Oxford May Music

The LHC and the Higgs boson

Professor Sir Tejinder Virdee, FRS, Imperial College London

Tickets £3

Concessions £2

Oxford May Music Festival

At the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN, Geneva we can probe our Universe moments after the Big Bang to tackle questions about its origin, evolution and composition. The discovery in July 2012 of the Higgs boson completes the particle content of the standard model of particle physics, a theory that describes our visible universe in exquisite detail. Via the CMS experiment at the LHC, Jim will look into the evolution of our universe from the Big Bang, the fundamental particles and their interactions, and the long journey to the discovery of the Higgs boson.

The talk will also touch upon the societal impact of fundamental scientific research, CERN and the LHC.

A number of free tickets are available for Under 26's - if you wish to book these tickets, please contact Oxford May Music directly on info@oxfordmaymusic.co.uk
