Invitation to science students/faculty, May 23rd, NJ State Senate, Trenton -- experts on fusion energy development followed by tour
Senator Joe Pennacchio of the NJ State Senate is sponsoring a hearing/symposium in the NJ State legislature on May 23 from 9 to 1 p.m. The theme of the hearing/symposium is: 'What are the Prospects and Requirements for the Early Development of Fusion Energy, and what are the Implications for the U.S., New Jersey, and the World?”
We would like to invite interested students and faculty to attend. This is an exceptional opportunity to participate in a discussion of the national and international work being done in fusion energy development, plasma physics, and space research. This is the future for young people! We are entering a new era.
Following the hearing, the Vice President of Princeton Satellite Company, is organizing a tour of the Princeton Plasma Physics Lab (PPPL) for interested attendees. Sen. Pennacchio has received bi-partisan support and definite bipartisan interest in his initiative. His invitation to the hearing went to all the state legislators in NJ, the press, and universities.
Would you please notify science teachers of this opportunity, and see if they would like to register science teachers/faculty to attend? For registrations, please notify Suzanne Klebe at: 201-220-7739, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
