75 Years of Information that Matters
On May 3, 2006 at the Cosmos Club in Washington, DC, physicists and policy makers gathered to commemorate the first meeting of the AIP Governing Board, held 75 years ago to the day in the Cosmos Club. A wide-ranging symposium, “Diverse Frontiers of Science,” featured talks from many noted scientists in a variety of fields. Later, a reception and dinner was held in honor of the anniversary. It was noted that several talks included a quote from Yogi Berra. The consensus of the speakers on the “end of physics” issue was, “It ain’t over ’til it’s over.”
