MEDIA Advisory: PubSci: A New Science Conversation Series from Brookhaven National Lab

Brookhaven scientists to discuss Big Bang physics at first PubSci event on March 11

EVENT: PubSci, Brookhaven National Laboratory's new quarterly science café and conversation series, kicks off with an event on March 11 entitled, "Big Bang Physics and the Building Blocks of Matter." At the event, physicists working at Brookhaven Lab's Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC), the last operating particle collider in the U.S., will discuss what drives their curiosity:

  • How did the Universe take shape?
  • What binds matter together? 
  • How can we answer these questions at Brookhaven?

All are welcome to come, join the conversation, and talk about science in plain language with: 

  • Berndt Mueller, Associate Lab Director for Nuclear & Particle Physics, Brookhaven National Laboratory
  • Paul Sorensen, physicist, Brookhaven National Laboratory
  • Ágnes Mócsy, theoretical nuclear physics collaborator at RHIC and associate professor of physics and astronomy at Pratt Institute

Hoptron Brewtique in Patchogue will provide a lively setting for anyone interested in engaging in discussions with these scientists in a casual way. You don't need a degree to join the conversation, but you do need to be over 21. (The venue's rules, not ours.) Admission is free.

WHEN: 7 p.m. on Tuesday, March 11, 2014

WHERE: Hoptron Brewtique, 22 West Main Street, Patchogue, NY 11772. 

DETAILS: PubSci is a quarterly science café presented by Brookhaven National Laboratory's Stakeholder Relations Office. PubSci brings expert scientists to public venues to discuss cutting-edge topics and research in an informal setting.
