BSA Distinguished Lecture

"Research at CERN - From the Highest Energies to the Smallest Particles"

Presented by Rolf-Dieter Heuer, Director-General, CERN, Switzerland

Wednesday, May 1, 2013, 5:30 pm — Berkner Hall Auditorium

With the start of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN, particle physics entered a new era. The LHC will provide a deeper understanding of the universe and the insights gained could change our view of the world, and the talk will present some of the reasons for the excitement surrounding the LHC. The LHC is expected to yield insights into the origin of mass, the nature of dark matter and into many other key questions. This lecture will address the exciting physics prospects offered by the LHC, present first results, in particular the recent discovery of a new 'Higgs-like' Boson, and also a look forward.

Hosted by: Peter Wanderer
