After Dark: A Big Bang Machine on the Moon, The Universe, and Drink Lab

big bang machineA Big Bang Machine on the Moon, with James Beacham

CERN's Large Hadron Collider was built for one purpose: To explore the mysteries of the universe. In 2015 it began colliding protons at thirteen teraelectronvolts, the highest energy ever achieved at a collider, and began a twenty-year research program. The experiment recreates the conditions of the universe as they were just a fraction of a second after the Big Bang, and what physicists are learning so far is that our universe seems to be extremely odd. But to know and understand exactly how odd it is we need to build a bigger collider to get even closer to the moment of the Big Bang. Join particle physicist James Beacham as he explores what we would likely learn from bigger colliders - such as a particle collider - on the moon, whether we live in a multiverse, and what such huge projects mean for society.

Full Spectrum Science: The Universe

We tend to think of “home” as the building in which we live, or the town or city where we reside. Voyage to the edge of the known universe, and gain some perspective on the tiny planet we call home. See some of the amazing ways the universe is structured, and learn how it’s evolved.

Drink Lab: Fat Washing

How do you fat wash spirits? Which flavors pair well together? Learn what bacon, coconut, and other oils can do for your cocktail as well as some fat washing techniques to try at home.
