Led by Ned Ladd, professor of physics and astronomy; and Payton Johnson, a junior physics major; a group of Bucknell University students traveled to Cumberland Mountain State Park in Crossville, Tenn. to conduct research along the path of totality during the Aug. 21 solar eclipse. Using portable telescopes and field equipment from Bucknell's astronomy department, they gathered data about the sun's corona, a region of superhot plasma surrounding the sun that is most easily observed during a total solar eclipse. Besides Johnson, the eclipse team included students Alexa Thomas, Jake Simon, Josh Hellerick, Cameron Williams, and Ryan Stanitski.Fall 2017
