50 YEARS OF PHYSICAL SCIENCES
This month we’re premiering the first talk from UCSD’s Division of Physical Sciences lecture series commemorating the campus’ 50th anniversary. Professor Tom Murphy kicks it off by sharing how his research involving Einstein’s relativity theory helped locate a Russian rover that had been lost on the moon for almost 40 years.
Then, stay tuned in February for Vivek Sharma’s discussion about the quest to uncover why matter has mass at Europe’s Large Hadron Collider.
IRA FLATOW: SCIENCE IS SEXY
Last November, Scripps Institution of Oceanography and the William Nierenberg family presented NPR’s Science Friday host Ira Flatow with the 2010 Nierenberg Prize for Science in the Public Interest. UCSD-TV was there to capture his acceptance address for our viewing audience.
