In the year 1969, the world was changing...and the Mets won the World Series. Former first baseman Ed Kranepool played as part of that team. Later, joining a team of three other patients and two doctors at Stony Brook University Hospital, he found success with a new kidney.
Stony Brook University Professor Paul Kelton taught this class that was televised on C-SPAN about Abraham Lincoln and Native Americans. He talked about the Dakota Wars in Minnesota which resulted in 38 executions, the removal of the Navajo, and the 1864 Sand Creek Massacre.
Serena Williams is one of the greatest tennis players and athletes of all time. She's won 23 grand slams and countless other trophies and titles. With the help of a physicist from Stony Brook University, we break down Williams' serve technique into four parts: acceptance window, power, spin, and disguise.
Acacia Leakey is no stranger to sustainable engineering — in fact, she grew up with it. A 2018 graduate of the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences, she received her BE and MS degrees in mechanical engineering and has been instrumental in establishing the College’s Global Innovation Field School at Turkana Basin Institute in Kenya. She is putting her education to work developing sustainable off-grid technological solutions for African economic development.
White lab coats – traditional attire for healthcare professionals – were donned proudly by the incoming class of 136 medical students at Renaissance School of Medicine at Stony Brook University as they officially became physicians-in-training.
In the field of particle physics, Chang Kee Jung is one of the world's leading experts in the study of neutrino oscillations, which occur when a neutrino of one type can change into one of a different type, a phenomenon which could prove critical to understanding the role of antimatter in the origin of the universe. Neutrinos are similar to the more familiar electron, with one crucial difference: neutrinos do not carry electric charge. Jung is also an expert in proton decay, a hypothetical form of decay in the Grand Unification Theories in which the proton decays into lighter subatomic particles. He has participated in the T2K Experiment and recently joined the leadership team of the DUNE experiment, aimed at deepening the understanding of the physical universe through the study of neutrinos. Lastly, Jung studies and teaches a course about the physics of sports.
