ORNL’s “Extreme Science” trailer will show you how researchers explore the biggest and smallest systems in the Universe! As you enter the trailer you can watch a star explode, peer into the depths of a black hole, and learn how the sun works… Then pass through a portal to explore how the elements cooked up inside of stars are studied and manipulated. How are batteries made? What are nanomaterials and how can they change our life? How can we “sniff” out traces of chemicals? How do we use chemistry to make more slippery oil? See the world’s smallest fidget spinners! Look at a ladybug’s wing under an optical microscope! Become a battery! We show you how we combine physics, chemistry, and materials science to learn about the universe and make your life better!
