The Higgs

You may have heard that the “Higgs Boson”  is a sort of holy grail for physicists.

And that an international group at the CERN Supercollider think they could have possibly found it.

What you may not know is that some Virginia scientists are playing a key role in this revolutionary research.

We talk with two of them about the latest developments.

Guests:

Bradley B. Cox, Ph.D. - Professor of Physics at the University of Virginia and Head of the U-S Division of the Compact Muon Solenoid [CMS] experiment team at the Large Hadron Collider outside Geneva, Switzerland.

Christopher Neu, Ph.D. - Assistant Professor of Physics at the University of Virginia and member of the Compact Muon Solenoid [CMS] experiment team at the Large Hadron Collider outside Geneva, Switzerland.  For more on particle physics, in addition to the links above Dr. Neu also recommends seeing The Particle Adventure web page.
