About the Author

Dr. Kennedy received his Ph.D. in physics from the University of Notre Dame in 1966, and since 1966 has been a professor in the Department of Physics at Creighton University. Dr. Kennedy has taught physics at Creighton University for over forty years, and has developed a number of courses based on the works of Albert Einstein, beginning in the 1970s with a request from the college to develop a "non-threatening" science course for the non-science majors. In 2008 Creighton University awarded to Dr. Kennedy the designation of Professor Emeritus and of Dean Emeritus.
