I remember one time I sat beside Reinabelle in our junior year Math class. She dozed off during the lecture, and then when it was recitation time she woke up and promptly raised her hand. I looked at her, startled, and she shrugged and said "para matuto" and proceeded to solve some random trigonometry problem on the board. Correctly, of course.
What can I say, this is the same girl who was speaking of infinitesimal time intervals when the rest of us mortals were struggling with, well, high school stuff.
So this came as no surprise:
A new study confirming the existence of dark matter and dark energy, as first proposed by Albert Einstein, is rocking the world of astrophysics. That study, to appear in the journal Nature this week, was done by a team headed by Ateneo alumna Reinabelle Reyes, an astrophysicist based at Princeton University in New Jersey.
I'd say it's about time. ^^
