Join Higgs@10 watch party at WSU

In celebration of the 10th anniversary of Higgs boson discovery, Wichita’s State’s High Energy Physics (HEP) Theory Group will host a watch party featuring live video coverage of the national celebration Higgs@10 at 11 a.m. today, June 30 at 262 Rhatigan Student Center.

The Higgs discovery on July 4, 2012, at the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva, Switzerland, was a remarkable milestone in the history of Experimental and Theoretical Particle Physics.

Dr. Terrance Figy, Wichita State Department of Physics, Mathematics and Statistics assistant professor and theoretical physicist, has contributed to the modeling of the Higgs boson production. Dr. Nick Solomey, WSU professor of physics, spent seven years at the European Center for Nuclear Research, the Geneva Switzerland-based research facility where the Higgs boson was discovered.

Participants can also watch the event via Zoom.
