Science Hack Day: SF 2015

378 views

Published on

Slides for my "lightning talk" at Science Hack Day: San Francisco (2015) on open data sets in particle physics. Small discussion of why some data sets are closed (e.g. LHC) while others are open (e.g. Fermi). Includes some suggested open science projects for the engaged public.

 Collider = Giant Microscope

 What is the organizing principle of particle physics?
 Data is mostly closed to public (starting to change) Fermi Telescope (10 gigabytes / year)

 What does Dark Matter annihilate into?
 (*—And other astrophysical questions not in my field)
 Data is open to public

 Thousands of researchers making sure things are done correctly Real reason: avoid wasting time babysitting theorists who will “discover” things that aren’t there in the data CAVEAT: THIS IS NOT A FAIR DESCRIPTION OF CERN!
