NSF Director, Dr. Arden Bement – CapSci2010 Keynote Address
For the fourth time, Dr. Bement spoke to the CapSci audience. His topic was Lasers — in commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the first laser light. From that first beam, the importance of laser light has grown to touch every aspect of our lives, from computer games to essential medical technology.
This was a bittersweet time at CapSci since Dr. Bement is leaving NSF to take up the reins of the Purdue’s new Global Policy Research Institute. We hate to see him go.
