COLLOQUIUM: Spacetraveler's Manifesto: The Other-Worldly Career of Freeman Dyson

Dr. Phil Schewe
University of Maryland

Freeman Dyson is not one man but ten. He has worked in many areas of physics research, with notable achievements in quantum, atomic, statistical, mathematical, and nuclear physics. As a member of the Jason consulting organization, he helped to invent what is now called adaptive optics. Dyson is a frequent writer on a wide variety of social topics, including the relation of science to religion, the prospective colonization of the solar system, and climate change.
