Angels & Demons Event at UT & Online

Here is the information about the program - click on the link to find out how to watch the webcast online. (Thanks to Cindy T. for this info.)

NEW! Upcoming Hot Science – Cool Talks event to feature Angels & Demons book discussion.
Chat with Physics researchers about Dan Brown's book Angels & Demons.
Book discussion participants will be eligible for door prizes! Topics of discussion will center around questions such as:

* What are some of the more outrageous ways in which Angels and Demons portrays antimatter?
* What exactly is antimatter? How exotic a substance is it? How long have we known about it?
* When we actually create antimatter, do we create it 'out of nothing'?
* When antimatter annihilates matter what happens? Are we worried about a future bomb?
