Video: In the shadow of the Higgs
If you're still unsure what all the "Higgsteria" was about, we have a new video for you.
On July 31, SLAC Postdoctoral Fellow Emanuel Strauss presented the SLAC Public Lecture "In the Shadow of the Higgs." In a little over an hour, Strauss guided a capacity crowd in SLAC's Panofsky Auditorium through the relevant principles of particle physics, leading them to and through the massive underground system known as the Large Hadron Collider.
On July 4th, the ATLAS and CMS collaborations unveiled their latest data and announced the discovery of a particle that could very well be the long-sought Higgs. In his talk, Strauss provides context for the worldwide interest and discusses where we go from here.
