1 GAASP: Gravity/Astronomy & Astrophysics/Space Physics Landolt Standards: 2825 citations Farnese Atlas B. Schaefer NY Times & NPR

2 Commentary (slide #1) GAASP includes a large fraction of P&A faculty The group has a broad range of research interests and successes, most of which will not be mentioned due to time constraints; examples of breadth are: –Professor Landolt’s meticulous work on “standard stars” that is used for critical calibration of astronomical observations by the worldwide (professional & amateur) community; over 2800 citations, to date! –Hearne Professor Pullin’s work on “quantum-loop gravity” that aims to unify/expand our mathematical and physical understanding of the (traditionally disconnected) fields of quantum fields and gravity. –Professor B. Schaefer’s careful analysis of the star catalog that has been preserved on the marble statue known as the Farnese Atlas; 2005 media coverage included NY Times and NPR.
