Astrophysicist Dr. Alex Filippenko is addicted to watching total solar eclipses across the globe. He spoke to local high school students for KDNK’s Radio Physics last month. Here is a clip about why he will be inside the Path of Totality next week. The full program is available here.

Theoretical physicist Paul Ginsparg is a professor at Cornell University and a fellow of the MacArthur Foundation, who created arXiv, a computer-based system for physicists and other scientists to communicate their research results.

Markus Luty is a physicist at University of California/Davis with a focus on theoretical particle physics and cosmology.  His current research is driven by the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva, Switzerland.

Jörg Schmalian is the head of the Institute for Theory of Condensed Matter at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology where he leads a research group working on strongly correlated electron systems and complex quantum matter interested in understanding new materials with novel electric, optic, magnetic or thermal properties. Before moving to Germany, he was a full professor at Iowa State University and Senior Scientist at the Department of Energy Ames Laboratory. On this month's show, he talks to students from local high schools.
