Thinking and drinking. That is the unlikely goal of our meeting. Each month we invite a speaker to talk about an area of belief and to invite critical debate. We encourage skeptical thought and we enjoy challenging discussions.

Jon Butterworth: Smashing Physics - News from the energy frontier

  • Jon Butterworth: Smashing Physics - News from the energy frontier
  • 3 June 2014

    The discovery of the Higgs boson made headlines around the world. Two scientists, Peter Higgs and François Englert, whose theories predicted its existence, shared a Nobel Prize. The discovery was the culmination of the largest experiment ever run, the ATLAS and CMS experiments at CERN's Large Hadron Collider. But what really is a Higgs boson and what does it do? How was it found? And what will the LHC do next? Jon Butterworth, a leading member of the ATLAS experiment, will talk about all this and more.

    Professor Jon Butterworth is also Head of the Department of Physics & Astronomy at UCL, and writes for the Guardian.
