My shero Mae Jemison -Astronaut, Art Collector and Dancer.

Mae Jemison on teaching arts and sciences together Astronaut, dancer and art collector talks about how both the arts and sciences in education are fundamental for the health of our nations future.  (Ted.com)


Beauty and truth in physics: Murray Gell-Mann on TED.com Amazing talk from a Nobel Prize Theorist who explains particle physics, the strong and weak force, electromagnetism, and gravity  - and the beauty of a simple equations makes the universe a more than amazing place, but profoundly elegant.  (Ted.com) 


from a GREAT site with Killer COOL videos about how galaxies form etc, etc - a MUST -->

 Brian Cox on CERN's supercollider take a virtual tour of the CERN supercollider and learn what we can understand from particle physics, matter and anti-matter... and more.

and here's the latest update on what is going on with CERN.  i.e.:  Why did we need to fix it... etc.


SciFri Radio: Particle Hunters
Researchers announced this week that they've detected the production of single top quarks at Fermilab. We'll talk about the find and the search for...


SciFri Radio: Trouble at the Large Hadron Collider
A breakdown in a magnet system during testing of the Large Hadron Collider last week may have the massive physics experiment off-line until next...


SciFri Radio: Looking forward to LHC
Physicists around the world are looking forward to the startup of the Large Hadron Collider at CERN later this year. We'll talk about the project,...

Patricia Burchat sheds light on dark matter     (on Ted.Com)

"Patricia Burchat studies the structure and distribution of dark matter and dark energy. These mysterious ingredients can't be measured in conventional ways, yet form a quarter of the mass of our universe."  (Ted.com)

 

Brian Greene on string theorythe guy known as "the guy seen on Nova's 'Elegant Universe'.  


 

Richard Dawkins on our "queer" universe      This is all about if you think you understand quantum mechanics, then you really don't.  What are the limitations of the mind to understand it.  But not really.  Definitely, a fun one for fans of Deleuse an Guittari.  Browninian motion (chaos and fractals)  (Ted.com)

 Stephen Hawking asks big questions about the universe  

 

George Smoot on the design of the universe  understanding what the universe looks like.  What does dark matter, dark energy etc  look like.
