What I learned from watching Through the Wormhole with Morgan Freeman

The following are posts I did on Twitter after watching an episode of Through the Wormhole with Morgan Freeman.  I rearranged the Twitter posts so they can be understood better.

  1. I learned something today watching Through the Wormhole with Morgan Freeman in the episode What Are We Made Of?. http://bit.ly/c35QzD 2:19 PM Aug 3rd via bitly
  2. What Are We Made Of? Dig inside the atom and you’ll find tiny particles held together in a sea of empty space. #higgs Tuesday, August 03, 2010 2:23:07 PM via web
  3. Dig even deeper and you’ll find everything is made of tiny packets of energy born in a cosmic furnaces. #Higgs Tuesday, August 03, 2010
  4. Energy that cools down and dragged through a mysterious force called #Higgs http://bit.ly/bJKfB8 Tuesday, August 03, 2010 2:24:18 PM via bitly
  5. The energy that is dragged through the #Higgs field clumps together to form everything that we call matter. Tuesday, August 03, 2010 2:24:53 PM via web
  6. Matter is made up of particles called atoms. Atoms are comprised of a nucleus consisting of a proton & neutron with an electron orbiting it. Tuesday, August 03, 2010 2:25:30 PM via web
  7. Inside the nucleus of an atoms are particles called quarks. Tuesday, August 03, 2010 2:25:42 PM via web
  8. Quarks are known as elementary particles, a particle not known to have substructure. It is not known to be made up of smaller particles. Tuesday, August 03, 2010 2:26:27 PM via web
  9. The CERN particle accelerator in Geneva, Switzerland is trying to find evidence of the #Higgs field http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CERN Tuesday, August 03, 2010 2:30:31 PM via web
  10. Now you know what matter is made up of. Simple. If confused by this tweet, see earlier posts. Tuesday, August 03, 2010 2:33:00 PM via web
