Professor Mark Lancaster, High Energy Physics, UCL

The discovery of a Higgs-like boson at CERN's Large Hadron Collider was the culmination of over 30 years effort to build the world's largest experiments and vindicated a theory almost 50 years old. A triumph of human endeavour and this "success" is the side of particle physics most apparent to the public. However the Higgs is only a small, but significant, part of the story and lurking beneath this are a mass of unanswered questions: notably that we have no explanation for what 95% of the universe is made of and how more than one galaxy was able to form. I'll review what we've learnt in the last 10 years in particle physics and what we are planning to do next to answer the question: "What follows the Higgs?"
