The Windy City came to the Crown City today. Rahm Emanuel, @chicagosmayor, visited campus to chat with President Rosenbaum about #ThinkChicago, an initiative to connect the city’s business and tech leaders with universities across the country.

"On one of my recent projects, I spent an hour or two at Copa Vida in Old Town Pasadena trying to work out how I thought a very specific part of the galaxy might regulate itself. I took my work back to campus when free parking was over, and I plotted it up on my laptop and compared it with real observations and the simulations our group runs, and, damn, if it didn't line right up. I was only tentatively extremely excited because, more than once, I had taken a plot to my adviser, and he'd look at it and say, 'Oh, this can't possibly be right.' So, I took some time to work through some little sanity checks before I brought it down the hall. As it turned out, it seemed to do all right at describing line-of-sight velocity dispersions, star formation rate, and star formation efficiency in galaxies, which is not something you wake up every day and do. To take a couple of lines of algebra and some intuition, and make some statements about how star factories in the universe work is, to me, pretty exciting."

"Having been here for a few years, I know it’s not easy for anyone. But during my first term, I was really intimidated and still under the impression that everyone was a lot smarter than me, and that I was the only one having a hard time. But then, in my sophomore year, I was taking organic chemistry. It was said to be a really hard series, but I actually felt like I was doing well. And I was doing it on my own, studying on my own. When I got my final grade, I felt like that was a breakthrough. I thought, 'OK. I am more than capable of handling the work here. I made the right choice.' Through it all, running has been a really big stress reliever. I noticed that the times I gave it up were the times when I was having even more trouble with school and focusing and just feeling good. Running is kind of how I stay sane.”

First came the fires. Now the rains are causing #mudslides that are wreaking havoc on SoCal’s fire-ravaged hillsides. Researchers in Caltech’s flume lab are studying all the ways in which water impacts soil and erosion. #CAstorm #Montecito Read more about the research at esp.gps.caltech.edu/earth-surface-dynamics-laboratory

A century ago, Einstein predicted the existence of gravitational waves. On 14 September 2015, Thorne and a collaboration of more than 1000 physicists finally observed those waves for the first time. 📷 Alexander Mahmoud .
