60 Symbols Q&A: Physics and Astronomy on YouTube

What would happen if you put your hand in the Large Hadron Collider? Why does 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 … = -1/12? Did the Big Bang happen on a Tuesday? These are just some of the topics that physicists from the University of Nottingham have tackled on the popular YouTube channels Sixty Symbols, Numberphile, and Deep Sky Videos with award-winning filmmaker Brady Haran. Join us for a panel discussion and Q & A on topics ranging from quantum mechanics to cosmology and all the physics in between. www.sixtysymbols.com, youtube.com/sixtysymbols
