FAS President Speaks at University of Illinois

On March 6, FAS President Dr. Charles Ferguson gave a presentation on “The Physics (and Politics) of Nuclear Disarmament” at the physics colloquium of the University of Illinois. This event was, in part, to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the course Physics 280: Nuclear Weapons, Nuclear War, and Arms Control taught for 30 years by Prof. Frederick Lamb and now taught by Prof. Matthias Grosse Perdekamp. This is believed to be the longest continuously taught course on these issues; more than 1,000 students have taken this course.
