John C. Lindsay Memorial Award for Space Science

2016
Recipient: Richard L Kelley (660)
Rich led the development of the Hitomi Soft X-ray Spectrometer (SXS), a technological marvel consisting of an X-ray calorimeter at the focus of a foil mirror. The SXS produced the first direct measurements of gas turbulence and bulk motions in the Perseus Cluster. The entire SXS team had contributions that far exceeded the sum of their individual efforts, producing transformational scientific results from exceptional technical achievements. The fall colloquium series will include the Lindsay Award Winner lecture, where you may hear more from Rich about this fascinating work. Congratulations to the SXS Team and hearty congratulations to Rich!
