The Large Hadron Collider at CERN has now being running for more than half a year. This is the world’s largest experiment, located near Geneva. It’s a 27km long underground nuclear accelerator and the world’s current most exciting opportunity for new discoveries.

This machine is searching for the elusive Higgs Boson. It is also looking for dark matter, higher dimensions and studying extreme states of matter, that give insight into the origins of the Universe. The LHC can indeed change the face of science. South Africans have a unique once- off opportunity to hear first-hand about the LHC from visiting CERN scientists. Dr Assamagan leads the ATLAS search for the Higgs boson and Dr Dabrowski is a leading Applied Physicist preparing for a future even higher energy accelerator to take us to physics way beyond the LHC.

Please join us as they talk about the LHC and beyond, and the astounding experiments that are and will be possible.
