On Sunday, July 9, Dr. Chris Sorensen, physics professor at K-State, spoke about the upcoming Great American Solar Eclipse. The talk was to begin at 2 o’clock, and the chairs were filled by 1:30. People continued to arrive, and the room was abuzz with curiosity and anticipation of the upcoming remarkable event on August 21. The total eclipse has clearly fueled the interest of a multi-generational crowd, and the attendees at Sunday afternoon’s talk were not disappointed.
Professor Sorensen’s presentation was excellent- informative, engaging, humorous. One of the guests requested access to the photos in the powerpoint presentation, and the professor agreed we could post them on our website. Here they are – and thank you, Chris, for your generosity of spirit!
If you missed Professor Sorensen’s presentation at the Volland Foundation, you have another opportunity to hear it. Arrive early.
