Welcome to the first BYA of the year!
Join us on the 20th of September for a talk by our former MSP professor Sarah Williams!
The Standard Model of Particle Physics, which explains what the elementary particles in the universe are and how they can interact with each other, has been immensely succesful at describing (nearly) all experimental observations in high energy physics. There are missing ingredients from this model, one of these is dark matter. This BYA, lead by Sarah Wiliams, will indroduce the Standard Model and the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). Additionally, it will describe methods used to search for dark matter and summarise some recent results from run-II data-taking.
As always, there will be free admission and snacks are provided!
