Physics Department Colloquium
LHC reloaded
Time: 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm
Place: 2103 Chamberlin Hall
Speaker: Steve Nahn, Fermilab
Abstract: In all the turmoil of the recent past, a milestone quietly slipped by - 10 years of running the Large Hadron Collider. After a quick primer in the nuts and bolts of Energy Frontier physics, I'll take a brief look at what's been done in those ten years, and then turn to the future and how we're preparing for it. As it turns out, there is still much to explore.
