That’s Mr. Cosmic To You! October 14, 2006

Posted by gordonwatts in physics life, travel.

Symmetry Magazine recently came out with an article on science travel, in which I was quoted. But, by far, my favorite is from another UW professor, Jeff Wilkes:

“I study cosmic rays, and I used to have a University of Washington credit card that said ‘Cosmic Ray’ on it. So, when I would go up to the rent-a-car counter they would say things like, ‘What kind of car would you like Mr. Cosmic?’ ”
– Jeffrey Wilkes, University of Washington in Seattle

I think I know how I’ll be addressing Jeff in the next faculty meeting!
