A conversation with the professor of theoretical physics at Harvard.
In clear, nontechnical language, string theorist Brian Greene explains how our understanding of the universe has evolved from Einstein's notions of gravity and space-time to superstring theory, where minuscule strands of energy vibrating in 11 dimensions create every particle and force in the universe.
Award-winning physicist and science popularizer Sean Carroll reveals the history-making forces of insight, rivalry, and wonder that fuelled the Higgs search and how its discovery opens a door into the mind-boggling domain of dark matter and other phenomena we never predicted.
Ms. Sandick is a theoretical physicist, studying particle physics beyond the Standard Model. She is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Utah. In this talk she proposes improving diversity in the physical sciences.
Dr. Klay kicks off The Forum with a foray into what being a particle physicist means on a day-to-day basis and how scientific inquiry both brings us closer to truth and helps us form connections with other human beings worldwide.
The standard model of particle physics is a theory concerning the electromagnetic, weak and strong nuclear interactions which mediate the dynamics of the known subatomic particles. Because of its success in explaining a wide variety of experimental results, the standard model is sometimes regarded as a theory of almost everything.
Lawrence Berkeley Lab particle physicist Ayana Holloway discusses her work, inspiration, and the journey of becoming a physicist.
