From sub-atomic neutrino physics to traditional Indigineous lifestyle philosophy – there are many ways of knowing the universe. This week, Terra Informa reporters interview Isaac Twin, Josh Littlechild, Dr. Art MacDonald and Dr. Aksel Hallin, exploring ways of understanding nature uncommon to the average Joe.
Caring for Our Homefires
How does Indigenous traditional living relate to sustainable living? Terra Informer Alex Wolf talks with Isaac Twin and Josh Littlechild, delving into the experience of traditional Indigenous living and the interconnection with ecological footprints.
Turns Out, Neutrinos Shapeshift
Break everything into its smallest constituents and you get atoms. Break it down even further and you get a cornucopia of neutrons, protons, electrons, neutrinos, quarks, and so on. By studying these particles, we develop a deeper understanding of the universe.
In 2015, a team of scientists working in the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory won the Nobel prize for discovering that neutrinos shift between different states, challenging the standard model of elementary particle physics.
