Wonderfest: Spider Love and Dark Matter - Livestream

Wonderfest Science Envoys are early-career researchers with special communication skills and aspirations. Following short talks on provocative modern science topics, these two Science Envoys will answer questions with insight and enthusiasm:

  • UC Berkeley entomologist Trinity Walls on Creepy or Captivating: A Spider Scientist's Perspective  - How have recent discoveries about spiders changed beliefs that have been passed down for generations? Can we see that the study of spiders is beneficial to society? One person's life-long journey - from curious child to rigorous researcher - reveals spider science to be an avenue of creative self-expression that offers rich insights into nature.
  • Stanford astrophysicist Jyotirmai "Joe" Singh on Exploring the Dark Side of the Universe - Deeply mysterious dark matter constitutes a staggering 85% of the material universe. What is the evidence for dark matter's ubiquitous existence, yet why has it been so difficult to detect in the laboratory? Cutting-edge theories and experiments within modern physics do give us hope that we can understand dark matter, unlocking key mysteries of the cosmos.
