Students Meet Nobel Laureate at NASA

It’s not every day that you get to meet a Nobel Laureate. But three physics students working with Dr. Peter Gonthier this summer did just that!

Made Rabitoy, Noah Giddings, and Meredith Bomers with John Mather.

While working at NASA Goddard this summer at the start of the Department’s Summer Research Program, Astrophysics Group research students Madeleine Rabitoy, Noah Giddings, and Meredith Bomers had a chance to meet John Mather, senior astrophysicst at Goddard, and 2006 Physics Nobel Laureate.

Made is a sophomore, and Noah and Meredith are first year students this fall. All three were in their first summer working for Dr. Gonthier.
