Fermilab Lecture Series presents:
The LHC Voyage of Discovery
Dr. Dan Green, Fermilab

Tickets - $7

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in Geneva, Switzerland began data taking in early 2010 after almost 20 years of preparation, both construction and commissioning. The LHC program of physics will address some of the most profound questions in high energy physics. During an extended running period in 2011 through 2012, the CMS and ATLAS experiments expect to begin to explore new physical phenomena which will shed light on the origin of mass, dark matter, new symmetries of nature and the possible existence of extra dimensions of space.

Fermilab is the second largest group in CMS, after the CERN group, and has made major contributions to CMS in all aspects. Fermilab operates the Remote Operations Center and the LHC Physics Center. These two centers were invented to enable US physicists to participate fully in the life of the CMS analysis community.
