The link above is an interview I did for CTV’s National Affairs on a new result that could change our understanding of dark matter. Previous evidence points to dark matter not being able to interact with other dark (or regular) matter except weakly through gravity. Researchers at UBC took a look at a “cosmic train… Read more »

Ian Tucker from The Guardian’s Observer interviewed me about Lindy Hop, Quantum Mechanics, and Project Q. Check it out.
I am the new CTV National Affairs “Science Sensei”, and will periodically be appearing on the show to comment on recent science-related stories. This week I discuss solar flares, sun spots, space hurricanes and invisibility cloaks. Check it out.
I was interviewed this afternoon for CTV’s National Affairs about recent work that has been done (not by me) at Cornell University building an invisibility cloak in time. The interview was cut short due to a last minute addition of a cabinet minister, so I didn’t get to use my Moses analogy. Next time.

The second was a front page cover story by Greg Mercer of the Waterloo Record. Within an hour of the front page story in the… Read more »
I was wondering how long it would take someone to turn Mitch Benn’s Double-slit rap about our experiment into a Youtube video. Apparently not long at all. Here it is below. Maybe I’ll take a crack at turning it into a Youtube video someday.
Our double-slit experiment work has now been eulogized in song! The BBC Radio 4 program, Friday Night Comedy recently rapped about our work. What is most amazing is that they got the physics right and managed to sneak in a dig about the Bond movie Quantum of Solace. Skip to 5:30 to where the song… Read more »
