A Smiling Nobel Scientist.

It was on June 6, 2006 when I've enjoyed a delightful profound and intriguing lecture presented by a scientist that was approaching some of nature's deepest secrets with smiles. I've learned then about the passions of the Nobel Prize winner Frank Wilczek, a Perimeter Institute friend. Some of his passions expressed as: mass without mass, massless building blocks or the music of the void wouldn't make sense without explanations. The simplicity of explanations that followed showed that our visible reality at its deep structure is like a fluctuating lava lamp where something comes out of nothing.

Watching the lecture recently I enjoyed again the comments about the power of mathematics and how physicists think and get excited when there are ways to prove their theories.

After talking about the origins of the ordinary matter (that is only 5% of Universe's matter), feebleness of gravity and LHC promises the audience was treated with the fast motion video presentation of a Nobel Prize banquet (starting at minute 76 of PI video stream).

Here it is for you to enjoy: A Night with Nobel - The Origin of Mass and the Feebleness of Gravity PI lecture.
