In 2013 there was huge excitement as scientists announced the discovery of the Higgs boson. But given the uncertainties at the heart of quantum physics and experimental physics, can we really say we discovered it or not? Is this particle real?
Professor Melissa Franklin will talk about her experiences working towards the discovery of the Higgs boson and her work today at the Large Hadron Collider.
Professor Franklin is the Mallinckrodt Professor of Physics at Harvard University. She will be introduced by Marcus du Sautoy, Simonyi Professor for the Public Understanding of Science at the University of Oxford.
