A Nobel Prize Winner Visits

Dr. Joseph H. Taylor won the 1993 Nobel Prize in Physics with co-recipient Russell Hulse for using the observed orbital decay of binary pulsar PSR 1913 +16 to test Einstein's General Theory of Relativity with unprecedented sensitivity.  While at Princeton, Dr. Jeremy Brown worked for Dr. Taylor as an Assistant Dean.  Dr. Taylor attended President Brown's inauguration ceremonies on November 29 and 30, 2007.  Click here for more information on Dr. Taylor's life and work.
