FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
A Summer Study on the Future of Particle Physics
Nobel Prize-winner Leon Lederman highlights La Noche de la Ciencia at Carbondale Community School, Monday, July 9, from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.
SNOWMASS VILLAGE—Leon Lederman, winner of the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1988, leads a group of distinguished physicists in a Spanish-language presentation at Carbondale Community School on Monday, July 9 from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.
“La Noche de la Ciencia,” which is free and open to the public, begins at 6 p.m. with lively science demonstrations by the traveling Physics Van of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Spanish-speaking physicists will be on hand to offer translations.
During a refreshment break at 7 p.m., Dr. Lederman and many other physicists—including those speaking Spanish—will be available for informal conversations. At 7:30 p.m., Prof. Arnulfo Zepeda of CINVESTAV in Mexico, a member of the Pierre Auger Cosmic Ray Observatory, will speak on “Ultra-Energetic Cosmic Rays: A New Window to Our Universe. At 8 p.m., a panel will discuss “What Does Basic Science Have to Offer Us: Questions and Responses.”
Among the panelists who have confirmed their participation:
…and many more.
To reach Carbondale Community School, take route 82 to 133 and turn left; go to Doloras Way and turn right; after passing the rental equipment store, turn right and look for the school sign.
La Noche de la Ciencia is a community outreach effort of the Science Outreach Center in Carbondale, and of “Snowmass2001: A Summer Study on the Future of Particle Physics.” The three-week conference is being held at the Snowmass Conference Center.
