Photos from the recent Symposium on Current Trends in Nuclear Physics at LBNL

This past Saturday was the 80th birthday bash for Wladek Swiatecki. When you become older birthday bashes involve several hours of seminars from people whose research you contributed to. At the recent birthday bash I was able to get some nice photos with Darleane Hoffman and Al Ghiorso one is shown below. If you do not know them they are most famous for their work in the 5f and 6d row of the periodic table. Al is the world record holder for the discoverer of the most elements and I think isotopes too. Picture is below.

You can also make out half of Peter Armbruster’s face in the background (Santa Claus guy). If you don’t know who Peter Armbruster is, who are you? And why are you reading this? Tongue

And for everyone in the audience, please use power point for talks. I promise its not that difficult to learn.
