The Large Hadron Collider and the Higgs boson: Latest news from the energy frontier
The Large Hadron Collider at CERN is using proton-proton collisions to explore physics at higher energies than ever before. This is the region where the weak and electromagnetic forces unify, where mass originates, and where a new particle - looking very much like the Higgs boson - has just been found. The talk will give an account of the discovery and an update on progress since.
Tea/coffee at 6pm.
