LPL 50th Anniversary Celebration

On October 1 and 2, 2010, LPL hosted a party for friends and alumni in honor of its 50th birthday. The anniversary banquet was held at the PHOENIX Science Operations Center on October 1. Ninety guests attended and Dale Cruikshank gave a keynote address titled "Beauty and Grandeur in Planetary Science." Approximately sixty alumni, faculty, students, and friends attended the next day's symposium.
