The Universe before, during, and after the Higgs: Where are we going?

March 13, 2014

Who: Thomas Ryttov (CP3-Origins)
When: Thursday, March 13, 2014 at 19:00
Where: U46

Open star cluster and nebula NGC 3603 by Hubble Space Telescope (ACS).Today at 19, Thomas Ryttov gives a public talk arranged by The Danish Youth Association of Science – UNF-Odense.

Our description of the world at subatomic scales relies on Einstein’s special relativity theory and quantum mechanics. Using these, we can with great accuracy describe the elementary particles and even predict the existence of the Higgs particle. During the talk you’ll hear how we have arrived at this point and where we are heading. Is it really true that the microscopic world has been completely uncovered? Or can we expect further discoveries about the building blocks of nature any time soon?

Slightly more information on the talk can be found on the UNF website (in Danish).
