Description
The highly successful Public Forum Session of the Tenth Hawaii Conference in High Energy Physics was held in Kennedy Theater, and there were about 500 attendees, including three State of Hawaii representatives. Generous community support provided a free lunch as well as refreshments during the coffee break. Panelists included Peter Carruthers, Karl Berkelman, James Bjorken, James Cronin, Richard Dalitz, Val Fitch, Leon Lederman, Yuval Ne'eman, and Samuel C.C. Ting. Part II of the panel discussion also includes questions solicited from the audience, and these are also excellent. Where are the women? What is the most important problem in physics? Do you have to be smart to go into physics? Is creativity in science like that in art? The video is a time machine that takes us back 30 years and offers a snapshot of physicists' thoughts and expections for the future at that time. Have we come as far as expected?
