...and other tales from our visit to Berkeley.
With thanks to the distinguished (and gracious) Darleane Hoffman and Alexander Pines. More videos from our trip to Berkeley will be coming soon, including more about Glenn Seaborg.
Since filming, Prof Pines has informed me the huge device we filmed was in fact THE ACTUAL electromagnet used by Lawrence (not a replica)... And in the hurly burly of filming, he apologises for saying oscillating "magnetic" fields when in fact he meant oscillating "electric" fields! Even famous Profs say the wrong thing sometimes!
