    Episode 5 – She Doesn’t Just Play With Dirt

    Episode 5 – She Doesn’t Just Play With Dirt

    Danielle Schlesinger, a third-year student in the geosciences department, tells us about beam time (hint: it has nothing to do with gymnastics or spaceships), discusses her travels to the faraway lands of South Carolina, and tells us whether or not you should believe the hype about Claritin and why. Does it really last for 24 hours? We’ll see.

    Episode 4 – Water In A Very Small Cup (and other adventures)

    Episode 4 – Water In A Very Small Cup (and other adventures)

    Elia Altabet, a fifth-year student in the chemical and biological engineering department, stops by to discuss his research on water in hydrophobic confinement, the appropriate number of jam band shows for a person to have seen, and why people used to think that the Soviet Union had a special kind of water that could turn the ocean into Jello.

    Also, if you’d like to learn more about Elia’s research, check out this story – his research was published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences a couple of months ago (pretty cool stuff)!

    *NOTE – Julie Andrews played the wonderful English nursemaid in Disney’s 1964 adaptation of Mary Poppins, which was described by the New York Times as a “fair-lady film.”

    **ANOTHER NOTE – Julie Andrews later performed the song “Getting to Know You” in the 1992 studio cast recording of the musical play The King and I.

    Episode 3 – Wings Without Birds

    Episode 3 – Wings Without Birds

    Scott Dawson, a former sixth-year Princeton student in the mechanical and aerospace engineering department, stopped by the show eight days before his dissertation defense to tell us about how the way birds flap their wings may influence how planes and cars are designed, why golf balls have dimples, and if Arnold Schwarzenneger could have been the first human to take flight (during the Terminator days, obviously.)

     

    ALSO: Scott makes cool videos about his work! Check out this one he recently presented at a conference here: http://gfm.aps.org/meetings/dfd-2014/541751a969702d585c3d0300

    Episode 2 – A[nother] Beautiful Mind

    Korhan Kocak, a third-year student in the politics department, tells us how game theory can explain why Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump keep talking about the SAME THINGS OVER AND OVER

    And how Nash equilibrium can explain why going for the hottest girl/guy at a bar is always the right move (as long as none of your bros are doing it too)
