Curious about the curvature of spacetime? Want to know how they get all that crunchy goodness into one tiny box of Lucky Charms cereal? Then you need to hit up a scientist…and we’ve got news today over the email transom that can get you the IQ hook up.
We saw this event in our SC09 special events calendar, and scored a little more detail from Anne Heavey at Fermilab
Visit Fermilab’s booth #2157 to enjoy our popular Ask A Scientist program! In their quest to understand the fundamental nature of matter, space and time, scientists at Fermilab build and operate advanced particle accelerators to explore the subatomic world and telescopes to explore the cosmos.
This field of research creates prodigious amounts of data. The computing professionals at this and other physics labs have been instrumental in advancing grid computing, networking, and other areas of technology that enable massive data processing and global collaboration.
On Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday between 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m., a video link in our booth will connect you to a scientist at Fermilab in Batavia, Illinois, ready to engage with you on your science questions. In addition to high energy physics and cosmology, these scientists are knowledgeable about a variety of scientific and technological issues facing us today.
