Mike Klosterman and Peter
September 2018

Mike (M.S., Geology, 1972) is the retired Chief Geologist of the US Army Corps of Engineers []. Mike's thesis, published in JGR, was on Structural analysis of olivine in pallasitic meteorites: Deformation in planetary interiors. His subsequent work as a geological engineer shows the interesting but unpredictable ways that careers can develop.

Mihály Pósfai wins Széchenyi Prize
March, 2016

In March 2016 Mihály Pósfai won a Széchenyi Prize, which is awarded to “the greatest Hungarian minds alive today.” It is “the most prestigious state award in the sciences” and was given in a ceremony in the Parliament Building led by the President and the Prime Minister of Hungary. This picture shows the ceremony hall.

Tapolca, Hungary

This picture was taken in 2000 in the town of Tapolca, where we went to collect magnetic bacteria. It shows Peter, two friends of Mihály, Mihály, Rafal, Bertrand Devouard, and Richard Frankel. It was cold and rainy, but Mihály is in shorts because he had to go into the water to get the bacteria.

Jerome Instrument Corp.
John McNerney is in the classy sun glasses, with wife Iris on his right. He is surrounded by the JIC staff in front of the company offices in the old Jerome High School. For details, see John's 7*M Newsletter entry. Although hard to read, the sign has the JIC emblem and name Jerome Instrument Corp. The sign was made by another local woodworker and a friend of John's still has it.
