This webcast might be of interest to some.  The connectivity should
stream over Internet2 Abilene so the quality should be decent. --Joe

Beyond Einstein - A live webcast from around the Globe

Thursday 1 December 2005

from 12:00 to 24:00



Geneva, 18 November 2005. CERN and the World Year of Physics International
Steering Committee are partnering with some of the world's leading physics
laboratories, science museums and technology partners to present a
twelve-hour live webcast to celebrate Einstein and look beyond the World
Year of Physics 2005.

This unprecedented event will be broadcast live on the Internet from a
webcast studio in the CERN Globe of Science and Innovation. Similar
locations around the world are connected via Tandberg videoconference: the
Telecom Future Centre (Venice), Imperial College London, the Fermi National
Accelerator Laboratory (Chicago), the Exploratorium (San
Francisco) hosting scientists from the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center,
the Bloomfield Science Museum (Jerusalem) and the National Science Education
Centre (Taipei).

>From the seven main platforms, internauts will be taken on a world tour 
>to other physics laboratories and science museums visiting virtually 
>all the time zones of the planet, from Europe to America, from Asia to 
>Tasmania and as far south as Antarctica.

The programme includes subjects such as relativity, gravitational waves,
mass and gravity, antimatter and neutrinos, along with the mysteries
remaining in Einstein's physics, and the technologies derived from it. A
global audience will be able to discuss the impact of Einstein's discoveries
and look beyond them with top-level physicists such as Stephen Hawking and
Paul Davies, and with physics Nobel laureates David Gross, Murray Gell-Mann
and Gerard 't Hooft, connected from the 2005 Solvay physics Conference in
Brussels (17:10 CET).

Einstein was also a refugee, and the United Nations High Commissioner for
Refugees (UNHCR) will discuss the positive contribution refugees can make to
their society of adoption.
