Congratulations to Alice Harding
Dr Alice Harding has been awarded the
American Astronomical Society High Energy Astrophysics Division Rossi Prize.
The award is made jointly to Alice and Dr Roger Romani from Stanford
University. The citation reads "To Alice K Harding and Roger W. Romani for
establishing a theoretical framework for understanding gamma-ray pulsars."
Congratulations to new APS Fellow
Please congratulate Dr. Demos Kazanas for his election to Fellow of the American Physical Society (APS). The
citation reads "For diverse contributions to Astrophysics, ranging from a
1980 independent resolution, of the cosmological horizon problem using the
vacuum energy of spontaneously broken gauge theory -- to the recent idea
that AGN appearance depends on the properties of MHD winds launched from
their accretion disks."
Welcome Padi Boyd to the Division Office!
While Joan Centrella is on a 1 year detail to NASA HQ, Padi will be Acting Deputy Division Director.
Congratulations to Alice Harding for winning the Lindsay Award this year!

Plans for the second annual science jamboree on June 2nd are progressing well. Please keep this day open on your calendars and avoid scheduling other meetings the same day! This will be a great opportunity to mix and mingle with your colleagues and see all the exciting science we lead at the center.
Last fall, September 12, 2008, Dr. Elihu Boldt passed away. Dr. Boldt was the first head of the X-ray Astrophysics Branch in the Laboratory of High Energy Astrophysics. Some who worked with him are honoring his memory with talks on subjects that he worked on or to which their work has evolved in a half day symposium on the morning of Nov. 6.
