Our Next General Meeting – May 8
Join us on Friday, May 8th at 7:30 pm at Buffalo State College Classroom Building C122 for a presentation by Jonathan Reichert, CEO of Teachspin Inc. and former professor of Physics at UB. “More than light is coming from the sky… There are lots of particles raining down on us from outer space that we don’t see with our human sensors. Some of this is invisible light, which physicists call photons. For these we have special telescopes, such as infrared cameras, x-ray sensors, and radio telescopes. But I want to explore an even more exotic particle that can be detected and studied with an instrument our company builds for advanced laboratory instruction. I will bring this instrument with me and you will finally observe particles that have been going through you, and stopping in you, all your life. Come and “meet” this very strange and wonderful particle and find out what it may tell us about the universe.”Read More
