Widener Alumnus to Discuss and Sign New Book

April 27, 2010

Jeff Blomquist, a 2006 alumnus of Widener University, will be discussing and signing copies of A User’s Guide to the Universe: Surviving the Perils of Black Holes, Time Paradoxes, and Quantum Uncertainty at 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 28 in the Art Gallery in University Center.

A short profile of Blomquist and an excerpt from the book appears in the spring issue of Widener Magazine, and he also is featured in an online video on Widener’s web site.  A double major in physics and mechanical engineering at Widener, Blomquist illustrated and co-authored the book with Dave Goldberg, an associate professor of physics at Drexel University. Goldberg will join Blomquist for the discussion and reception at Widener.  Professor Harry Augensen, pictured at right with Blomquist on a trip to visit a crater Arizona, will do the introductions.

Young Widener Alumnus Co-Authors and Illustrates Book Addressing Universal Questions

March 30, 2010

In the upcoming spring issue of Widener Magazine that is due out very soon, we have a short profile of Jeff Blomquist ’06, as well as an excerpt and cartoons he drew from A User’s Guide to the Universe: Surviving the Perils of Black Holes, Time Paradoxes, and Quantum Uncertainty.

Blomquist collaborated with Drexel University Associate Professor Dave Goldberg on the book published by John Wiley and Sons earlier this month.  You’ll have to wait until the magazine arrives in April to read more — although, of course, you can buy the book now.   Here’s a video about Jeff and his experience at Widener and the origins of this work.  The clip also features some of his drawings.
