1:00 PM - 2:50 PM Petroleum: Modern World's Double-Edged Sword
FLEX # 156
Human beings have long noticed pools of dark viscous fluid bubbling up from the ground. Enterprising traders ladled these fluids to sell for caulking, lubrication, and even medicine. Since these pools occur sporadically, exploitation was always a somewhat irregular venture. However, with the advent of the Industrial Revolution, indoor lighting became increasingly necessary and desirable. Beginning about 1750, whale oil was being used for indoor lighting since it burns with very little soot. A factory owner, for example, could get many more hours of productive work from his peons if they had a reliable source of light in which to toil, so whale oil became a necessary competitive component. By the mid-nineteenth century, however, whalers found themselves trekking farther each year in search of their blubbery prey. American chemist, Benjamin Silliman, discovered in 1859 that petroleum (the new name for those bubbling pools) contained kerosene, a fuel that also burns with very little smoke. Using a process developed by moonshiners and perfected by his father, Silliman extracted not only kerosene but a whole host of other fluids and even solids from this strange dark liquid. The petroleum industry was born, and it has since fueled the development of our modern world.

9:00 AM - 10:50 AM Positron Emission Tomography (PET): Detecting Cancer Early
FLEX # 158
Fifty years ago, a cancer diagnosis was very often a death sentence for the patient because the primitive detection techniques then in use simply couldn’t find cancer until it was too late. Today, many cancers are detectable very early on using quite sophisticated techniques. One of the most versatile is called Positron Emission Tomography (PET). This technique uses a particular anti-matter radioactive decay mode to detect the presence of very small cancer clusters. It is being used successfully to detect brain, cervix, prostate, lung, and thyroid cancers as well as colorectal, pancreatic, lymphatic, and melanoma tumors. It is even being used to examine heart tissue to assess damage from coronary artery disease and it can image the brain to track the progression of ailments like Alzheimer’s disease. This workshop will give an overview of PET physics and the technology used to provide physicians with informative images. We’ll examine the radiation dose a patient typically receives, how the radioactive isotopes are prepared in a medical center, and how the body’s metabolic processes facilitate their use. We will also examine what the future holds for this amazing and painless technique. Who knows…given the prevalence of cancer and our increasingly long life spans, this workshop might provide a glimpse into your personal medical future. No background is needed.

We need to understand scale to navigate a world where big numbers and large concepts are involved in many critical topics. Taking something that seems esoteric and making it relatable to our everyday experiences is a powerful tool. In this workshop, we will look at different techniques to grasp the seemingly ungraspable and expand our minds so we can understand the grand scale of nature’s wonders.
