Convergence/Skepchicon Day 2: “Physics or Fantasy?” Panel

Posted by mattusmaximus on July 5, 2010

At the end of day two at Convergence/Skepchicon, I had the privilege of being on the “Physics or Fantasy?” panel with Jennifer Ouellette, Stephanie Zvan, Lois Schadewald, Jim Kakalios, G. David Nordley, and Pamela Gay.  We discussed a lot of questions & ideas regarding modern physics and the reality and/or myths associated with it.  It was a very lively discussion that we had with a packed room (on Friday night, even!), and I was very happy to be included.  Unfortunately, since I was on the panel, I couldn’t transcribe the discussion – but I did record it for you.  Just click this link to go to the audio (it will open a PowerPoint file with audio embedded)… Skepchicon-Physics or Fantasy

  2. I found the panel very interesting and entertaining. I was the guy who remembered PSSC (University of Chicago High School, 1966-67) and was wearing a kilt. Thanks!
