Science At Work

A rather fascinating video out of Fermilab. In some ways, this is a "propaganda" video, but in other ways, it actually is a very informative look at not only what the Lab does (or will do), but also what "high energy physics" is. The personal angle that is included in the video provides some "emotional" content that the general public can relate to.

Here's the synopsis of the video:

Six days. Three frontiers. One amazing lab. From 2010 to 2012, a film crew followed a group of scientists at the Department of Energy's Fermilab and filmed them at work and at home. This 40-minute documentary shows the diversity of the people, research and work at Fermilab. Viewers catch a true behind-the-scenes look of the United States' premier particle physics laboratory while scientists explain why their research is important to them and the world.

It's a long, 40-minute video, though. But it is worth sitting down and watching it, especially if you want to learn a bit more about high energy physics here in the US, and what Fermilab did and will do.
