Time: 6:00 PM – 7:00 PM (CST)
Location: (Lusa Pastry Cafe, 1120 North Lamar Ave, Oxford, MS 38655)
|Invitation: Science is fun at the Oxford Science Cafe'! Join us for an exciting physics presentation by Dr. Christine Nattrass (UT-Knoxville).|
Open to the Public
Join science enthusiasts at Lusa Pastry Café for our next Oxford Science Café. Dr. Christine Nattrass (UT-Knoxville, Assistant professor in Relativistic Heavy Ion physics at the University of Tennessee at Knoxville will present "The little bang: Understanding the Quark Gluon Plasma"
Physicists have created a hot, dense form of nuclear matter called the Quark Gluon Plasma. This phase of matter is believed to have been created shortly after the Big Bang and may exist today in the cores of neutron stars. We create it in the laboratory at high energy colliders such as the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider on Long Island and the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva, Switzerland. I'll talk about what we know about the Quark Gluon Plasma and how we study its properties.
When: Tuesday, October 16, 2012, 6pm - 7pm.
Where: Lusa Pastry Cafe', 1120 North Lamar Ave, Oxford, MS 38655
