J. Robert Oppenheimer Lecture: "Anticipating a New Golden Age"

March 04, 2010 

Speaker: Frank Wilczek, Nobel Laureate and Professor, Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Fundamental physics is poised to take a great leap forward in coming years. An extraordinary instrument - the Large Hadron Collider, or LHC - will enable us to see whether some gorgeous ideas about the ultimate laws of physics describe reality correctly. Nature has given us hints: Is she teaching, or teasing? In a multimedia presentation including rap video, spectacular images, some amazing ideas, and a few jokes, Mr. Wilczek demonstrates why this is an especially exciting time to be a physicist - or a curious person.
