Origins Science Scholars Program series: “What’s left to learn from particle accelerators?”

Presented by the Laura and Alvin Siegal Lifelong Learning Program, the Origins Science Scholars Program series engages community members with one another and with leading scholars to investigate rapidly developing areas of origins science. Each evening begins with a presentation by a world-class researcher, followed by complimentary dinner and open discussion among all the participants.

Glenn StarkmanGlenn Starkman, Distinguished University Professor and director of the Institute for the Science of Origins, will open the series with a talk titled “What’s left to learn from particle accelerators?”

It will be held on Tuesday, Oct. 24, at 5:30 p.m. in the Cleveland Museum of Natural History.

Parking will be available.

Topic details

What’s left to learn from particle accelerators? For almost 100 years, we have built ever-larger particle accelerators in order to probe shorter and shorter distances with ever-higher energy probes. After the discovery of the Higgs boson at the European Organization for Nuclear Research’s Large Hadron Collider, we have completed the Standard Model of particle physics. What’s left to learn, and can we learn it from even bigger accelerators?
