Another Look at Particle Physics

This program is sold out

Marianne Ryan, Artist
Richard Breedon, Physicist

Our understanding of the universe is about to change. The Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the world’s largest particle accelerator, is being used by physicists at CERN near Geneva, Switzerland, to discover the Higgs boson, which some have referred to as the God particle, since it is required for particles to have mass. Breedon, a physicist on the CMS experiment at CERN, will speak about what discoveries might be expected from experiments at the LHC. Ryan, an artist, privileged to have twice toured one of the LHC experiments both before and after it was lowered underground, speaks of these life-changing visits, and her response as an artist.
