Saltzberg studies high-energy particle physics and high-energy neutrino astronomy, using radio-detection techniques when he's not working as The Big Bang Theory's science consultant.

Every week, Saltzberg attends the show's live taping at the Warner Bros. lot in Burbank, Calif.

He fills in the blanks, as in an episode where Dr. Sheldon Cooper, a puffed-up theoretical physicist, keeps bumming rides from a neighbor.

The scientist got involved with The Big Bang Theory in 2007, when the show was little more than a theoretical construct.

The set designers asked him to show them some real graduate students' apartments, so they could see how young scientists really live.

But he adds that he thinks this sitcom, The Big Bang Theory, is more important than his work in the lab.

"It's hard to fathom, when you think about 20 million viewers on the first showing — and that doesn't include other countries and reruns. »

Authored by

Apple has to pay €13 billion, or about $16 billion, as part of a record-breaking back tax judgment from August 2016.

Now Ireland will collect the penalty, it said on Tuesday, although there's still a chance Apple could get the money back. »

Metabolic and Fatigue Profiles Are Comparable Between Prepubertal Children and Well-Trained Adult Endurance Athletes

Furthermore, the post-exercise recovery kinetics of VO 2 , HR, and [La] in children and endurance athletes were faster than those of untrained men.

To conclude, prepubertal children were observed to be metabolically comparable to well-trained adult endurance athletes, and were thus less fatigable during high-intensity exercise than untrained adults.

Furthermore, it is presumed that untrained adults rely less on oxidative metabolism and therefore fatigue faster during high-intensity exercise than prepubertal children and well-trained adult endurance athletes. »
