January 28 | 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EST
A Measure of Truth – What the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) teaches us about the universe and ourselves.
In this intriguing cafés, we’ll discuss the field of particle physics and how fundamental scientific research not only improves our understanding of the world we live in, but that it is a key factor in human survival.
