  • A Big Bang Machine on the Moon

    Jun 29th, 2018
    6:00pm - 7:30pm
    10 per person

    When: Friday, June 29, 2018 | 6PM–7:30PM
    Where: Mercury Meeting Room

    The Large Hadron Collider at CERN switched on in 2015, colliding protons at the highest energy ever used for such a purpose and re-creating the conditions of the universe as they were just a fraction of a second after the Big Bang. What physicists have learned so far is that our universe seems to be extremely odd.

    To know exactly how odd it is we need to build a bigger collider to get even closer to the moment of the Big Bang. But how big is big enough? Join particle physicist James Beacham as he explores what we would likely learn from a hadron collider around the moon, dark matter, the Higgs boson, and whether we live in a multiverse — and what all of this means for society.

    What to Expect:

    • The Museum of Life and Science presents James Beacham in a 50-minute,TED-style talk with a Q&A session afterwards.
    • Beer, wine, and light refreshments will be available. 

    Join us for this unique chance to dig deep into work that lies on the bleeding edge of scientific discovery and technology
