Particle Fever with Special Guests

Join us July 6 to celebrate one of the greatest achievements in scientific history!

In July 2012 particle physicists at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in Geneva, Switzerland, announced the discovery of the Higgs Boson, predicted half a century earlier.

In celebration of this major anniversary, the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, Department of Physics and Astronomy will host a free event at Central Cinema on July 6th, featuring a screening of Particle Fever, the award-winning documentary about this discovery. There will also be a panel discussion with LHC physicists and an opportunity to ask your particle physics questions! All ages are invited.

The event is free but registration is required. Some seats will be available for walk-ups.
