A humorous look into serious science

When Things Get Small

Posted on April 07, 2006

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.
