The Mystery of Matter: Into the Atom (1910-1960) Wednesday, 12:15 to 1:15PM Naomi Lane Room
Mystery of Matter: Search For the Elements shows us not only what these scientific explorers discovered but also how, using Broadway-caliber actors to reveal the creative process through the scientists’ own words, and conveying their landmark discoveries through re-enactments shot with working replicas of their original lab equipment.
Caught up in the race to discover the atom’s internal parts, Harry Moseley uses newly discovered X-rays to put the Periodic Table in a whole new light. Glenn Seaborg creates a new element — plutonium — that changes the world forever. PBS (60 min.)
