It was as expected. Cornell is a great place to work and it is great to be recognized as being part of this organization. I look forward to seeing what is in store for us under President Garrett's leadership.

This is the second event at Cornell that Professor Kaltenegger was a participant. The first was the inauguration of the Sagan Institute and the second, this lecture, as part of the Summer 2015 series Professor Kaltenegger is obviously an accomplished astronomer, but is also quite an extraordinary public speaker and advocate for fundamental scientific research and exploration. The talk was quite fascinating and enlightening. She also gave a clear explanation of techniques utilized at the cutting edge of astronomical studies. An enoyable and worthwhile evening for me. Thank you.

A big disappointment. We expected a crowd of parents and we looked forward to conversing with other people. Instead, it was an indoor event, and it had no sense of coordination. We left.

It was wonderful that the event was so well attended that the venue was not large enough to hold everyone. Sadly, I was one who had to watch on the screen in Warren Hall. I particularly appreciated that no one interrupted or heckled Dr. Carson. The audience was very respectful. Dr. Carson's manner was genuine and conversational. We enjoyed hearing him and now have a sense of his perspective on the issues facing our country.

Dr. Carson is a brilliant man. People use the term "It's not brain surgery" for some things. Well, perhaps it IS! And perhaps Ben is the right person for it. To pull from a quote in the Cornell Daily Sun today (4/22/15), I loved it when Ben said: “This is not a Democrat problem or a Republican problem,” Carson said. “We need to get away from making everything into a political issue … so that we can all get behind [to] fix the problems rather than continuing to exacerbate them.” - I couldn't agree more.

it was an excellent talk on the John Ruskin dedication towards ecology and love foe nature. He presented the painting in such a manner that looks like speaking paintings from different aspects of nature. I must congratulate the speaker who put life into the history and defined the life as real wealth.

Pretty good! Not very technical, but then it wasn't expected to be. It was fun and humorous, but he could have done with less of selling his own work (past and present).
