1 Future Faces of Physics Jeopardy! Jeopardy!

2 Sci-Fi to Real Life Famous Numbers Nobel PrizesSub-AtomicSports Physics

3 This fictional teleportation machine that moved people from one place to another in Star Trek now has a real- world equivalent -- using photons, not atoms yet. Sci-Fi to Real Life - 100

4 The P in PET scans, this anti- particle – which formed the basis of the brains in Isaac Asimovs robots – is now used to study the sources of medical seizures in the body. Sci-Fi to Real Life - 200

5 The S in LASER, this word describes a process that contrasts with "spontaneous" emission of light. Sci-Fi to Real Life - 300

6 Philo T. Farnsworth is often credited with this invention, in which images are transmitted via electromagnetic radiation. Sci-Fi to Real Life - 400

7 True to the sound of her name, she taught everyone "how" to slow light down to bicycle speeds in Sci-Fi to Real Life - 500

8 3.142 Famous Numbers - 100

9 2.997 x 10 8 m/s Famous Numbers - 200

10 1.602 x C Famous Numbers - 300

11 6.626 x J-s Famous Numbers - 400

12 1.380 x J/K Famous Numbers - 500

13 Nobel prizes are paid for by this invention. Nobel Prizes - 100

14 Known for picking locks and playing the bongo drums, he won a Nobel Prize for his fundamental work in quantum electrodynamics. Nobel Prizes - 200

15 This Nobel winner was asked to be President of Israel, but declined. Nobel Prize - 300

16 The 2008 Sigma Pi Sigma Congress will be held at an accelerator lab in Chicago named after this Nobel Prize winner. Nobel Prize - 400

17 Albert Fert of France and Peter Grünberg from Germany shared the 2007 Nobel Prize in Physics for this discovery. Nobel Prize - 500

18 It is the lightest stable particle. Sub-Atomic - 100

19 This particle has long been thought to be mass-less, but recent results indicate it may have a very small mass. Sub-Atomic - 200

20 The two quarks that comprise almost all matter. Sub-Atomic - 300

21 The class of particles that includes electrons, positrons, neutrinos, the muon, and the tau particle. Sub-Atomic - 400

22 The particle which holds quarks together inside hadrons. Sub-Atomic - 500

23 When a football travels through air, introductory physics texts claim it follows this type of path. Sports Physics - 100

24 In this team sport, Newtons first law is most nearly realized. Sports Physics - 200

25 In these two sports, balls have non-uniformities, known as dimples and seams, which surprisingly enhance the balls range. Sports Physics - 300

26 In this Fred Flintstone sport, the player who increases the entropy the most wins. Sports Physics - 400

27 The shape of a soccer ball resembles this form of carbon, from the Fullerene family. Sports Physics - 500
