Professor Daniel Whiteson, a visiting physicist from Aspen Center for Physics, will be at Explore Thursday March 30 at 4:30 PM. Professor Whiteson's field of research is experimental high energy physics. He's worked at the Large Hadron Collider, where the Higgs boson was discovered. One of his projects is to employ the world's cellphones to study cosmic rays. His research has appeared in The New Yorker, Ars Technica, PBS and others. He is the author of Frequently Asked Questions About the Universe, so is prepared for whatever our audience may throw at him. And Explore's Jeff Bernstein, a former high school physics teacher, will be on hand to translate. He has a Ph.D. from UC Berkeley and presently teachers at University of California at Irvine.
