Public (open to all)

The Norfolk Cambridge Society invites you to its fifth lecture, from Professor Andy Parker, a Professor of High Energy Physics at the University of Cambridge, who will be speaking on Higgs Bosons, Black Holes and the Structure of Space: News from the Frontiers of Physics and the Large Hadron Collider.

Professor Parker will discuss recent work at the Large Hadron Collider, in particular, the significance of the Higgs boson discovery and why it overturns millennia of human thought about the nature of matter. He will also provide insights on his recent work, looking for black holes in our data on the universe, including why the possibility that a black hole could be created in the laboratory caused a stir in the media and how it could lead us to discover a universe with hidden dimensions and parallel worlds.

Apparently, no knowledge of equations is needed to understand the talk.
