No frizzy hair and a lab coat? How will the public know your a real physicist?

Great video.

You're mistaking physicists and the other sciences. Physicists have Erwin Schroedinger, Richard Feynman, Steven Weinberg, Brian Cox, and (now) Don Lincoln. The first lived with two women, the second played bongos and was also notoriously successful with women. The third had his Nobel-winning "Aha!" moment while driving a brand new, bright red, 1967 Chevy Camaro. And the last two guys wear tshirts during lectures, are dazzlingly-witty and one of them has a charming accent.

Lab coats are soooooooo........chemical........

The newest video is out. This one is on how we look for the Higgs boson.

Be advised that tomorrow an updated video will be made with the most current information. Unfortunately it will have a different URL. I'll post that too.

Don,

The dark side of the forum is just not the same without you! Boo hoo. The inmates have taken over the asylum, and it's just not the same without your very astute commentary and very stabilizing influence here.

And today's video is the same as yesterdays, but with a summary of today's results at the end.

Hay Lincoln thanks very much for your videos this is indeed fascinating stuff and you’ve made it relatively easy to understand, I’ve never been privy to scientific news that close to the happening you guys must be flat out .

Exploring the knowledge frontier totally rocks. If I was disgustingly rich, I'd be doing more or less the same thing.

Glad you liked it.

It's nice to see you lurking here a little once again.

It's been another year. Happy Saturnalia! May the spirit of Mithras be with you!

The next one is filmed and in the can. It is waiting for for time availability of my producer. It is about the Standard Model.

It turns out that there are significant constraints on subjects that can be described. Unfortunately, those constraints mean only particle physics and cosmology topics can be featured. I am trying very hard to increase the rate at which these are done.

Just now watched the one on Anti-matter. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=en2S1tBl1_s&feature=plcp

Subscribed to the channel to make it easier for me to see new ones when they come out. http://www.youtube.com/user/fermilab

Didn't see the one on the standard model. Guess it's not up yet, unless I somehow missed it.

No...the SM one didn't come out yet. It turns out that we just had our annual user's meeting, plus a symposium extolling the virtues of nearly 30 years of data taking with the Tevatron. This week is a major workshop and then maybe my A/V guy can come up for air. Maybe.

I'll lean on him, but he's very good at resisting leaning.

Here is a new video. It is on statistics and discovery and it draws an analogy with figuring out if a die is loaded.



If it looks like I am melting, it was 105 degrees that day and the air conditioning was out.

Why is that guy basically wearing all black when it is 105 degrees outside?

It's inside. A black body radiates or absorbs heat better than other colors and when you're inside, it's a good way to be cool.

Plus...dude...I look good!

That must have been a real "fun" day at the "office" Lincoln!

(I am trying to take a break from the Metaphysics section because I am starting to completely lose my mind over there. Besides for your obvious good looks, you were always obviously much smarter than me in avoiding the same. Maybe I will start a new thread on 'abortion', and effectively put an end to any semblance of sanity that I still have left)

You know....it should be. It's in the can. It just needs the producer to do his magic and...well...they're pretty understaffed.

It will come out, but I am pretty unhappy with the pace.

Lincoln,

Good explanation! I showed it to a group of students (mixed in knowledge and interest). They really understood Eddie! Still waiting to see those T-shirts on Zappos.com.

Some of those tshirts are on CafePress. Others are on Zazzle. A few I made myself.

And Eddie totally rocks!

I realize that I have not posted a bunch of new videos. For your viewing pleasure:

Why is supersymmetry interesting?



What is supersymmetry?

Hey great! Thanks for posting the links. They'll be a pleasure to watch.

I notice most are from 5 to 6 minutes long. Good length for digestible, retainable information.
Then the viewer can pause and go on when he thinks he has absorbed that content, and go on when he's ready for the next.

That's one advantage brief YouTube format can have over the traditional academic 50 minute lecture.

Another video, this one on the status of searches for the Higgs boson. This video should describe the state of the art through mid-/late-2015.



And can't forget the ones done in collaboration with TED-Ed

Dark matter:

Very informative. Super convenient! Thanks!
Pardon my distraction but posting gets this thread on my "Your posts" list. Wouldn't want to miss one.

I'm cranking them out at a rate of about 2/month. One of the next ones is on the observed matter/antimater asymmetry. However one of the best videos I've ever made (and maybe one of the best ones >>ever<< made) on the Higgs boson will come out in about 2 weeks. You'll hear about it here!

This is my highly-awesome Higgs animation through the TED-Ed people



I also now have one on the matter/antimatter asymmetry, which is a Big Question of particle physics.

Nice! Thanks for sharing with us, I like the cocktail party explanation of how the Higgs field gives mass by the strength of its interaction with various visitors. First heard this analogy without the tax collector (nice addition) and I believe the massive entrant was Margaret Thatcher.
The animations are well thought out, well executed, and add a lot.
I could use a bit more depth in the mystery of the disappearing antimatter. I have the feeling that there's more you could say and still have the 5 minute short communicate to wide audience.
But over all the series gives a very good impression. I hope more will be forthcoming.
