Physics Student Peers into Protons

Gabriel Grauvoge

 

Physics major Gabriel Grauvoge is taking his thirst for knowledge to the subatomic level. With his Luther Rice Undergraduate Research Fellowship, he joined a research effort looking inside the proton, the positively-charged particles in an atom's nucleus that make up much of the visible matter in the universe. As part of an international scientific effort, Grauvogel is contributing to a historically cutting-edge research project. According to Assistant Professor of Physics Axel Schmidt, his faculty mentor, Grauvogel's work will help the physics world advance their understanding of “how protons, neutrons and their constituent particles—the fundamental building blocks that make up everything in our universe—are internally structured.”

"Thomas Buergenthal visited my Holocaust class @CA88tweets today and I’ll never forget it. It was the first time in my life hearing from a Holocaust survivor directly. Research through text is one thing. Hearing directly from the person is another."
