Discuss the Higgs Boson News with Some of the Experts at the Festival!

The world is buzzing from the latest news about the Higgs boson. Last Tuesday, scientists at CERN announced that they have made significant progress towards the search of the Higgs boson. Scientists are confident that the progress made will bring them much closer to the discovery by the end of next year.

The Festival is honored to have The Atlas Experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (New York University), a research group that works at the LHC, as an Exhibitor and Sponsor for the 2012 Expo! The Large Hadron Collider, a gigantic scientific instrument spanning the border between Switzerland and France that lies roughly 100m underground, was used to test the existence of the Higgs boson.

Also, at the Festival, meet Featured Author Lisa Randall, a Physics Professor at Harvard University and author of the best-selling book "Knocking on Heaven's Door: How Physics and Scientific Thinking Illuminate the Universe and the Modern World." So get your questions ready for our experts and read about Lisa Randall's interview discussing the Higgs boson with the New York Times.
