Beyond Einstein

I've said it before and I'll say it again; this is the International Year of Physics.The aim is to celebrate the amazing year of 1905 when Einstein published three incredible academic papers. As part of the many celebrations, on 1st December (Thursday) large physics laboratories around the world will be conducting a continuous 12-hour webcast called Beyond Einstein. The programme covers quite a range of topics covering the theory of relativity (16:00 CET), the creation (17:35 CET) and future (17:45 CET) of the web, antimatter (22:45 CET) and more. Astronomy-wise there will be a talk at 18:30 CET which will have live links to the Ice Cube experiment at the south pole. If you haven't heard of Ice Cube before, it is a cubic-kilometre sized observatory for detecting elusive particles called neutrinos. It sounds interesting.
