Come out and join the TCNJ Astronomy Club for a great time with food, friends, and of course a great view of everything the cosmos has to offer. Even if you’ve never used a telescope before, stop by and try one out. Snacks and hot chocolate will be provided. Be sure to bring your favorite sweatshirt and pair of gloves, it’s going to be cold. The event is sponsored by TCNJ’s Astronomy Club, Physics Department, and School of Science.
David C. Brock is a historian of science and technology who specializes in the history of semiconductor science, technology, and industry.

Brock’s publications include Makers of the Microchip: A Documentary History of Fairchild Semiconductor, co-authored with Christophe Lécuyer and published by MIT Press, and Understanding Moore’s Law: Four Decades of Innovation, for which he was editor and contributor.
