin University in Yokohama Director of the University of California Institute on Global Conflict and Cooperation s Summer Seminar on Global Security and Arms Control a lecturer on the nuclear arms race at the Inter University Center of Postgraduate Studies in Dubrovnik Croatia a Council member of the History of Science Society a Member at Large of the Section on History and Philosophy of Science of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and a member of the Executive Committee of the Forum on Physics and Society of the American Physical Society Badash is a Fellow of the American Physical Society and of the American Association for the Advancement of Science His research is centered on the physical sciences of the past century especially the development of radioactivity and nuclear physics on the role of scientists in the
