An Interview with Saul Perlmutter by Polish schoolchildren. HOU TRA Lech Mankiewicz shares: “As this year Nobel Laureates gather in Stockholm for the final ceremony, I would like to share a YouTube video taken during a videoconference between Saul Permutter and my daughter’s class in Warsaw.

Lech notes and appreciates the role of Carl Pennypacker in arranging this interview.
