Every day, thousands of people around the world get up and go to work in a science lab somewhere. Some make major discoveries leading to huge technological advances while others quietly add to humanity’s knowledge of the world and how it works. The films below provide a glimpse into the work of one such scientist, Dr Tara Shears – a particle physicist at the University of Liverpool. I hope one day to create a dedicated “labreporter” website to include such films from science labs around the world. In fact, I have a much, much, grander vision for this site, one which would revolutionise science communication, no less. But I estimate it would cost tens of thousand of pounds at the very least. If you’d like to fund such a project, please get in touch.
These films were all funded by a grant from The Science and Technology Facilities Council.
