RWTH: The CERN, the RWTH and the origin of the crowd

The discovery of the Higgs particle on July 4, 2012 at the major research institute CERN was a scientific sensation. The physics world celebrated the success of a sometimes adventurous search spanning almost 50 years. Exactly ten years later, events are held throughout Germany that address the discovery of the Higgs particle, its importance and the work that has been going on since then. At the RWTH Aachen University, the physics department invites you to an exhibition with lectures and discussions under the heading “10 years of Higgs – CERN, the RWTH and the origin of the masses”.

On Monday, July 4th, the evening begins at 7 p.m. in the foyer of the CARL lecture hall center, Classenstraße 11, with an exhibition. From 8 p.m. in lecture hall H02, RWTH professors Robert Harlander, Lutz Feld and Johannes Erdmann will present various aspects of the Illuminate Higgs discovery. The lectures and the subsequent discussion will be moderated by her colleague Professor Thomas Hebbeker. Professor Alexander Schmidt (all RWTH Aachen University) is responsible for the organization.
