Last Show Recap

CERN Experiments, Science & Fusion

In the first half, after two decades as a top investigator of corporate fraud, and now working as an investigative journalist, Greg Palast discussed the dirty tricks being used by both parties to sway the outcomes of elections.

During the second half, Dr. Ardy Sixkiller Clarke, a Professor Emeritus at Montana State University who has dedicated her life and career to working with indigenous populations collecting stories of encounters with sky gods, giants, little people, and aliens, detailed the UFO stories of "Urban Indians" who live off reservation lands.

CERN Experiments, Science & Fusion

Show Archive
Date: Wednesday - September 10, 2008
Host: George Noory
Guests: Charles Seife

Appearing for the first three hours, NYU Professor and science writer Charles Seife discussed the implications of the CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC) experiments, as well as his forthcoming book Sun in a Bottle about fusion energy. Completed at a cost of $6 billion, the particle accelerator complex at CERN was built to a remarkable scale, with a 17-mile underground tunnel.There's a remote theoretical possibility very close to 0% that the upcoming experiment to recreate conditions around the time of the Big Bang could lead to havoc or the destruction of Earth, Seife commented.

The LHC tests may reveal the presence of the Higgs boson, a heretofore theoretical particle, which could explain how mass and gravity work. A huge amount of energy has to be created in order to spot the particle, he explained. If the LHC creates a black hole, it may mean that we're reaching into another dimension-- something we've never had access to before, Seife noted, calling CERN the new frontier. One of the other planned experiments there will look at matter and antimatter.

In Seife's latest work, looking into the history and struggle to harness fusion energy, he found a series of failed scientific efforts spanning decades. Fission, he suggested, is a better short term solution for energy needs.

At the start of the last hour, Kate McAlpine spoke briefly about her Large Haldron Rap Video. Open Lines followed.
