090: CERN — Doing the things a particle can with James Beacham (Live from SXSW)

Science, y’all.

Olivia is (at least in podcast terms) still at SXSW 2018, talking with Dr. James Beacham, with the ATLAS Experiment at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, who was part of the panel Decrypting the Universe: Science and Art at CERN last month in Austin.

The Higgs boson particle? The Large Hadron Collider? That’s all CERN. No big deal, just figuring out the origin of life.

After answering some of the big questions like, “What artistic patterns might data inspire?” and “How do we decode nature’s messages?”, James sat down to answer our own questions on how he and CERN have been using digital media to answer some of these questions. If you’re a science nerd (like most of us here at Whole Whale), this is the podcast for you. And if you aren’t a science nerd, spend a bit of time on CERN’s social media, and you will be.
