We sat down for A Conversation With... Cosmologist and Professor of Physics Wolfgang Rindler. Rindler began his career at UT Dallas in 1963, when the organization was called the Graduate Research Center of the Southwest. Through nearly five decades of service to the University and its predecessors, Dr. Rindler has authored or co-authored seven books, advanced the study of cosmology and general relativity and ignited the imagination of thousands of students. His studies on the universe, how it moves and how Einstein’s theories apply are cited worldwide. During our visit, Dr. Rindler shared his thoughts on: * His nearly 50 years of combined service to UT Dallas and its predecessor institutions, the Graduate Research Center of the Southwest and the Southwest Center for Advanced Studies. * Cosmology, relativity and the impact of Einstein’s theories. * How teaching continues to inspire and enthuse him. * Becoming an American citizen at age 85.
