Dr. Kate Scholberg’s research begins deep underground. There, giant particle detectors
Dr. Kate Scholberg’s research begins deep underground. There, giant particle detectors work to observe incredibly small bits of matter called neutrinos. Trillions of neutrinos pass through your body every second, but they rarely interact with you or any other particle in the universe. Yet some scientists believe they may hold the key to many perplexing questions, like why antimatter is so rare, how stars explode, and what the universe was like moments after the big bang.
Join Dr. Scholberg for dinner and a discussion on this elusive particle, why the fundamental science is so important to our understanding of the universe, and how it might practically affect our lives.
Selected attendees will be notified via email several days in advance of the dinner with details regarding meeting location. All dinners will be within reasonable driving distance to Duke campus.
Science & Society will also provide a shuttle for those unable to arrange transportation to the dinner dialogue location. Shuttles will depart 30 minutes before the scheduled event from the front entrance of the North Building on West Campus. Click here for a map.
