At SBU, I was able to pursue my passions both inside and outside of the classroom (Psychology, Media, and Higher Education). That red hot magic was a true team effort.

As the Cassini spacecraft plunged into Saturn, Carolyn Porco ’74,  leader of the Cassini imaging science team, eulogized the historic mission on her blog: The end is now upon us. Within hours of the posting of this entry, Cassini will have burned up in the atmosphere of Saturn … a kiloton explosion, spread out against the sky in a pyrrhic display of light and fire, a dazzling flash to signal the dying essence of a lone emissary from another world. As if the myths of old had foretold the future, the great patriarch will consume his child. At that point,…
