Part of Amherst Cinemas Science On Screen Film Series
With panel discussion by UMASS physicists involved in the Large
Hadron Collider project
*** Physics Nobel Laureate Sheldon Glashow will also be a panelist
Wednesday, October 1 at 7pm
~ Landmark films with lively introductions by renowned scientists ~
For the first time, a film gives audiences a front row seat to a
significant and inspiring scientific breakthrough as it happens.
Particle Fever follows six brilliant scientists during the launch of
the Large Hadron Collider, marking the start-up of the biggest and
most expensive experiment in the history of the planet. As they seek
to unravel the mysteries of the universe, 10,000 scientists from over
100 countries join forces in pursuit of a single goal: to recreate
conditions that existed just moments after the Big Bang and find the
Higgs boson particle, a key component to explain the origin of all
On Wednesday October 1 at 7pm, Amherst Cinema screens Particle Fever
as part of the ongoing Science on Screen series.
Tickets at the Amherst Cinema box office, or online
www.amherstcinema.org. Regular admission.
Three University of Massachusetts physicists, Carlo Dallipiccola,
Stephane Willocq, and Ben Brau join us to give expert insight into
the question: What can the Large Hadron Collider and the Higgs boson
tell us about the universe?
Carlo Dallapiccola is a Professor of Physics at the University of
Massachusetts, Amherst, and member of the ATLAS collaboration at the
Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland.
Stephane Willocq is a Professor of Physics at the University of
Massachusetts, Amherst. His research interests are in the area of
searches for new phenomena at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN in
Geneva, Switzerland. He has been a member of the ATLAS experiment for
the past ten years and is currently convening the ATLAS Exotics
Ben Brau is an Assistant Professor of Physics at the University of
Massachusetts, Amherst, and is a member of the ATLAS collaboration at
the Large Hadron Collider at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland. His
research focuses on precision measurements of known phenomena, and a
search for the possible existence of a hidden sector of particles
which could lead to an explanation of dark matter.
Director Mark Levinson (2013) 99 mins. NR.
