An interview: with an optical physicist

On the recent tenth anniversary of the first Apollo moon landing, Dr. John Geake received a special citation from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration for his work as a Principal Investigator for the analysis of the returned moon rock samples. His investigation was a joint one, including coresearchers at Paris Observatory and Hull and Leicester Universities. According to NASA, their study of the luminescence and optical properties of the lunar material "significantly increased man's knowledge and understanding of the nature of the Moon and its environment. "

Dr. Geake is currently Reader in Physics at the University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology, where he is head of the Instrument Physics Group and of the Applied Physics Unit—an industrial consultancy group. He is an active Christian Scientist, a member of Fourth Church of Christ, Scientist, Manchester, England.
