1 Global Communication for a Global Science 5 th Recontres du Vietnam 11 August 2004 Judith Jackson Fermilab/InterAction

2 11 August 2004Rencontres du Vietnam 2004/JUDITH JACKSON 2 A great time for particle physics! “Physicists think they have a pretty good story to tell these days about the Big Bang, black holes, dark energy, extra dimensions and multiple universes. In the 30 years I have been covering this stuff, it has never been wilder.” The New York Times, Dennis Overbye, Deputy Science Editor, The New York Times

3 11 August 2004Rencontres du Vietnam 2004/JUDITH JACKSON 3 16 th Century Revolution In 1514, Copernicus recognized that the earth is not the center of the solar system. It caused a scientific revolution.

4 11 August 2004Rencontres du Vietnam 2004/JUDITH JACKSON 4 The fundamental questions What is the nature of the universe and what is it made of? What are matter, energy, space and time? How did we get here and where are we going?

5 11 August 2004Rencontres du Vietnam 2004/JUDITH JACKSON 5 21 st Century Revolution Now we recognize that only five percent of the universe consists of “normal” matter—another scientific revolution!

6 11 August 2004Rencontres du Vietnam 2004/JUDITH JACKSON 6 Dark Matter! Dark Energy! “Every cubic inch of space contains a miracle.” Walt Whitman A revolution in our understanding of the universe. A wonderful time for particle physics! Same questions. New universe.

7 11 August 2004Rencontres du Vietnam 2004/JUDITH JACKSON 7 Neutrinos! Extra Dimensions! What are neutrinos telling us? Are there extra dimensions of space?

8 11 August 2004Rencontres du Vietnam 2004/JUDITH JACKSON 8 Antimatter! What happened to the antimatter? How did we survive the Big Bang?

9 11 August 2004Rencontres du Vietnam 2004/JUDITH JACKSON 9 Breakthrough of the year! “Nothing’s bigger than the universe; the question is what it’s made of.” Donald Kennedy Editor-in-Chief SCIENCE 19 December 2003

10 11 August 2004Rencontres du Vietnam 2004/JUDITH JACKSON 10 Particle physics? It’s about the smallest things in the universe— and how they connect to the largest things in the universe.

11 11 August 2004Rencontres du Vietnam 2004/JUDITH JACKSON 11 Exploring the new universe Observations in space Observations underground and on the surface Experiments at particle accelerators

12 11 August 2004Rencontres du Vietnam 2004/JUDITH JACKSON 12 Quantum Universe To discover what the universe is made of and how it works is the challenge of particle physics. Quantum Universe presents the quest to explain the universe in terms of quantum physics, which governs the behavior of the microscopic subatomic world. It describes a revolution in particle physics and a quantum leap in our understanding of the mystery and beauty of the universe.

13 11 August 2004Rencontres du Vietnam 2004/JUDITH JACKSON 13 The InterAction Collaboration A new, collaborative way of doing business for particle physics communication. Established in 2001 at DESY, Hamburg Global field—global communication

14 11 August 2004Rencontres du Vietnam 2004/JUDITH JACKSON 14 Current InterAction members APS Argonne Brookhaven Berkeley Lab CCLRC Rutherford Appleton CERN Cornell DESY Dubna Frascati (INFN) Fermilab Gran Sasso (INFN) IHEP Beijing INFN IN2P3 / Orsay KEK NIKHEF Saclay/ DAPNIA PPARC SLAC Thomas Jefferson TRIUMF All particle physics labs are invited to join.

15 11 August 2004Rencontres du Vietnam 2004/JUDITH JACKSON 15 InterAction, Paris 2004 “ Not only to strengthen the international science of particle physics, but to set visible footprints for peaceful collaboration across all borders.”

16 11 August 2004Rencontres du Vietnam 2004/JUDITH JACKSON 16 August 2003

17 11 August 2004Rencontres du Vietnam 2004/JUDITH JACKSON 17 News, photos, graphics, reports, talks, speakers, conferences, labs, universities… One-stop shopping for particle physics communication News Wire has1088 subscribers in 50 countries

20 11 August 2004Rencontres du Vietnam 2004/JUDITH JACKSON 20 Opportunity A wonderful story to tell— “It has never been wilder.” A big change in the way we communicate

21 11 August 2004Rencontres du Vietnam 2004/JUDITH JACKSON 21 …and challenge “Physicists can still be heroes.” The New York Times, Dennis Overbye Deputy Science Editor The New York Times

22 11 August 2004Rencontres du Vietnam 2004/JUDITH JACKSON 22 “…across all borders.” “ Not only to strengthen the international science of particle physics, but to set visible footprints for peaceful collaboration across all borders.”
