In a recent open Letter -this past February- on behalf of the American Physical Society, President Robert Byer condemned the wave of Iranian scientist assassinations of the last two years. The American Physical Society finds the recent wave of killings of Iranian scientists extremely troubling and welcomes the United States' condemnation of this type of violence, the letter reads. The American Physical Society condemns acts of violence against scientists everywhere and reaffirms its commitment to international collegiality among physicists and its belief that science can be used to promote international peace.
