So what do they do at Brookhaven, Argonne, and the other government owned physics research facilities? Now is your chance to find out. Four government physicists will be chatting on Twitter this afternoon at 2PM Eastern. You are welcome to chime in at #LabChat. The scientists involved cover everything from the early universe, to treating cancer with nano-particles and a glitter-sized method of collecting solar power. If you are interested in learning more about the scientists involved, you can find an announcement with details on the Department of Energy’s website. In the video above, one of the scientists involved in today’s chat, Paul Sorenson, discusses the work being done at Brookhaven.
