Science and Technology Panels / Re: Telling Science from Nons(ci)ense

Hi Carl,

Was this intended as a solo presentation or could I join this panel?  Let me know.

I'd be interested too.  I could cover topics in physics, mathematics and computer science, there have been a lot of major developments in these in the past year and a half that could affect all our lives the near and even far future.

Questions include:

What is dark matter?

What is dark energy?

Where do ultra-high energy cosmic rays come from (these are the "oh-my-god" or OMG particles, which every year strike earth with the kinetic energy of a 75 MPH baseball)?

Is a new theory of matter/energy required to explain what happens at ultra-high energies?

How did the universe begin?

How will it end?

This is a slide presentation I did at LI-Con last March, which was well-attended and well-received.  I think there are lots of physics geeks out there.
