Quantum Physics for Dogs at Jefferson Lab: TOMORROW

I've been remiss in my self-promotional duties, but I'm giving a public lecture tomorrow night in Newport News, VA, as part of the Jefferson Lab Science Series. This will be my traditional "What Every Dog Should Know About Quantum Physics" talk, with the sad addition of a slide honoring the late, great Queen of Niskayuna (visible as the "featured image" with this post). This isn't the first dog-physics talk I've given since her death in December, but the previous one was the relativity talk, which has less Emmy-specific content. This one includes one of the video clips I made around a dog dialogue from the book:

That's going to be a little hard to watch...

The talk was also written up in the local paper down there, which is always nice. And I'm looking forward to getting a tour of the JLab facilities. Assuming, of course, that the airline actually gets me there, which is no sure thing. Though my change of planes in Charlotte might be less of a problem than anticipated-- I was fully expecting the Panthers to win big at the Super Bowl last night, and have their team plane come in at the same time as my flight...

Anyway, if you're in that part of the world and free for the evening, stop by and hear some dog physics.

Just a quick reminder that I'll be giving my "What Every Dog Should Know About Quantum Physics" talk (same basic one from Tuesday night) as part of the Saturday Morning Science program (pdf) at the University of Toledo tomorrow, Saturday the 19th. The talk will be at 9:30, with breakfast beforehand…
I'm in Newport News, VA, to give a talk tonight at Jefferson Lab, and they're putting me up at the on-site Residence Facility. The rooms at this are apparently sponsored associated with institutions that use the facility, with big signs on all the doors. Here's mine: Door to my room at JLab's…
Not an exhaustive list, but since I'm noodling around with my calendar, I might as well note some of the stuff I'll be doing this year: I'll be on a panel about international science testing at the AAAS Annual Meeting in February. This will be a different experience-- not only have I never been to…
I gave a talk today for a group of local home-school students and parents, on the essential elements of quantum physics. The idea was to give them a sense of what sets quantum mechanics apart from other theories of physics, and why it's a weird and wonderful thing. The title is, of course, a…
