Donor support for COVID-19 research has had far-reaching benefits
“We did not have the time to write external grants and could not rely on traditional and slow funding vehicles. Instead we are supported by philanthropic funds that enable us to use necessary supercomputer resources, which would otherwise not be accessible.” notes Swanlund Professor of Physics Nigel Goldenfeld.
ENGINEERING VISIONARY SCHOLARSHIPS
Give to the Engineering Visionary Scholarship.
EVS attracts the brightest students, ensures a diverse and talented class, and helps reduce student debt.
“The relief of financial burden this scholarship has lifted from my family’s shoulders is truly a priceless gift, and the generosity of donors that have made this possible inspires me to want to give others this same gift of relief, security, and most of all educational opportunity, as it has done for me.”
— Sara Shahid, Engineering Physics Class of '22, EVS Scholarship recipient
Illinois Physics Professor Gordon Baym received the 2021 APS Medal for Exceptional Achievement in Research. Here is a video with interviews of the exceptional scientists who were honored with Medals and Society Prizes this year. Watch Professor Baym's segment starting at 0:11:22.
This original creation explores physics through the performing arts. It is one part of a larger scope of physics-and-the-arts collaborations initiated by Illinois Physics Professor Smitha Vishveshwara.
Surely the coat makes you feel warmer by preventing heat loss by (mostly) convection? Your body core temperature is not warmer than it was before you put the coat on, you just feel warmer. I cannot find any reference to cooler radiation actually being absorbed by a warmer surface *for net energy gain* as that would appear to invalidate the @nd Law of Thermodynamics. Do you have such a reference? Thanks for replying.
