Recently, he’s been speaking out about the Higgs Boson, or "The God Particle" which is a particle of an atom. Without it, the atom could not exist. In his new book </span><em style="line-height: 1.5;">The Particle at the End of the Universe </em><span style="line-height: 1.5;">he talks about "The God Particle." He joins us to talk about his passion for physics and explains it in a language we can all understand, when Charlotte Talks.</span></p><p> Wed, 10 Apr 2013 04:00:00 +0000 24921 at http://wfae.org Astrophysicist Sean Carroll Searching For Alien Life http://wfae.org/post/searching-alien-life <p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">We have long wondered if we were alone in the universe. We’ve sent probes far out into space, landed on the moon and are now exploring Mars in detail. We may yet find signs of life on one of the planets in our solar system but nearly every day, scientists are finding planets around other suns in other parts of our galaxy and beyond. In fact, planets are becoming a dime a dozen but might any of them have life? Answering that riddle is the daily quest for Dr. Ray </span>Jayawardhana<span style="line-height: 1.5;">. He joins us to talk about what he has found.</span></p><p> Fri, 25 Jan 2013 05:00:00 +0000 20064 at http://wfae.org Searching For Alien Life
