Center to develop high-energy ozone

     If it’s successful, the discovery could play an important role in putting a man on Mars.  
With nearly twice the energy of normal, bent-shaped ozone, cyclic ozone could hold the key component for a future manned mission to Mars.
    No one has ever seen — let alone made — cyclic ozone. But that could all change at Temple’s Center for Advanced Photonics Research, which has been awarded a one-year, $1.25 million grant to develop cyclic ozone by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Administration.
    The research is being carried out under the guidance of center director Robert J. Levis, a pioneer in strong-field, laser-based chemistry and adaptive photonics.

This Week in Temple History
February 3, 1988

   “The In Crowd,” a motion picture that had major scenes shot at the University, had its world premiere in Philadelphia. Interiors for the movie were filmed at Tomlinson Theater in August 1986, and proceeds from admission provided scholarships at the School of Communications and Theater. The director was Mark Rosenthal, a Temple alumnus. During the filming on Main Campus, more than 60 members of the Temple community worked behind the scenes and in front of the camera; in one scene, the Tomlinson stage was transformed into a train station with actual doors and windows from the Allens Lane station.
