3. Shireen Adenwalla, “Beauty, Symmetry, and Funsize Physics” Have you ever learned a scientific fact and wondered, “How do they know that?” This happens a lot in physics, which often deals with things that are very far away like stars and black holes, or very small like atoms, electrons, and quarks. In this episode, Dr. Shireen Adenwalla introduces us to the nanoscopic world of condensed matter physics, which explains the behavior of familiar solids and liquids but also strange phenomena like superconductivity, superfluidity, and more. Through Shireen’s eyes, we begin to see how beautiful physics can be, but also how this artistic vision can help scientists do better science by finding clever ways to visualize phenomena they can’t observe directly.
