Or "How I discovered the Higgs Boson, with the help of 7,000 colleagues". The talk describes why we need the Higgs boson, to complete the Standard Model of Particle Physics (the Standard Model is described for the uninitiated). It also describes how the experiments at CERN's Large Hadron Collider have recently produced evidence for what is probably the Higgs boson.

Refreshments available from 19:00.
