Event Description

Find out how physics is about to change thanks to the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) going online in Europe. Participating UO physics professors (Jim Brau, Graham Kribs and Eric Torrence) will detail in accessible language and appealing visuals how high-energy physics soon will be exploring how, as Brau says, "our very understanding of matter and energy, space and time will be transformed by the LHC."

This public UO event occurs just two days after scientists inject and send the first particle beam around the 17-mile-long (and round) underground LHC -- officially ushering in a new frontier in particle physics. Audience questions will be welcomed after the presentation!
