Click here to see the trailer for Stephen Spielberg's Ready Player One, currently in theaters. Look for the DeLorean. (Hint-it's moving quickly and is black and you're more likely to find it if you watch one of the explanatory videos that elaborates on the trailer.) If you want to, stay on the YouTube page and see lots more about Ready Player One. After all, it's a movie about the native online generation.

Great and uplifting film!

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?
