  • BioSTEAM Artist: Lakota Cosmology Meets Particle Physics- Converging Worldviews
    "What happens when a physicist from CERN, a Lakota water protector,  a Tewa educator and a new media artist meet with 26 Taos fourth graders? Perhaps, opposing worldviews will converge to create a new balance in the universe!"
  • Picturing particles
    “Particle physicists study a field that is, by its very nature, invisible to the naked eye,” says Riccardo-Maria Bianchi, who works on ATLAS visualisation software. “That can make the task of visualising particle interactions very challenging.”
  • The Standard Model
    The theories and discoveries of thousands of physicists since the 1930s have resulted in a remarkable insight into the fundamental structure of matter: everything in the universe is found to be made from a few basic building blocks called fundamental particles, governed by four fundamental forces. Our best understanding of how these particles and three of the forces are related to each other is encapsulated in the Standard Model of particle physics. Developed in the early 1970s, it has successfully explained almost all experimental results and precisely predicted a wide variety of phenomena. Over time and through many experiments, the Standard Model has become established as a well-tested physics theory.

    "On August 17, researchers around the world detected the signals from a neutron star collision that took place 130 million years ago. Georgia Tech Professor Laura Cadonati explains what happened, how it was seen, and what researchers have learned."
  • Video: Powers of Ten (1977)
    "Powers of Ten takes us on an adventure in magnitudes. Starting at a picnic by the lakeside in Chicago, this famous film transports us to the outer edges of the universe. Every ten seconds we view the starting point from ten times farther out until our own galaxy is visible only as a speck of light among many others. Returning to Earth with breathtaking speed, we move inward- into the hand of the sleeping picnicker- with ten times more magnification every ten seconds. Our journey ends inside a proton of a carbon atom within a DNA molecule in a white blood cell. POWERS OF TEN © 1977 EAMES OFFICE LLC (Available at www.eamesoffice.com)"
  • Video: The Basics of the Higgs Boson
    "In 2012, scientists at CERN discovered evidence of the Higgs boson. The what? The Higgs boson is one of two types of fundamental particles and is a particular game-changer in the field of particle physics, proving how particles gain mass. Using the Socratic method, CERN scientists Dave Barney and Steve Goldfarb explain the exciting implications of the Higgs boson."

    "If you were to take a coffee cup, and break it in half, then in half again, and keep carrying on, where would you end up? Could you keep on going forever? Or would you eventually find a set of indivisible building blocks out of which everything is made? Jonathan Butterworth explains the Standard Model theory and how it helps us understand the world we live in. Lesson by Jon Butterworth, directed by Nick Hilditch." TED-Ed includes Lessons
