One of the greatest achievements in scientific history occurred 10 years ago this July. In 2012, particle physicists at the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva, Switzerland announced the discovery of the Higgs Boson, predicted half a century earlier.

In celebration of this major anniversary, the UT Department of Physics and Astronomy will host a free event at Central Cinema on July 6th, featuring a screening of the award-winning documentary Particle Fever (2013) about this discovery, a panel discussion with LHC physicists, and an opportunity to ask your particle physics questions.

When is it? Where? How do I save a seat?

When: Wednesday, July 6, at 7 pm

Where: Central Cinema

What: Particle Fever with Special Guests
Free Screening of Particle Fever and Panel Discussion with Particle Physicists from UT and ORNL
