Noted physicist will lead discussion of Higgs boson genesis at UAHuntsville

An example of simulated data modeled for the CMS particle detector on the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN. Here, following a collision of two protons, a Higgs boson is produced which decays into two jets of hadrons and two electrons. The lines represent the possible paths of particles produced by the proton-proton collision in the detector while the energy these particles deposit is shown in blue.

Tom Kibble, a scientist noted for the co-discovery of the Higgs mechanism, and along with Gerald Guralnik and C.R. Hagen, development of the Higgs boson discovery, will speak about the genesis of the Higgs boson discovery next week at The University of Alabama in Huntsville.
