This July marked the 10th anniversary of the discovery of the Higgs boson at CERN by the ATLAS and CMS Collaborations. Imperial played a major role in the associated theoretical developments, as well as the actual discovery and subsequent characterization.
The Higgs boson provides a unique window on to the new physics that we know is needed to explain our cosmos at the most basic level. With this series of talks we seek to celebrate Imperial’s contributions and capture the excitement of discovery, as well as inspiring the next generation to further elucidate the origins of our universe.
