Smalley honored at service
A model of a buckyball sat on the podium as colleagues, students, friends and family of Richard Smalley spoke about his influence on Rice and the world at a memorial service Tuesday. About 150 people attended the service held in the Grand Hall.
Smalley, a physics and university professor who died in October 2005, was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1996 for discovering buckminsterfullerenes, now known as buckyballs. Smalley came to Rice in 1976 and invented four new fields of chemical research while here.
