STEP PI Explains "Why perform these experiments in Space?" to Public Forum at COSPAR

Francis Everitt of Stanford University, Principal Investigator on the Satellite Test of the Equivalence Principle (STEP), presented a public lecture on Fundamental Physics in Space at the COSPAR Meeting in Warsaw. His lecture covered a wide range of Fundamental Physics experiments: Gravitational Physics (ranging experiments, GP-A, GP-B, STEP, LISA), Elementary Particle Physics (AMS), Condensed Matter Physics (Lambda Point, CHeX, DYNAMX), and Laser Cooling Experiments (cold atom clocks, especially PHARAO and ACES, and Bose-Einstein Condensation). This whirlwind tour of space experiments to a public forum explored the range of ways in which space helps to perform fundamental physics experiments.
