Wallace Sargent (15 February 1935) 1994 Bruce Medalist The first person from his high school to attend a university, Wallace Sargent studied fluid mechanics at the University of Manchester, but with an eye toward applying it to theoretical problems in astrophysics. He has spent nearly all of his career at the California Institute of Technology, where he has become a spectroscopist, observing peculiar stars, stars in the galactic halo, and peculiar galaxies and quasars. He is a leader in interpreting the spectra of young galaxies, intergalactic clouds, and quasars. He has also worked on the isotropy of the universe by studying angular fluctuations in the cosmic microwave background radiation.
