The 29th episode of Consilience is out! You can download the mp3 here (12.9mb) and the
file’s page on Archive.org is here.
This weeks episode does not follow our standard format. Our usual features have been dropped to accommodate an interview with Claire A. Lee, a PhD student at the University of Johannesburg working on the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. Claire’s PhD thesis is on the search for the Higgs boson through its decay to two W bosons.
Claire discusses the recent announcement of the possible discovery, by the OPERA experiment in Italy, of neutrinos travelling faster than the speed of light, how this might be possible, and what it means for the Standard Model of the universe.
Normal service will resume next week.
