On Friday night, The New School again hosted an event for the World Science Festival. This time, the discussion centered around some of nature’s tiniest known particles – neutrinos. Bill Weir, of Nightline fame, moderated the conversation among three panelists. Janet Conrad, a professor of physics at MIT, works on an experiment called MiniBooNE to probe the nature of neutrinos. Francis Halzen is a physics professor at the University of Wisconsin in Madison, and his research helped to make the largest neutrino detector in the world a reality.

From 30 May through 3 June, the World Science Festival is bringing together leading scientists, prominent artists, and influential thinkers to meet and dialogue in a series of public events in New York City. We are attending and covering four of these events.
