For one evening only the UCD Physics Society has the pleasure of hosting the always wonderful Prof. Jon Butterworth. As the head of Physics and Astronomy at University College London and an active physicist at CERN’s ATLAS experiment, this event will surely not want to be missed by any physics enthusiast! This event is open to members of the general public. Light refreshments will be given after the event in the UCD clubhouse.
Professor Butterworth will talk about what we have learned from the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, including the discovery of the Higgs boson and latest exciting developments. Jon Butterworth is professor of physics at UCL and a member of the ATLAS collaboration at CERN. He was awarded the Chadwick medal of the Institute of Physics in 2013 for his work in particle physics. He writes the "Life & Physics" blog for the Guardian and his book "Smashing Physics" was shortlisted for the Royal Society Winton Science book prize in 2015.
