Saturday Morning Physics (April 2005)

During the fall and winter, the University of Michigan Physics Department hosts a series of multimedia presentations called Saturday Morning Physics. These presentations are aimed at the general public. Generally you can find several Lowbrows in attendance. (The Lowbrows are an amateur astronomy club based in Ann Arbor). The following photographs were taken on Saturday, April 23, 2005, during Saturday Morning Physics.

Lowbrows sometimes play practical jokes. Five Lowbrows demonstrate one joke that never got used. These 9 sheets of paper (which spell out the words “Take Cover”) were later presented to Warren as a gift.
