It’s time for another episode of Steve traveling backward in time! It’s my week in review, another look back at the week that was in my little web log. This week was one of mixed emotions. I’ve begun the last formal topic in my introductory physics course (optics); I received the first draft of my student’s senior thesis this week; I have started final planning for the DIS2015 public lecture on April 26, seeking input from SMU’s excellent communications staff; we did a test with the E-Shield setup to determine minimum safe distances between the 35kV anode and ground; and I learned of the sudden and untimely death of a colleague of mine. It was a mixed week indeed.
