The Music of David Salminen

Vera Rubin

The October 29, 2011 concert is dedicated to astronomer Vera Rubin – really a legend in our time – who did some of the foundational research in the 1960’s and 1970’s that indicated unexpected galactic behavior and necessitated a complete re-assessment of where the bulk of the mass of the universe is to be located, along the lines of…  maybe there’s ‘dark matter’ out there!  Being a truly independent thinker, Rubin entertains a different explanation of her pioneer data collections than many of her colleagues…  At any rate, her overall attitude is truly inspirational: “The joy and fun of understanding the universe, we bequeath to our grandchildren – and to their grandchildren.”
