Details

NOTE: I am not sure I can make this. Let me know if you would be willing to organize or co-organize this. Otherwise, there are a few other meetup groups who are going to this event.

I understand that the place tends to get packed, so we should probably aim to get there between 5 and 5:30

The Higgs boson is one of the biggest, most influential discoveries of the last decade, important enough that it resulted in an almost instant Nobel prize. But what’s it all about? How does it work? And what does it mean for a particle to “create mass”? If you’ve been feeling confused at cocktail parties, Dave Goldberg will give you a half hour primer on how the universe works to set you straight.
