Walla Walla Adventist Forum to Feature Roy Campbell
Physics Professor Will Present the Beauty of God's Creation at a Particle Physics Level
By: Hilary Nieland
Walla Walla Adventist Forum will feature speaker Roy Campbell, professor of physics at Walla Walla University. The presentation entitled Finding Beauty in Deep Down Things: The Search for the Higgs Particle will take place on Sabbath, March 16, 2013 at 4 p.m. in the Chan Shun Pavilion Lecture Hall (Room 154). The event is free and open to the public.
Campbell will use illustrations to demonstrate the beauty in the recently discovered Higgs boson particle, often called the God Particle, to examine God’s creation at a particle physics level.
Campbell joined the WWU physics department in 2001, after a 17-year career at Southwestern Adventist University where he taught physics and astronomy. He specialized in theoretical nuclear and particle physics at Florida State University and has held fellowships from NASA in high energy astrophysics.
The Adventist Forum is an organization which promotes “community through conversation and a renewal of genuine Adventism that impacts the world for Jesus. Prompted by the grace and peace of Jesus, we will embrace a commitment to spiritual purpose, engage in thoughtful conversation, and champion a renewal that encourages effective and faithful service."
