  1. Mustang Physics, April 2011: Sonifying Subatomic Physics

    On this episode of “Mustang Physics,” Matt Bellis (Stanford University) discusses his spontaneous collaboration with both physicists and non-physicists that has turned particle collision data into music with the goal of giving new communities an experience with physics data. “Mustang Physics” is your gateway into the world of physics and the lives and thoughts of physicists.

    Matt Bellis is a post-doctoral researcher at Stanford University. He works on the BaBar Experiment at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory. He presented the SMU Physics Department Seminar on March 7, 2011, where he discussed his work on the search for fundamental symmetry violations that might explain our asymmetric cosmos. He spoke with me about his effort to use particle physics data to produce music. This effort would allow whole new communities to experience and use particle physics data.

  3. The Guardian’s Science Weekly podcast: The man behind the Large Hadron Collider

    Alok Jha and Ian Sample talk to Professor Sir Chris Llewellyn-Smith, who was instrumental in the creation of the Large Hadron Collider

    Our own science correspondent Ian Sample has written a book about the LHC’s quest for the Higgs boson, Massive: The Hunt for the God Particle. He was happy to tell us all about it.

    Producer Andy visited the new Skin exhibition at London’s Wellcome Collection, where he got to wear a "social condom".

    We also highlight an experiment in science journalism we are carrying out on our website. Story Tracker. It might just revolutionise the way we cover major science stories.

    Finally, next weekend is Science Hack Weekend: Get Excited and Make Things with Science! at the Guardian’s offices in King’s Cross, London. Bring your own bunsen burner. (Actually, don’t.)
