Description: The Large Hadron Collider at CERN, Geneva, is probably the biggest scientific experiment ever conducted. One of the headline goals is the hunt for the Higgs boson, which is more accurately described as the quest to understand the unification of the weak and electromagnetic forces and the origin of mass – or “electroweak symmetry breaking.” I’ll give the latest news from the experiment – whatever it is by then!

Speaker Bio: Professor Jon Butterworth is head of the Department of Physics and Astronomy at University College London, and a member of the Atlas experiment at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider. Before this, he grew up in Manchester, did his doctorate in Oxford and worked on the HERA electron-proton collider in Hamburg. He also writes the “Life and Physics” blog for the Guardian.
