Program 2017

We have invited seminar holders from around the world, from Nobel laureates to popular “science youtubers”. Last year’s event featured cosmologist Lawrence Krauss and NASA ́s Stefanie Milam, amongst others. This year, there will also be an event featuring doctorial fellows at NTNU, as part of an effort to have the younger generation of researchers represented.

Geronimo Villanueva The Curiosity Rover-project has given us alot of previosly unknown information about Mars. On the 9. of March 2017 Geronimo Villanueva from NASA is going to talk about how this information influences how we look at the history of Mars, and what this has to say for the hability and the possibility of human exploration. Villanueva is a atrobiologist and works for NASA where he, among other things, was a part of the ExoMars 2016 project.

Philip Moriarty Do we really see chemical bonds? With new technology we are able to get more detailed photos of materials on the molecular, atomic, and even sub-atomic scale than ever before! On the 9th of March 2017, Philip Moriarty is going to talk about how this is possible, and explain the quantum mechanical groundwork for it. Moriarty is a professor in physics at University of Nottingham, but is mostly known from the Youtube-channel Sixty Symbols where he explains concepts in physics through short informative videos.

Gina Rippon How much does the brain influence the differences between sexes? According to Gina Rippon, this question is often written about in a misunderstood and ill-informed way. The professor of biology and cognitive neuroimaging is coming to NTNU on the 9. March 2017. She is giving a lecture on the brain's part in differences between sexes, and different interpretations of data within neuroscientific research. Rippon is Pro-Vice Cancellor and professor at Aston University, Birmingham.

Jo Røislien Hva kan matematikk lære oss om hvordan liv fungerer? Den 10. mars 2017 kommer Jo Røislien til oss for å holde et spennende foredrag om dette. Med eksempler fra egen forskning innen medisin, og matematikkformidlingsprosjekter i det offentlige rom, skal han vise hvordan matematikk er nøkkelen til å forstå selve livet. Røislien har doktorgrad i statistikk, og er kjent fra TV-programmene "Siffer" og "Countdown to Collision."

The Researcher's Bonfire Vi har samlet lokale forskere på PhD-nivå til en kveld med uformelle samtaler og avslappet atmosfære. Formålet er å få innsikt i livet som stipendiat og hvordan deres interesse for realfagene har utviklet seg gjennom den akademiske karrieren. Det blir korte introduksjonstaler fra hvert fagfelt, etterfulgt av spennende og tverrfaglige spørsmål. Det blir også mulighet for spørsmål fra publikum. Fagfelt som er representert er matematikk, fysikk, kjemi og IT. For å toppe stemningen kan vi friste med mat fra Cowsea!

Egil Lillestøl On the 10th of Mars 2017the famous Norwegian science communicator Egil Lillestøl will take us on a guided tour through the universe. We will go from the Big Bang until today's universe, and from nature's smallest objects to the universe's biggest structures. In 2007 Lillestøl received an award for his work in communicating science, so the lecture is sure to be both informative and entertaining.
