This is a page from Prof. Laughlin's photo album. It records a trip he took to Tübingen, the German university town that was home to Hegel, Schiller and Hölderlein. The occasion was his delivery of the Unseld Lectures. He rented a bike on his day off and rode around taking pictures. The night photograph is from a colleague, and shows the Hale-Bopp comet over the city on 4 Aug 97.
