Spotlight on “Hidden Physicists”
Sigma Pi Sigma Initiates List 2006−2007
This year marks the 50th anniversary of the
Sputnik, and next year marks the 10th anniversary of
the discovery of the accelerating universe. Our
awareness of the universe reminds us that we are in
it as participants; we are not detached spectators of
it. Robert Pirsig wrote, “On a cycle the frame is
gone. You’re in the scene, not just watching it anymore,
and the sense of presence is overwhelming.”
Our cover story (p. 5) muses on the art of physics
appreciation, from the formative role of the profound
science questions asked by second-graders, to
the sense of presence one experiences when standing
next to a radio telescope collecting faint signals
from across the universe.
