    How do you make a neutrino beam?

    281 views / 0 likes - added

    Neutrinos are notorious for not interacting with anything and yet scientists are able to make beams of neutrinos and point them in very specific directions, hitting targets many hundreds of miles away. In this video, Fermilab’s Dr. Don Lincoln explains th

    The idea of electric charges and electricity in general is a familiar one to the science savvy viewer. However, electromagnetism is but one of the four fundamental forces and not the strongest one. The strongest of the fundamental forces is called the str

    The Weak Nuclear Force: Through the looking glass

    178 views / 0 likes - added

    Of all of the known subatomic forces, the weak force is in many ways unique. One particularly interesting facet is that the force differentiates between a particle that is rotating clockwise and counterclockwise. In this video, Fermilab’s Dr. Don Lincoln

    Is radiation dangerous?

    183 views / 1 likes - added

    Radiation is all around us, ranging from the non-dangerous to the lethal. In this video, Fermilab’s Dr. Don Lincoln talks about the radiation and gives you the real deal on whether it is dangerous or not. (Spoiler alert: Sometimes!)

    The Mandela Effect

    300 views / 0 likes - added

    The Mandela effect is an idea that people move between parallel universes. Its name arises because some people have firm memories of Nelson Mandela dying in prison, when in fact he was released and went on to be President of South Africa. In this video, F

    Why can't you go faster than light?

    237 views / 0 likes - added

    One of the most counterintuitive facts of our universe is that you can’t go faster than the speed of light. From this single observation arise all of the mind-bending behaviors of special relativity. But why is this so? In this in-depth video, Fermilab’s

    Einstein’s special theory of relativity is notorious for being easy to misuse, with the result that sometimes result in claims of paradoxes. When one digs more carefully into the theory, you find that no such paradoxes actually exist. In this video, Fermi

    There is no more famous conundrum in special relativity than the Twin Paradox.  One twin travels at great distance at the speed of light and returns, much younger than the other twin.  Yet who is moving and who isn’t?  It is commonly claimed that accelera
