Back to the Origins - By Ricardo Karam

The Bohr Alumni Association invites everyone to join for a talk on the potential of using original sources in physics education by Ricardo Karam.

Ricardo is from the Department of Science Education and is currently teaching the course on History of Physics. He is also starting a new course called History of Quantum Mechanics focusing on reading original articles and dicussing their use in science and education.

If you are considering taking any of the two courses or in general is interested in how we engage and choose science material this is very much a talk for you!
Hope you will join.

Here follows the abstract by Ricardo:
Textbooks are the main sources we use to teach and learn physics.
This is the result of a well-established tradition and no doubt has
many advantages. However, it also makes physics teaching more
distant from the original ideas of the discipline and tends to obscure
their historical genesis. What if we went back to the origins and read the original sources? Could physics students make sense of them, and, more importantly, would they gain something from being confronted with ideas-in-the-making? In this talk, I will present some aspects of the original formulations of Newton’s force, Faraday’s/Maxwell’s lines of force, and Schrödinger’s wave equation. This will enable a specific discussion of what can be learned from each episode, as well as a broader reflection about the advantages (and challenges) of using excerpts from original sources in physics teaching.

Udflugt til Barsebäck

Hej alle alumner

Vi vil gerne inviterer jer en tur til Barsebäck. Besøget på barsebäck vil være gratis. Det vil blive d. 5/6, hvilket er grundlovsdag så de fleste skulle have fri denne dag. Da der kun er et begrænset antal pladser, 30, skal man ikke vente for længe med at tilmelde sig. Vi giver mulighed for at man gerne må tage sin familie med, dog skal man være over 14 år for at komme ind på værket. Besøget vil tage 2.5 time og begynde kl 13.00. Hvis I har nogle spørgsmål til værket kan man tilgå hjemmesiden, https://www.barsebackkraft.se/en/, ellers er man mere end velkommen til af kontakte mig.

Værket - Det praktiske:
· Tid: 13.00-15.30
· Dato 5/6-2018
· Adresse: Kraftverksvägen 150, SE-246 57 Barsebäck.
· Man skal have gyldigt billede-ID med.
· Fotografi er forbudt.
· Hvis man har nogle allergier må mange gerne skrive det til mig, da der vil blive serveret en lille snack.
· Man skal være godt gående, da vi skal gå på mange trapper og med en elevator under rundvisningen.
· Hvis man modtager medicinsk radioaktiv behandling, må man desværre ikke deltage I rundvisningen.

Angående transporten har vi valgt at dette skal ske ved en samkørselsordning, da vi rejser over grænser og derved vil busleje være dyrt. Det tager ca 1 time og 7 min. at kører fra blegdamsvej til barsebäck. Vi håber at vi sammen kan finde ud af at få organiseret folk så alle har kørselslejlighed derhen. Betaling, afhentnings sted og - tidspunkt skal koordineres med den man kører med.

Tilmeldingen sker ved af skrive til mig, se mail nederst. Jeg skal modtage følgende informationer, fra alle personer der skal tilmeldes:

· Person/CPR-nummer
· Fornavn
· Efternavn

På selve dagen skal der medbringes pas og/eller kørekort.

Da der kun er et begrænset antal pladser, skal der lige være lidt styring med om man er med eller ej, så det er først når man har fået et 'Du skal med' fra mig, at man er tilmeldt.

Vh.

Science Faction: Arrival + Interstellar

NOTE: THIS EVENT IS IN DANISH.

Science Faction er en aften i filmnørderiet og videnskabens tegn.

Til denne aften har vi inviteret en håndfuld videnskabelige eksperter til at diskutere nogle af vores yndlings science fiction film, nemlig Arrival og Interstellar. I løbet af aftenen vil vi blandt andet komme ind på hvorfor sorte huller kan virke som tidsmaskiner, hvordan man decifrerer et komplet ukendt sprog, hvordan og hvornår vi finder liv i rummet, og ikke mindst vil vi forsøge at forestille os, hvordan det føles at være isoleret fra menneskeheden og sin hjemplanet.

Der vil være salg af øl og vin både før og efter hver panel diskussion, og imellem foredragene vil der være en quiz med sci-fi præmier. Arrangementet vil foregå på dansk.

Diskussionen vil tage udgangspunkt i udvalgte klip fra filmene, som vil blive vist undervejs, men VI VIL OPFORDRE TIL AT SE FILMENE INDEN DETTE ARRANGEMENT, DA VI IKKE HOLDER OS TILBAGE FRA AT DISKUTERE HELE HISTORIEN OG SLUTNINGEN!

ARRIVAL
Sidste år ramte Arrival biograferne til stor glæde for sci-fi fans verden over. I filmen besøges jorden for første gang af højtudviklede rumvæsener, og menneskeheden står pludselig overfor den nærmest umulige opgave det er at kommunikere med de mystiske nyankomne. Til at diskutere filmen har vi inviteret Marie-Louise Lind Sørensen som er sprogforsker ved Københavns Universitet og specialiserer sig i sprogtypologi, samt Diana Juncher, som er PhD i astrobiologi fra Niels Bohr Institutet og sci-fi forfatter.

INTERSTELLAR
I 2014 udgav Christopher Nolan mesterværket Interstellar. Filmen følger astronauten Cooper og hans datter, fysikeren Murphy. Cooper tager på en rejse ud i rummet der fører ham gennem ormehuller og tæt forbi sorte huller, og ikke mindst langt, langt væk fra hans familie, og endda hele menneskeheden. To af de store temaer er altså isolation og Einsteins relativitetsteori, og vi har derfor inviteret Hanne Avnegaard, som arbejder som psykolog i det danske forsvar, samt Marieke van Beest, som forsker i alternative tyngdekraftteorier og sorte huller på Niels Bohr Institutet, til at diskutere filmen med hinanden.

Arrangementet præsenteres af Bohr Alumni Association og Space Generation Advisory Council.

Seaborg: Making Nuclear Sustainable

We are excited to invite you to our next event where Seaborg Technologies will come and tells us on how their work in making nuclear power sustainable in the future.
Here is the abstract of the talk:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Killing coal with capitalism (and molten salt reactors) - why, what, and how?Since the beginning of the industrial revolution, cheap and abundant energy has transformed and developed Western societies beyond anyone's wildest imagination. Now the developing world is next in line, albeit with drastically fewer tools at their disposal. The long-buried hydrocarbons that fuel human civilisation have come at a price, including rising sea levels, longer and more severe draughts, intensifying extreme weather, and acidifying oceans. With the worst yet to come, it is clear they must be avoided. Something has to change.Seaborg Technologies is a small company working to usher in this change. Seaborg develops advanced, next-generation nuclear reactors that retain the advantages of conventional nuclear power while improving the downsides. The reactors, called molten salt reactors, produce carbon-free, reliable energy at prices below coal, in a sustainable and inherently safe manner.In this talk, Eirik Eide Pettersen, co-founder and CSO of Seaborg Technologies, and an NBI alumni, will discuss the why, what, and hows of molten salt reactors. The focus will be on the challenges that must be overcome to displace fossil fuels with Seaborg reactors, be they political, financial, regulatory, or technical in nature.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After the talk, we will gather to socialize, where you will be able to buy something to drink and we will provide some snacks for you to enjoy.

Peter Madsen "From the ocean floor to space: Extreme innovation"

Join us for an inspirational talk by the entrepreneur and amateur submarine/rocket builder Peter Madsen, otherwise known as Raket Madsen!

Peter Madsen earned worldwide recognition after he constructed the world’s largest amateur submarine, and again after the successful rocket launch in 2011 by Copenhagen Suborbitals, when the world’s strongest amateur-built rocket broke the sound barrier. This constituted the first step on their path to space, with the goal of Peter Madsen flying to an altitude of 130 km in just three to four years.

The event takes place at HCØ (Aud. 6) and is hosted together with the brand new alumni association of Physics. Peter will give a talk about his many experiences titled “From the ocean floor to space: Extreme innovation”. Afterwards, there will be refreshments and a chance to reconnect with alumni and students from Nanoscience and Physics.

Further details will be provided in the weeks preceding the event.

Looking forward to seeing you!

Best regards,
The naNODE board and Bohr Alumni Association
