AWARDS AND HONORS IN THE FIELDS OF RELATIVITY AND COSMOLOGY:
Recipient of a NASA grant in the Breakthrough Propulsion Physics program (1999-2001). Awarded for theoretical work in General Relativity geometrically relating electromagnetism and gravitation and designing an experiment to detect predicted effects. Contract for $100,000 for the study “Search for Effects of an Electrostatic Potential on Clocks in the Frame of Reference of a Charged Particle.” The proposal submission was peer-reviewed by a committee of scientists from National Labs and Academia. The research was completed and published. Dr.
Mensa Colloquium 2006: Revolution in Cosmology – Oct. 6-8, 2006, Albany NY. Ringermacher created and hosted this event. Speakers included: Brian Greene (Columbia U.), Lee Smolin (Perimeter Inst., Canada), Jeremiah Ostriker (Princeton U.), Vera Rubin (Carnegie Inst.). There were 320 registered and paid attendees for a selfsupported non-profit conference.
