February 7, 2013


Last summer, scientists at the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva, Switzerland, announced the discovery of a new particle that could explain why elementary particles have mass. Listen in to a panel of experts from the University of Chicago, Argonne National Laboratory, and Fermilab to learn why this discovery marks the beginning of a new era in particle physics research.

The Discovery Series is a new public speaker series at the University of Chicago. This biannual series will feature the latest research from the University as well as panel discussions of major scientific advances. Guests will hear the stories behind the science and engage with University experts in Q&A sessions.
