Discovery of the Higgs Particle

Special Panel Discussion

After decades of searching, the Higgs particle was finally observed at the Large Hadron Collider. This historic discovery is a tremendous step forward in science. U-M panelists Physics Professors Gordon Kane, Homer Neal, Jay Chapman, Jianming Qian and Aaron Pierce will present experimental and theoretical discussions on:

-Particle physics history of the past half century, and how it relates to the Higgs boson.

-The role of U-M in experiments to unlock the mystery of electroweak symmetry breaking

-Particle physics detector design and construction at U-M

-The Higgs boson discovery with the ATLAS detector at the CERN Large Hadron Collider

-The significance and impact of the Higgs discovery in future particle physics

The physicists will field questions at the panel's conclusion.
