Dr. Alex Filippenko is addicted to watching total solar eclipses across the globe and is an active researcher of supernovae, active galaxies, black holes, neutron stars, gamma-ray bursts, and cosmology. He talks to local high school students this month about astrophysics and the joy of watching total solar eclipses in person. Don't forget: this year's solar eclipse is on August 21st!

Theoretical physicist Paul Ginsparg is a professor at Cornell University and a fellow of the MacArthur Foundation, who created arXiv, a computer-based system for physicists and other scientists to communicate their research results.

Markus Luty is a physicist at University of California/Davis with a focus on theoretical particle physics and cosmology.  His current research is driven by the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva, Switzerland.
