Nobel Connection

Saturday, October 1, 2011

Those of you who regularly watch the PBS Newshour may have seen the feature on Saul Perlmutter, one of three co-winners of the 2011 Nobel Prize in Physics for their work on the accelerating Universe and dark energy. What you may not know is that the grad student shown working at the telescope controls taking data with Perlmutter for the SNIa observations is none other than KU alum Hannah Swift (now Fakhouri) (BS Astronomy, Math, Physics 2006). Hannah is a grad student completing her PhD in Perlmutter’s group at Berkeley.
