Live Chat: The Future of Physics
12 February 2013 2:30 pm
See below for the live video feed.
After a 50-year search, physicists finally found the Higgs boson. So what are they going to do now? Is there anything left to learn about the particles and forces we know about? Which experiments have the best chance of finding new physics? How close are we to solving the mysteries of dark matter and dark energy? And what happens if we don’t find anything new?
Tune in at 3 p.m. EST on Friday, 15 February, for a live Google+ Hangout about the future of physics with Massachusetts Institute of Technology neutrino maven Janet Conrad and Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory theorist Chris Quigg, live from the AAAS meeting in Boston. Have questions for the guests? Leave them in the comment box below and we'll address them during the Hangout. The full video will be archived on this page.
