This is your chance (and your students) to take part in some research for the New Scientist on the phenomenon of remote viewing (the alleged ability to psychically identify a distant location). And take part in the world’s first scientific study via twitter. The experiment is organised by the fab Richard Wiseman who has an impressive record of serious research on anomalistic psychology. For more information have a look here. Essentially Richard will be conducting trials on Tues, Wed, Thurs and Fri of this week at 3pm (UK time). To join in, all you have to do is join his twitter stream here. PS Richard is talking at the Science and Pseudoscience conference next November run by Southwest Conferences, details here. Last year this conference was a huge success – comments included ‘I never thought science could be this much fun’.
