Physicist John Campbell to give Fire-Walking Lecture and DemonstrationSeptember 16, 2013
Dr. John Campbell, a retired physicist from the University of Canterbury in Christchurch, New Zealand, will offer a fire-walking demonstration in the quad adjacent to the physics building following a lecture on the subject on Thursday, Sept. 19, 2013. The lecture will be held at 7:00 pm in the Physics Auditorium (rm 202), and the demonstration will be in the physics quad immediately following the lecture. Both the lecture and demonstration are free and open to the public.
Campbell plans to discuss the reasons why anyone can fire walk and what the rules are, then invite those in attendance to give it try. He has visited and presented fire-walking demonstrations in Athens twice previously, most recently in 2005.
