Join JoAnne Hewett, a theoretical physicist from the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, and Maria Spiropulu, a Caltech experimental physicist working at CERN, who came to the Exploratorium to speak with us about the implications of the Higgs discovery. Cold anti-hydrogen atoms have been made, stored, and detected for the first time at ATHENA! We talked to the ATHENA team about this groundbreaking, historic event in particle physics and learned what's next. Join the Origins team as they travel to Antarctica. We sent Mary, Noel, Paul, and Julie to explore scientific wonders from McMurdo to the Pole. Learn all about the extreme science being conducted at the South Pole in a daily dispatch from Terra Australis Incognita! Today from the South Pole, Mary Miller speaks to Kathryn Rollins, who will tell us about the AMANDA Neutrino Dectector. In this webcast, we talk to Exploratorium staff particle physicist, Thomas Humphrey, about neutrinos What if we did contact another intelligent life form in the universe? What should we say? What traits best represent our humanity? Douglas Vakoch, the SETI Institute’s Director of Interstellar Message Composition, is working with scientists, artists, linguists, composers, and others to imagine how to speak for our planet. For science fair competition taken to the third power, watch two veteran scientists as they battle head to head to determine who is the Iron Scientist. Home-town favorite, Exploratorium physicist, Dr. Dr. Paul Doherty will square off against heavy-weight contender, visiting Exploratorium Osher Fellow and Boston University astrophysicist Professor Kenneth Brecher. They have 5 minutes to teach their favorite activities, and then move on to the secret ingredients: marbles and panty hose What does it mean to find the Higgs Boson at CERN? Hear how this elusive particle could change our understanding of physics. The Exploratorium's Senior Scientist Tom Humphrey takes you around the Antiproton Decelerator, from beam pipes to antihydrogen traps. Follow CERN's Mission Impossible team as they race against the clock to collect all they need to bring antihydrogen back to CERN's webcast headquarters.
