The St John’s Suite at the White Hart, Salisbury, SP1 2SD

Speakers: Dr Lucia Hosekova, National Oceanography Centre

Have you wondered how the Higgs boson ‘gives mass’ to everything around us? What does its discovery mean, and is it a reason to celebrate? Why are symmetries important in particle physics, and why are some of them broken with the help of Mexican hats? What are the famous Feynman diagrams, and why are some of them called penguins? What discoveries can LHC bring in its second run, and are there any plans for future colliders? Join us, and discover the fascinating world of quantum fields, colours and flavours, beautiful and charming quarks and time-travelling birds.

Coffee and tea from 7.00pm
Talk starts at 7.30pm

Event type: Lecture/Talk
