Public Talk on Particle Physics  Aug 31, 2019

Exciting Science Group is happy and excited to announce the next Popular Science Talk.

 

Smashing protons - Big Bang, Higgs & dark matter!

(See flyer)

Date: Saturday, August 31, 2019

 

Time: 10:00 - 11:15 am

 

Speaker: Dr. Seema Sharma, Associate Professor (Physics), IISER Pune and member of the CMS experimental collaboration at CERN

 
VenueNew Lecture Hall, Smt Indrani Balan Science Activity Centre, IISER Pune
 
Abstract: The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at the CERN in Geneva is the most powerful accelerator which smashes protons traveling almost at the speed of light. The outcome of these collisions is recorded by giant cameras, like the CMS detector. In this talk, the speaker will explain how LHC and CMS make up the most advanced microscope to study the fundamental building blocks of the universe around us, and help us finding laws of nature governing their interactions.
 
Age Group: Ideally Class 7 - 10. However, we welcome other students to attend.
 
Supported by: IISER Pune, CSIR-NCL, Venture Center, Forbes Foundation, Nag Foundation and Praj Foundation
