SCIPP Public Lecture on Particle Physics and Cosmology
Join the Santa Cruz Institute for Particle Physics (SCIPP) for a lively discussion of cutting-edge topics in particle physics and cosmology, and meet some of the people who make it possible:
1) Prof. Abraham Seiden will talk about the recent Higgs Boson discovery at CERN
2) Prof. Joel Primack will talk about his work on dark matter, dark energy, the formation of galaxies, and the evolution of the Universe.
After their brief introductory overviews, they will be joined by Prof. Howard Haber and other SCIPPers for an extended Q&A session. Bring your questions and your curiosity!
For more than 35 years, SCIPP students, faculty, and staff have been involved in world-leading research projects, including the recent discovery of the Higgs Boson. SCIPP's primary focus is experimental and theoretical particle physics and particle astrophysics, including the development of technologies needed to advance that research, and SCIPP personnel have also pioneered the application of those technologies to enable breakthroughs in other areas, such as neuroscience and biomedicine. Come for a mind-expanding exploration of the field, followed by refreshments.
