Large Hadron Collider and the Higgs boson

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.

Talk Begins 6.30pm.

More tea/coffee afterwards.

    Sorry, thought I could manoeuvre my diary commitments to be free, but I can't. Really interested in this topic, so most disappointed I cannot come.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
