Can you find this sculptural element in Cleveland?  It commemorates a landmark scientific achievement.

Case Quad, Michelson Morley experiment 1887

Read about the Michelson Morley experiment on wikipedia and visit Hovorka Atrium (Adelbert Rd., Case Campus) to see bronze sculpture busts of the nobel prize winning scientists by William McVey and a model of the experiment. Do I get a prize?

Breakthroughs fair, you're a sculpture expert. 

Sorry, I can't offer a prize other than treating you to a smoothie and falafel at Algebra Cafe sometime.

I think that those of us in the know, when it comes to Cleveland's unique assets, should post these little mysteries as often as possible--before they are destroyed.

That's a great prize!

 Thanks for posting this sculpture that is rarely seen by anyone outside of the Case community. It is not part of the Putnam Collection, I don't know the name of the artist. Another insteresting fact, its made from stones from an old building on campus. I will ask Emeritus Professor and Dean Harvey Buchanan, about it,  I think it was constructed during his tenure.

HOPE--found in NEO?

Evelyn ID'd the first mystery commemoration--any one care to ID the location of the plaque below?
