Further details

To great fanfare, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) discovered the Higgs Boson in 2013, running at just half the energy it was planned for. After two years of upgrading, it is now ready to smash protons together at roughly the energy it was always supposed to. With all that power, physicists hope to break current physical theories, explaining the mysteries of dark matter and more. What new things might they find amongst the smashed remains of particles in the LHC? And how do they actually find them?

This lecture is presented by theoretical particle physicist Raymond Volkas from University of Melbourne, and particle physicist Peter Skands from Monash University.

Tickets for RMIT students are only $19, a discount of $10 off the normal ticket price of $29.
