John W. Moffat: Cracking The Particle Code of the Universe

Program: 
Host: 
Date: 
Wednesday, January 8, 2014 - 2:30pm

Have they found the Higgs Boson particle at the Large Hadron Collider? If so, it would be one of the greatest scientific discoveries of the last 100 years. But, according to our guest tonight,  we aren’t completely certain yet. Tonight on Inquiry we speak with noted physicist JOHN W. MOFFAT, Professor Emeritus in Physics at the University of Toronto and also Adjunct Professor in physics at the University of Waterloo. His new book CRACKING THE PARTICLE CODE OF THE UNIVERSE: THE HUNT FOR THE HIGGS BOSON is a wonderful up to date overview of the search for this so-called “god particle” and an honest report of how theoretical physics really works. As Moffat writes in his book: “Physics is a brutal business.”
