Saturday Morning Physics | On Deciding the Next Big Science Experiments

James Wells, Professor (U-M Physics, Leinweber Center for Theoretical Physics (LCTP))

The advancement of science requires decommissioning old experiments and pursuing new experiments. But which new experiments? How should we decide? Professor Wells will show answering these questions necessarily goes well beyond scientific considerations and lays bare philosophical, economic, and political viewpoints. He will illustrate these principles in action for large-scale experiments such as particle colliders, nuclear research reactors, and missile defense tests.
