A Natural Disaster!”
A lecture by Kyle Cranmer
New York University
The discovery of the Higgs boson was a triumph for humanity and was celebrated by physicists around the world. Its discovery settles a long-standing mystery about the origin of mass and completes a spectacularly successful theory called the Standard Model. However, we know that this theory is not the end of the story and great questions remain: What is dark matter? Why does matter dominate over anti-matter? The Higgs itself is at the heart of a profound question that may point to deep new principles and even has some scientists considering a radical change to our conception of the Universe.
Free, fun, and for the general public.
