We live in a universe that is filled with beautiful and complicated phenomena. By digging into these marvels, physicists have uncovered a relatively small set of rules that govern everything we see. These interaction laws create everything from an atom, to an apple, to a supernova, to even galaxies. What kinds of things can exist if we could tweak these underlying rules?
Scientist Kyle McElroy will explain how materials you can hold in your hand essentially create different sets of rules that allow brand new states of matter, and particles that can’t exist by themselves in the universe we live in. In essence material scientists find ways to bend the laws of physics in ways that science fiction writers would be jealous of.
There will be demonstrations.
