What's Weird About Physicists?
Weird? What's weird about physicists? If you ask some people they will say everything. Nathan Isgur, chief scientist, and head of the Theory Group and University Relations at Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility (Jefferson Lab) will explain why physicists don't act normal and how everyday people can relate to them.
Isgur will present "Quantum Mechanics for Non-Techies or Why Physicists Don't Act Normal" November 19.
The seminar is part of a lecture series to acquaint non-technical employees of Jefferson Lab with technical employees.
"Physicist don't act normal because the world we work in violates human nature laws and common sense," said Isgur.
"It's a serious talk that will strain people's brains, infuriate them, and hopefully they'll laugh at my jokes."
The seminar is 4 -5 p.m. in the CEBAF Center auditorium. Refreshments will be served at 3:30 p.m. in the atrium.
