In 2005, Marquette University established the George Coyne lecture series on Astronomy and Astrophysics. Each year since then, the University invites a distinguished speaker to campus to deliver a talk. And every year, Lake Effect has interviewed those speakers, beginning with Father Coyne himself in 2006.
In September 2013, that speaker was Harvey Tananbaum. Dr. Tananbaum is the director of NASA’s Chandra X-Ray Observatory at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics in Boston.
