Rhodes College Dedicates Glen Davis Machine Shop

Thanks to the vision and generosity of Dr. Charles Robertson Jr. ’65, the shop was renovated and named in honor of Glen Davis, technical associate in the Department of Physics. Davis has managed the shop for 20 years, teaching students and others on campus machining, fabricating, and welding, as well as making and repairing items for college instruction, research, and maintenance.

The History of the Universe. Nobel Laureate John Mather

The Peyton Nalle Rhodes Physics Lecture Series 

Nobel Laureate Dr. John C. Mather will outline the history of the universe from its early moments in the Big Bang to its possible end. He will illustrate with examples from NASA, including discoveries made with the Hubble telescope, and discuss plans for the new James Webb Space Telescope, planned for a 2019 launch. Within a few decades, we may know that life is common in the universe—or perhaps not.

There will be a reception and book signing following the lecture.
