At a reception at the Sky View Canteen of the Department of Physics and Astronomy in Aarhus Professor Jørgen Christensen-Dalsgaard and his until now 40 years in science was celebrated. One of the gifts was a framed poster with quotes from Jørgen, provided lovingly by co-workers and former and present students. The poster was produced by Dialaegt.dk - a growing company run by two former students of astronomy who found a faster way to fame!

Here you see Jørgen looking thoroughly (but in vain?) for misprints.

Acting Dean of Science and Technology Lars Andersen gave the official congratulating speak, and professor Hans Kjeldsen entertained with amongst other things the tale of the many times that he has been officially fired by Jørgen - definitely in vain!

For those who know Jørgen, it is obvious that the real highlight of the reception was near the end when he was served cakes - one of his favourites; nøddehorn. His wife Birte is counting!

Congratulations on the day from all of SAC.
