Smashing Physics: The LHC and the Higgs Boson
Harrie Massey Lecture Theatre |
25 Gordon Street | London | WC1H 0AY | United Kingdom
Jon Butterworth, is a member of the ATLAS experiment, and professor of physics at UCL, where he is currently head of the Department of Physics & Astronomy. He writes regularly in The Guardian, and his book, Smashing Physics: The Inside Story of the Hunt for the Higgs, was published in May.
The discovery of the Higgs boson by the ATLAS and CMS experiments at CERN's Large Hadron Collider was a very exciting time for physics. But what is a Higgs boson and what does it do? How was it found? And what can we learn from doing science in such a media spotlight?
Jon Butterworth gives his inside account of the start up of the LHC and the hunt for the Higgs.
Booking is recommended but not required. If you have a ticket, it will give you priority access in the unlikely even that the lecture hall is full.
