"God Particle" Researcher To Discuss High Energy Physics At UNF

Image Editor

One of the researchers who worked to discover the so-called "God particle" will be at the University of North Florida tonight for what is being billed as "a night of high energy physics."

Massachusetts of Technology physicist Dr. Marcus Klute will be at UNF on Tuesday night to discuss his research at the renowned CERN Large Hadron Collider and last year’s groundbreaking discovery of the Higgs boson particle. Dr. Klute joined Melissa Ross for a preview.

Tonight's lecture, sponsored by the UNF chapter of the Society of Physics Students, is scheduled to begin at 5:30 p.m. at the Student Union Auditorium. It is free and open to the public.

In October the Nobel Prize for physics was awarded to Belgian theoretical physicist Francois Englert and British theoretical physicist Peter Higgs, the latter of whom is the namesake of the Higgs boson.
