About the Cover

2001 Summer Bulletin Cover Tom Thompson, professor of mathematics and adjunct professor of physics, guided by Claude Barnett, professor of physics, peers through the eyepiece of the new telescope in the Kretschmar Hall Observatory. The 16-inch, computer-controlled Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope and its 700- square-foot rooftop home have been funded through gifts from alumni and friends of WWC. It will be possible to control the telescope remotely and to record digital images of the night sky with a new CCD camera. Professor Thompson and his colleagues are continuing to raise funds for the facility, including a proposed 900-square-foot adjacent outdoor laboratory. This new observation deck will enable students and instructors to set up and use several telescopes simultaneously. The construction is timely, given the renewed interest in astronomy fueled by a remarkable new generation of powerful telescopes.

--Terrie Aamodt, Professor of English and History
