The large hadron collider and the Higgs boson

UCL lunch hour lecture

UCL runs a series of public lectures at lunchtime. On Tuesday I gave one of these, about the news from the energy frontier, including the discovery on the fourth of July this year. Here is the recording.

For the past two years, until the end of last month, I was convener of one of the big analysis groups at the ATLAS detector on the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, Geneva. This meant I was travelling a lot. So whenever I was asked to do something in London, I would say “not until October”.

So October has been predictably busy with engagements in the UK, often at UCL. As well as the debate on Monday, I gave one of our well-known public lunch hour lectures on Tuesday this week. We were full, some people were turned away, but it was live streamed and here is the recording in case you’d like to see it.

There’s some overlap of material (especially jokes) with the Royal Institution evening discourse I gave in February. Except at UCL I didn’t have the demonstrations – but I did have a new boson!
