During Thanksgiving break in 2006, Jamie Lomax '07, of North Creek, NY, accompanied Priest Associate Professor of Physics Aileen O'Donoghue and Physics Lab Coordinator Jeffrey Miller to the Arecibo Observatory in Arecibo, Puerto Rico, to conduct research using the facility's 1,000-foot radio telescope.

The excursion assisted Lomax in researching her senior project, which involves the search for galaxies that can only be seen at radio wavelengths, and not in visibile light. These so-called "dark" galaxies are made of hydrogen gas, not stars.
