The University of Northern Colorado Physics and Astronomy department gets into the Halloween spirit with some fun and spine tingling science. Dr. Mariana Lazarova will tackle some common myths about the moon including whether full moons cause people to turn into wolves or go crazy. Then Dr. Jan Chaloupka will show us why Quantum Mechanics is the spookiest of all the sciences as he talks half-dead/half-alive cats and how to see things without looking. Join us for this hair raising afternoon of physics fun complete with demos, trivia, prizes, and of course great beer!
Most everyone knows that a meteorite impact killed the dinosaurs but do we need to worry about the same fate? Dr. Charles Kuehn from the University of Northern Colorado will tell us about how often meteorites hit the Earth, how much damage they can do, can they actually be helpful, and what can be done if a big one is headed our way (hint, the movie Armageddon got it wrong). Then Dr. Cynthia Galovich will talk about radiation, when it can be dangerous and just how dangerous, and when it can be helpful. Join us for fascinating science, trivia and prizes, and great beer. There will also be a chance to hold an actual meteorite and to use a Geiger counter to examine some common, everyday objects.
