Podcast: The Timekeepers Of India

Whether or not time was present before the Big Bang, it exists in our universe - we have simply invented a way to measure it, which is through seconds, hours and years. So, the question that then arises is who sets the time? This episode of The Intersection takes you to the National Physics Laboratory in New Delhi, to find out just that.

Notes On The Intersection: Neutrinos

Physics works in a strange manner. In order to understand the mysteries and complexities of our vast universe, you often have to enter tiny underground holes to study matter. This is exactly what a group of scientists aim to do with the Indian-based Neutrino Observatory (INO). The observatory, first proposed in 2001, aims to study neutrinos, which are fundamental particles that we have a lot to find out about.
