Chris Luginbuhl
returns to update us on the Dark Skies program he discussed with us on the August 30, 2005 Space Show program.
Christian Luginbuhl is an astronomer at the United States Naval Observatory, Flagstaff Station, where he has worked on a variety of photometric and astrometric projects since beginning work there as a summer student in 1981. His research has involved star-forming regions, young stars and transient phenomena such as gamma-ray bursters and optical transients. He is also a lover of the natural night. For over 25 years he has been actively involved in light-pollution issues, seeking to preserve the highest quality dark skies through education and research. His efforts focus not only on research to improve our understanding of how light pollution is produced and how it may be limited, but also education to raise awareness of our light-obsessed and environmentally isolated culture of the cultural, scientific and human value of the natural night. And not just for astronomers. He is a founding member of the Flagstaff Dark Skies Coalition (flagstaffdarkskies.org), a nonprofit organization that coordinates and enhances the world-leading sky protection efforts of Flagstaff, Arizona, the World’s First International Dark-Sky City. Every two years the Coalition and Chris coordinate the production of “NightVisions,” an international fine art exhibit that celebrates the beauty and wonder of a dark, star filled night, and the inestimable value it brings to human life and culture.

4. Sunday, January 8, 2012, 12-1:30 PM PST (20-21:30 GMT)
Dr. Edmund Storms
comes to the program to discuss the latest regarding LERN, Cold Fusion/CANR.
Edmund Storms obtained a Ph.D. in radiochemistry from Washington University (St. Louis) and is retired from the Los Alamos National Laboratory after thirty-four years of service. His work there involved basic research in the field of high temperature chemistry as applied to materials used in nuclear power and propulsion reactors, including studies of the “cold fusion” effect. Over seventy reviewed publications and monographs resulted from this work as well as several books, all describing an assortment of material properties. After retiring from the LANL in 1991, he moved to Santa Fe, NM were he built a home and laboratory in which he has studied the subject. These studies have resulted in eighteen presentations to various conferences including the ACS and APS.  In addition, twenty-three papers have been published including four complete scientific reviews of the field, one published in 1991, another in 1996 and 1998, and in 2000 (www.LENR.org), with the latest in 2010 (Naturwissenschaften).  In May 1993, he was invited to testify before a congressional committee about the “cold fusion” effect.  In 1998, Wired magazine honored him as one of the 25 people who is making a significant contribution to new ideas. Based on his experimental experience and a complete library of the literature on the subject, he wrote a book about low energy nuclear reaction that was published by World Scientific Publishing in September, 2007. He continues to study the phenomenon in his laboratory in Santa Fe.
