On April 3, 2015, the Space Science Laboratory (SSL) hosted a celebration of the life of Dr. Townes. His delightful wife Frances was the guest of honor. Colleagues of many years, as well as two former and one current SSL director, gave prepared talks. Others spoke extemporaneously. All were grateful for the impact Dr. Townes had had on their life.
The talks were followed by a reception.
Below are some of the photographs.
