Easy listening and learning with Deep Science podcasts


Check out this nice selection of physics podcasts taken from public outreach talks organized by Sanford Laboratory on the science that could occur in the Homestake Mine in South Dakota. Here is the current selection of talks:

  • Microbiologist T.C. Onstott of Princeton University talks about how scientists hope to study extreme forms of life in Dark Life for Everyone.
  • UC Berkeley physicist Hitoshi Murayama explains theories about the origin of the universe in Cosmology for Everyone.
  • UC Davis physicist Bob Svoboda explains how the LUX experiment, 4850 feet underground at the Sanford Laboratory at Homestake, will search for a mysterious substance called "dark matter" in Dark Matter for Everyone.

Svoboda was recently elected co-spokesperson for another high-energy physics experiment that could take place in the mine, the Long Baseline Neutrino Experiment.
