Presented by Dr. Philip Baringer, University of Kansas We’ve all learned about atoms and how they are made up of protons, neutrons and electrons. But if you smash a proton, what’s inside? How can understanding something so small help explain the creation of the universe? In 2012, the Higgs Boson was discovered by doing experiments at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). But why is this subatomic particle important and how was it found? Come hear Dr. Philip Baringer, an experimental particle physicist working at the LHC, as he explains this and other subatomic particles. Listen to how scientists crash protons into each other at even higher speeds searching for more information about the very fabric of our universe. All SSS are first come, first serve. Due to Fire Code, no more than 440 people are allowed in the Extreme Screen Theatre. Please plan accordingly, as most all of the seminars fill up before 9 am – thank you!
