Zegna Creates a Menswear Big Bang! When Italian fashion powerhouse Ermenegildo Zegna debuted its Fall/Winter 2014 Men's Collection live from Milan on January 11, much of the extensive worldwide publicity centered on the fashion show’s astronomical theme, created by internationally renowned astrophysicist and author, Dr. Fiorella Terenzi, a former model who now teaches at Florida International University in Miami.
FIU astronomers Caroline Simpson and James Webb, along with graduate students Trisha Ashley and Sarah Dhalla attended and presented papers at the 223rd meeting of the American Astronomical Society which was held at the National Harbor in Washington DC. Trisha Ashley, working with Dr. Simpson, presented her PhD dissertation work in a 15 minute oral paper and Sarah Dhalla presented a poster paper on her research with Dr. Webb. Dr. Webb also presented a Stocker Astroscience Center poster.
The Meade 12" LX-200 telescope was lifted onto the steel framework in the Stocker Astroscience center dome and set up in preparation for observing. Al we need now is the green light to occupy the building and we are in business!
