Speakers: Dr Helen Heath

For the past 15 years Dr Helen Heath (University of Bristol) has been involved in the construction of part of the CMS experiment which is now studying collisions of protons at the Large Hadron Collider. As the Large Hadron Collider improves in performance we are retracing the history of particle physics and our understanding of the fundamental constituents of matter; effectively rediscovering some old friends.
In the next STFC Talking Science event in Swindon, co-hosted the the IOP South West Branch, Dr Heath will discuss complexity of the detectors needed to study the fundamental particles, show some of the latest events and discuss what might be to come.
Talking Science is a series of popular science lectures that take place around STFC sites across the country. They offer a chance to hear about and discuss some of the hottest areas of science with some of the leading experts. You don't need to be an expert or even a scientist to come, they're aimed at everyone.
Attendance is free and non-members are welcome but places must be booked in advance by calling 01793 442 092 or online at http://www.stfc.ac.uk/Public+and+Schools/13794.aspx
