Clint Crosby/Lockheed Martin
Physics and Astronomy Seminar Series

Clint Crosby
Clint Crosby – September 20, 2007



The Clint Crosby/Lockheed Martin Physics and Astronomy Seminar Series is named in recognition of MSU alumnus Clint Crosby and his employer, Lockheed Martin. Their generous contributions over many years have supported numerous departmental activities, including this seminar series.


The Clint Crosby/Lockheed Martin Physics and Astronomy Seminar Series brings to the MSU campus speakers from a variety of midwestern colleges and universities. Talks presented cover a wide range of subjects in physics and astronomy; some are given at the general interest level while others are aimed at more advanced students in the field.


Seminars are usually given on Thursdays at 4:00 PM. All are welcome to attend.
