The legendary radio telescope at Arecibo Observatory in Puerto Rico collapsed on Dec. 1, sending shock waves throughout the astronomy and astrophysics communities. The telescope, the world’s most powerful radar that was used by scientists for almost six decades to send beams to and receive signals from outer space to elucidate the ways of the universe, also is cemented in the history of the U.S. Department of Energy’s Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL).
A memorial service for James Wilson Clark, the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory’s first deputy director for administrative operations and an active member of the Princeton community and an executive at the federal Office of Management and Budget, will be held Saturday, Dec. 21, at 1 p.m. at Nassau Presbyterian Church, 61 Nassau Street,.
Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory is a U.S. Department of Energy national laboratory managed by Princeton University.
