The World According to Higgs (sold out)

By Dr. Chris Quigg, Fermilab.

International scientific teams have observed a new particle that closely resembles the long-sought Higgs boson. Why did thousands of physicists devote decades to the hunt, and how does the discovery advance our understanding of nature?

Fermilab theorist Chris Quigg introduced the Auditorium Lecture audience to the quest for the Higgs boson in 1987, and is delighted to be able report on the dramatic conclusion. Quigg joined the Fermilab staff in 1974 and led the Theoretical Physics Department for a decade during its formative years. He shared the American Physical Society's J. J. Sakurai Prize for outstanding achievements in particle theory and is a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the American Physical Society. When not contemplating Nature's secrets, he can be found hiking Europe's long-distance trails.

Note: ticket price is $7.

    Lecture was nice but we didn't realize that we had to buy the tickets on fermilab's site in addition to rsvp'ing in meetup so when we got there there were no seats for us and we had to go in another room and listen from there... kind of a bummer but still learned a lot.

    Any plans to meet before the lecture?

    April 11, 2013

    • Miguel A

      I am usually there early with some sort of Meetup sign or badge, so feel free to say hello if you see me (blue shirt, Meetup badge..., that's me). Another possibility is to meet *after* the lecture for a while in the reception area to the left of the refreshment area.

    What's the best way to get tickets?

    March 29, 2013

    • Miguel A

      One way is to purchase tickets at the entrance right before the talk, but I prefer to buy in advance just in case they sell out. This page explains all the details about the various ways to get tickets - http://www.fnal.gov/c...­
