  • Berkeley Lab nuclear physicist Peter Jacobs discusses the ALICE experiment, setting of the science fiction novel FlashForward.
  • Does antimatter really exist? How and why do scientists produce and use it? Does CERN exist and is there an underground complex deep beneath the Swiss/French border? Is truth stranger than fiction? Find out at the coming public lecture. On Tuesday, May 12, SLAC physicist Norman Graf will discuss the real science behind Angels & Demons, Dan Brown's blockbuster novel and the basis of an upcoming Tom Hanks movie. Graf's' talk is one in a series of public lectures across the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico to share the science of antimatter and the Large Hadron Collider, and the excitementmore » of particle physics research.« less

  • Set in the not-too-distant future, “The Martian” is the story of an astronaut stranded on Mars who has to rely on his own wit and ingenuity to survive the planet’s hostile conditions. If Mark Watney’s mission were real, Oak Ridge National Laboratory would be playing a vital role in his survival, as it would be the sole source of the Plutonium-238 needed for the RTG, as well as the fuel’s containment material in the form of iridium clad vent sets.
  • Jesse Piburn and April Morton of Oak Ridge National Laboratory's Geographic Information Science & Technology Group discuss the science and technology Pokémon GO and how it is used every day to solve real-world problems. (Pokémon GO photos/videos courtesy of Pokémon/Nintendo).
