Hosted by The House Science and National Labs Caucus
July 4, 2012 marked a centennial milestone in physics: the discovery of the Higgs boson at the Large Hadron Collider. This remarkable discovery was made possible by global scientific collaborations including more than 1500 U.S. scientists from national laboratories and over eighty universities, who provided key ideas, talent, technology, and leadership, building on twenty five years of experience at the Fermilab Tevatron.The Higgs boson, the recent discoveries about neutrinos and the accelerating expansion of the universe highlight the vibrant character of particle physics research and its promise to continue to illuminate the nature of the world around us. The technologies developed to drive these discoveries continue to transform our lives.
Please come and celebrate with us!
