50: Daniel Whiteson - Sorry folks, we used up all the science

Daniel Whiteson, a Professor of Physics and Astronomy at UC Irvine, is the guest on this fun, free-wheeling 50th episode of the Nanovation podcast. Daniel talks about the connection between Lego and particle physics, how a cell phone can detect high energy particles physicists don't think should exist, and the role of nanotechnology in the discovery of the Higgs Boson. Be sure not to miss Daniel’s outreach and communication efforts, especially those in collaboration with his friend and colleague, Jorge Cham. These include the podcast "Daniel and Jorge Explain the Universe," the book "We Have No Idea: A Guide to the Known Universe," and a kids television show launching in 2020 on PBS called "Elinor Wonders Why."
