Schrödinger’s Doorbell examines whether, when a doorbell rings, there is someone necessarily there.
Join PhD aspirants Tom Gordon and Annie Handmer as they try to explain the process of reasoning and evidence to Clive Palmier-Boggs, Tim and Angele. Can someone be both at the door and not at the door at the same time? Schrödinger’s Doorbell attempts to answer this.
Tom Gordon’s research focuses on the engagement, education and involvement of students from the unique perspective of a Physics outreach program. Annie Handmer’s research focuses on the sociology of science and scientific cooperation in extreme environments.
Clive Palmier-Boggs has other insightful analyses you might like to check out. Try Clive “On Generosity” , on nuclear fusion in “Fusion Ute”, or on the efficacy of thermometers – “Celsius Conspiracy”.
Check out Fusion energy = Carbon Neutral. Dr Adelle Wright discusses carbon neutral energy. This is the first of our series produced for National Science Week. Live-streamed at Smith’s Alternative in August 2020 under the title Adventures Abroad in Science.
Dr Adelle Wright answers questions such as “When can we expect fusion energy?” and “Does fusion energy = carbon neutral?” This interview includes the abovementioned satirical piece where Clive Palmier nee Boggs tricks an associate and bamboozles Elon Musk!
The second interview in the series is with Professor Susan Scott, recently the first female physicist to win Australia’s top science award. Listen to her discuss her life in science, gravitational waves, her trips with other women in Antarctica and life in Oxford.
Stay tuned to Dramatis Scientificae for many fascinating interviews with scientists. And if you feel like some social satire (and who doesn’t?) head over to Daisy’s Bicycle – featuring Clive Palmier-Boggs and his brilliant idea re International Women’s Day and Scomo Sapiens.
Then hear Associate Professor Nerilie Abram discuss her views on climate change.
