Skulls in the Stars

“Secrets of the Universe” campaign has begun!


I’ve been quite busy the past two weeks, but I just wanted to drop a short note to let folks know that a really cool new science cinematic experience is being crowdfunded on Indiegogo: Secrets of the Universe!

This project, partially funded by the National Science Foundation and supported by CERN, will give an unprecedented look inside the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva.  This is where the Higgs boson was discovered, and where the next fundamental, well, secrets of the universe will be uncovered.  What else is there to discover about the fundamental forces of nature?  The LHC will be the place we find out!

The movie will be filmed and presented on IMAX screens throughout the world, and they’ve enlisted a remarkably talented set of scientists and science communicators to help, including some folks I know through twitter, Dianna Cowern (@thephysicsgirl) and Deborah Berebichez (@debbiebere).

Two days in, the project is off to a good start in terms of funding, but they could use your help!  Please take a look at the project page and consider donating.  There are, of course, lots of perks to be had, including tickets to the movie and more!
