A humorous look into serious science
Production company Not Too Serious Labs lives up to its name with their latest production, When Things Get Small.
Covering - among other things - the science of magnetic nanodots (1) in the lab (2) of UCSD physicist Dr. Ivan Schuller (who is himself a wacky fellow) When Things Get Small asks - then answers - the question "What could a stadium-sized bowl of peanuts, a magic tennis ball, shrinking elephants, and a crazed hockey player possibly teach us about nanoscience?"
Entertaining and informative, in a "make me laugh but teach me something" way. When Things Get Small has been favorably compared to the Food Network's Good Eats program.
From UCTV's Press Kit:
When Things Get Small was funded by the National Science foundation, and produced by UCSD-TV in partnership with the California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology (Calit2) and UCSD Division of Physical Sciences.
