Pop-up particle physics and LHC talk!

Sorry I’ve been a bit MIA lately. Momma was in town, and some other crazy things happened. But that’s life eh?! Anyways, BRING ON THE PHYSICS!

Tomorrow, May 25th, 630-8pm, at the New York Academy of Sciences.  The speakers will be Lisa Randall (Harvard), Michael Tuts (Columbia), and the headliner, Emma Sanders (CERN). This is all in honor of the LHC, of course, and Sanders’ new particle physics pop-up book! (Thanks Sam Z.!)

Here’s some info off the NY Academy of Sciences page:

Alan Alda will moderate as leading physicists Lisa Randall (Harvard) and Michael Tuts (Columbia), join CERN’s Emma Sanders to explain new science coming from the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva, Switzerland. In particular, they’ll share details of the ATLAS Experiment, a particle physics experiment that began earlier this year searching for new discoveries in the head-on collisions of protons of extraordinarily high energy.

ATLAS will learn about the basic forces that have shaped our Universe since the beginning of time and that will determine its fate. Among the possible unknowns are the origin of mass, extra dimensions of space, unification of fundamental forces, and evidence for dark matter candidates in the Universe.

There’s more information on the website, and you need to register on that site as well. Enjoy! Wish I could be there!
