Discovery of the Buckyball at Rice University in 1985 that led to a Nobel Prize for three of the five team members, and ushered in the modern era of nanotechnology, will be recalled by surviving team members October 2 in Dallas, Texas.
Moderating this historic evening will be Dr. Malcolm Gillis who was president of Rice University when the Nobel Prize for discovery of Carbon60 (dubbed "buckminsterfullerene" or buckyball) was awarded. This event will reunite two men who shared the Nobel Prize with Rick Smalley and one of the two students who were key members of the team. Dr. Harold Kroto is flying in from an engagement in Taiwan and Dr. Robert Curl will arrive from Rice University in Houston. Dr. Sean O'Brien, currently with Texas Instruments, is back in Dallas from assignment in Belgium.
