Speakers: Professor Tara Shears, University of Liverpool/CERN
You might think that now the Higgs boson has been discovered, there’s nothing left for particle physics to find out. You might even agree with the Guardian’s view that physics has hit the buffers. Here you will see why that’s not true at all, how CERN’s LHC is helping us to find out more, and what the real mysteries are that we are still trying to solve, so you can judge for yourself how close to the buffers physics actually is.
Event type: Lecture/Talk
Organised by: Institute of Physics Merseyside Branch
