Lenox Laser has an amazing legacy that we hope will continue to grow for many years to come. Adding to that legacy is the fact that on October 4, 2011, Lenox Laser hosted its second annual light seminar celebrating Lenox Laser’s 30th anniversary.
The seminar would feature some amazing presentations with a renowned and respected keynote speaker, Dr. John C Mather. Dr. Mather discussed the famed James Webb Space Telescope and the Big Bang theory. Dr. Mather served as the Senior Project Scientist on the James Webb Space Telescope. He was the recipient of the 2006 Nobel Prize in physics for the discovery of the blackbody form and anisotropy of the cosmic microwave background radiation. Dr. Mather’s speech was called “History of The Universe in a Nutshell from the Big Bang to Life to the End of Time.” An excerpt from the speech states: “To begin at the beginning-the universe is been expanding for a very long time. We now think that is been doing this for 13.7 billion years.” At the speech’s conclusion, Lenox Laser President Joe d’Entremont presented Dr. Mather with an art piece by Gregory Solyar called “Flying Space.”
Other guest speakers included Professor Reza Sarhangi who is a professor of mathematics at Towson University and President of Bridges. The professor gave a speech on mathematics called “Mathematical Connections in Art, Music, and Science The Art and Mathematics of Star Polygons.”
The final guest speaker the night was Dr. Alexander Dudelzak, the Senior Science and Technology Advisor at The Canadian Space Agency and the Director of R&D at GasTOPS LTD. Ottawa. Dr. Dudelzak gave a talk entitled “Novel Concepts and Applications of LIDAR From the Bottom of the Ocean to Mars.”
Lenox laser had another great success on its hands with the second seminar. Look forward to reading more about other seminars in the coming weeks.
