Interview with Dr. Chang Kee Jung, Research Coordinator with the Long Baseline Neutrino Facility and associated Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment and professor of physics at the State University of New York Stony Brook.

Dr. Chang Kee Jung will deliver a presentation on “What’s Physics Got to do with Sports?” Thursday at 5:45 p.m. at Black Hills State University. His talk will focus on the effects of spinning and non-spinning balls in popular sports, including baseball, football, soccer and volleyball.

Jung says that many spectacular sports feats can be explained using basic physics concepts. Jung was also called upon several times to discuss the “Deflategate” controversy.
