50th Anniversary

Since 1962 the Professor Harry Messel International Science School (ISS) has been hosted in the School of Physics at the University of Sydney.

The ISS is the flagship program of the School and the University’s Foundation for Physics.

2012 marks the 50th year since the inception of the ISS and was celebrated at a gala reception in the University of Sydney’s Great Hall and Main Quadrangle on Tuesday 27 November 2012.

The objective of this event was to celebrate the ISS, its alumni and ultimately to achieve perpetual motion – changing lives in perpetuity through the Professor Harry Messel International Science School.
