Registration opens in September for October 13 - 24, 2014 session.
Mankind has wondered about questions like the origins and fundamental makeup of the universe for as long as we’ve kept records. In this class, Dr. Don Lincoln, senior physicist at Fermilab and on the team that discovered the Higgs boson, will tell you what you need to know about the nature of matter and the history of the universe. From the subatomic world of particle physics to the universe-spanning world of cosmology, students will both learn perspective on our current understanding as well as get an inside look at cutting-edge research, including how particle accelerators work, what they can teach us, how the Higgs boson was discovered and what it all means.
