"The Higgs boson. The God Particle?"
This will be a very exciting talk on one of the most fundamentally important discoveries in elementary particle physics. Heather will introduce the complex experiments that we use to study this particle and explain how we actually go about measuring its properties. She will also review what we currently know and don't know about the Higgs Boson, while focussing on some of its weird features. We'll conclude with a short discussion about what the Higgs boson might tell us about the future of the universe.

Dates to be determined
EAS partners with East Bay schools,
libraries, Scouting groups, and S.T.E.M organizers for evening star
parties and other Outreach events. Our experienced astronomy volunteers
bring out their telescopes and other equipment, sharing close-up
views of planets, star clusters, nebulae and galaxies. We seek to
provide a unique and inspiring experience of the night sky!
