Physicist, businessman and inventor, Thomas E. Tauber has a mission: to make physics understandable. He explains the structure of matter in “From Quantum, to the Quark, and to the Higgs Boson” at Main Line MUFON Tuesday, March 19. The 6:30 pm meeting at Tredyffrin Public Library, is free to the public. For more information, visit www.MainLineMUFON.comor Email: MainLineMUFON@comcast.net.
Why does it matter that we understand physics?
Dr. Tauber replies, “Matter is in every blade of grass, each piece of meat, every chair, car, in air, water, beer or wine---including us. My mission is to de-mystify the quark, quantum physics and even the Higgs Boson” he smiles.
Holding degrees in engineering and physics and a Ph.D. in theoretical physics from Lehigh University, Dr. Tauber came to America on a Fulbright Scholarship from his native Vienna, Austria.
While managing research and development for a privately held aerospace company in the Philadelphia area, he earned eight U.S. patents for inventions that enhance the safety and reliability of jet engines and helicopter propulsion systems. Most large commercial aircraft carry his systems or devices.
Since retiring as president of that firm, Dr. Tauber has re-kindled his passion for physics, developing a presentation on the who and what of physics. Stressing that the structure of matter is understandable, (although not simple), he chronicles the recent discoveries that have revolutionized our understanding of nature.
“I’m aware that most of us haven’t had physics since high school, so I’ll convey the marvel of the physicists’work in plain English. And of course, questions are always welcome.”
Main Line MUFON meets each month (mainly Tuesday evenings) at 6:30 pm at Tredyffrin Public Library, 582 Upper Gulph Road, Strafford, PA 19087. The meeting is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Jennifer W. Stein: MainLineMUFON@comcast.net or call 610-613-0088.
Mission: To bring together residents of southeastern PA interested in the exploration of the unexplained UFO phenomena with monthly programs at the Tredyffrin Public Library in Radnor. Films and lecture presentations with nationally recognized presenters are featured, followed by Q & A with stimulating discussions to explore phenomena in a non fear-based environment.
