How an episode of ’Chopped’ led to a fix for future particle accelerators
Bob Zwaska, a scientist at the UChicago-affiliated Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory , was watching a contestant on the cooking show Chopped spin sugar for their dessert when he realized the same principle might be applicable to accelerator targets. The technique he spun out of the idea could hugely boost the power at which future particle accelerators could operate-helping us unlock the secrets of how our universe is built.
