Every Child (And Physicist's) Dream Job: Smashing Things Together and Watching What Happens

Visiting scholar Jahred Adelman, PhD, will discuss his work with the Large Hadron Collider.

Jahred Adelman, PhD, an Assistant Professor of Physics at Northern Illinois University, will discuss Switzerland’s Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and his work with ATLAS (A Toroidal LHC ApparatuS), a particle detector experiment that takes pictures of objects emerging from the LHC following their collisions. With these images, physicists can work to reconstruct the process behind the atom-smashing interactions.

Presenting without any math or physics equations per his own directive, Adelman aims to explore the excitement behind the LHC, and what value lies in studying the Higgs boson and the multitudes of other research conducted with the LHC.
