PSL will host UW-Madison Physics Professor Wesley Smith for a talk on finding the Higgs Boson. The talk will be held at PSL on Oct. 10th, at 11:00 am in the PSL large conference room. Appetizers and beverages will be provided.

PSL was instrumental in the design of the Compact Muon Solenoid of the Large Hadron Collider. The discovery of the Higgs Boson was Science Magazine’s “Breakthrough of the Year” for 2012.
