Understanding the Universe through Particle Physics
Akhtar Mahmood, Bellarmine U
Particle accelerators can recreate the hot, dense conditions which existed in the first microsecond after the Big Bang. At that point, subatomic particles called quarks were creating protons and neutrons. Other subatomic particles called neutrinos survived until today, and could play a pivotal role in the fate of the universe. Come hear the latest news with Akhtar Mahmood. We will meet at Monnik Beer Co., 1036 E Burnett Ave, Louisville KY 40217 at 7pm in the Upper Room.
