The discovery of the Higgs Boson: one step closer to understanding the beginning of the universe
Thursday, November 1, 2012 from 7:30 PM to 9:00 PM (PDT)
This summer marked one of the most important events in the history of particle physics -- the discovery of the Higgs boson. Join the UW Physics department on Thursday, Nov. 1, at the University of Washington's Kane Hall for a public discussion about the Higgs boson and its significance.
- Presentation by UW professor Anna Goussiou: What is the Higgs boson? How does it impact our understanding of the universe, especially in its smallest dimensions? How did scientists at the CERN proton collider find something so small?
- Audience Q&A
Event starts at 7:30pm in UW's Kane Hall, room 130. Doors open at 7:00pm.
This event is free, and open to all ages and background levels.
