The Higgs and Hereafter

at Longway Planetarium

The Higgs and Hereafter With special guest: James Alsup Date: Thursday, April 25 Time: Begins at 6:00pm with Q&A afterward Ages: For ages 10 and older Fee: Free, compliments of the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation Last year the world's largest particle accelerator, the Large Hadron Collider, announced the discovery of a new particle, the Higgs Boson. It was by many accounts considered to be one of the most exciting, and excruciating, scientific findings in the history of humankind. The idea of particle physics has since been flung into television mainstream, showing up in news headlines and shows like the Big Bang Theory. We will discuss what the fuss was all about and try to answer why, when, how, and what's next for the elusive particle.
