How did a curious Bronx Science student go from fiddling with a basement chemistry set to his own Nobel Laureate dinner, talking with a princess about sculling? What’s the best way to educate the general public about nuclear physics? And just what's the problem with Superstring theory?
In the premiere episode of Vernam’s Cipher, AT&T Chief Security Officer Ed Amoroso and Nobel Laureate Sheldon Glashow have a wide-ranging discussion about the discovery that won the Nobel Prize, growing up in New York, the state of physics today, and how today’s kids might be better off if they were just allowed to blow up more stuff.
