     Most of what is in the Kenyon College Physics News are seminars/talks that the department hosts every Friday afternoon at 3-4 p.m. on physics related topics.  There is also a Physics Dept. lunch at noon on Fridays, but alas no pictures of it.  There has been a recent addition to the Kenyon Science Quad, the Henry Moore sculpture.


Henry Moore donates a sculpture titled, "The Large Spindle Piece."  Check out some pictures of its installation.
