This hall holds 450 people - and at least 100 were turned away at the door.

EUGENE, Ore. - Hundreds of people flocked to the University of Oregon this week to learn about physics.

At the Physics Slam on Tuesday night, a panel of physicists competed to explain the most complicated physics terms - and make them easy to understand.

Sound exciting? Well, 100 people were turned away because there wasn't enough space for the audience in a room that seats 450 people.

Presentations were judged by applause.

Brian Foster gave the clearest and most entertaining explanation and walked away as the champion of this physics contest.
