Dr. Lincoln, Senior Scientist at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory & author, discusses the recent announcement of a huge new advance in the search for the Higgs Boson and what it means for humanity. Dr. Lincoln's primary research interest is the search for subatomic particles smaller than quarks and he has co-authored hundreds of scientific papers and has lectured in North America, Europe and Asia. He is a strong proponent of bringing the physics frontier to a lay audience. He is the author of Understanding the Universe: From Quarks to the Cosmos and The Quantum Frontier: The Large Hadron Collider. Sandra Kobrin, journalist and author, discusses the book she co-authored with Gloria Killian, "Full Circle" which tells the story of Gloria Killian, an innocent woman framed and convicted of a murder she had nothing to do with and despite the fact that many of the authorities were full aware of the huge irregularities and lies that ran through her case and provided more than enough evidence to cause reasonable doubt about her guilt and even proved her innocence. Gloria did 18 years in prison before she was able to fight her way out. Gloria's story is also a compelling exposure of the conditions faced by women in prison.
