Rose Center Contest Videos

By Sean Carroll | October 15, 2010 10:04 am

The Rose Center for Earth and Space at the American Museum of Natural History has sponsored a video contest, asking participants to express in two minutes or less how science has moved them or impacted their lives. These contests are great ways to let an “audience” become real participants in a process, and have some fun along the way.

Sadly the deadline is passed, so we can’t encourage you to contribute, but you can check out the entries. Here’s a video about the LHC, by Luke Cahill. (I’m using YouTube’s new “iframe” embedding scheme; let me know if it doesn’t work.)

    Are those newspapers real? Did newspapers up to and including the Los Angeles Times (which I assume is one of the city’s primary newspapers) really run doomsday stories about the LHC? That’s almost beyond belief.

    The biggest scientific error in the video that I can find is the bit about questioning Newton. I thought that Albert guy had already done that.

    Question Newton??

    Wow — that was way cool. A fun and inspiring and *moving* pro-LHC/pro-science video in just 2’12” — impressive stuff — and you’re credited too, Sean, so you had *something* to do with it..!
