The Higgs Boson and Our Life

The Higgs Boson and Our Life - 04/08/[masked]:00 PM
Stanford University, Stanford
On 4 July 2012, the ATLAS and CMS experiments operating at the CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC) announced the discovery of a new particle compatible with the Higgs boson (hunted for almost 50 years), which is a crucial piece for our understanding of fundamental physics and thus the structure and evolution of the universe. This lecture describes the unprecedented instruments and challenges that have allowed such an accomplishment, the physics meaning and relevance of this discovery, and the implications for our day to day life.

Speaker: Dr. Fabiola Gianotti, CERN

Also: The Higgs Boson and Other Recent Results from ATLAS - 04/09/[masked]:15 PM Stanford University, Palo Alto

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.
