Squyres Receives 2012 Whipple Award: Response



I started down this road a long time ago, and I've had the good fortune to be guided by many people along the way. Joe Veverka was my advisor in grad school, and he taught me both how to do science and, by his example, how to be a generous mentor and colleague. Joe was last year's recipient of the Whipple Award, and in a lovely twist, Joe's advisor when he was in grad school was none other than Fred Whipple himself. So I dedicate this to my academic father and my academic grandfather.
