Kickin’ it with KITP
The Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics has streamed more than 30 hours of videos of events by KITP’s visiting scientists since it launched the series of curated talks from its archives in mid-March. New videos are added each Wednesday, with a recent week’s interesting entries including “Welcome to Your Brain: Why You Lose Your Car Keys but Never Forget How to Drive & Other Puzzles of Everyday Life” from Sam Wang of Princeton University, and “Uncovering the Nature of Dark Matter with Stellar Streams in the Milky Way” from Ana Bonaca, Institute for Theory and Computation at Harvard University. The series also recently featured a talk about the science behind the infamous Montecito mudslides and debris flows – that seems like eons ago in the middle of our “new reality,” doesn’t it? – from Douglas Jerolmack, professor in the Departments of Earth and Environmental Science and Mechanical Engineering and Applied Mechanics at the University of Pennsylvania, dating from March 28, 2018.
