Philip Sadler of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, discussed several common misconceptions in physics. Mark Trodden of Case Western University summarized the status and future of particle cosmology. Speaking on the topic of the "Mars Direct" was Robert Zubrin, president and founder of Pioneer Astronautics, a space-exploration R&D firm. Finally, Alfred Hubler of the University of Illinois described a special feature of his introductor physics courses called "CYBERPROF" - a Web-based homework grading system.
