To better understand the LHC and how the basic physics it studies can benefit society, join experts at swissnex San Francisco for LHC 101. Malika Meddahi, a physicist at CERN, describes what the collider is and how it works. Ian Hinchliffe, the US physics coordinator for the ATLAS detector, explains what scientists hope to discover from the LHC, including the illusive Higgs Boson particle. Elizabeth Clements, a senior science communicator at Fermilab, explains how the LHC and other particle accelerators contribute to innovation and therefore to the world economy in unexpected ways by advancing electronics, data storage, magnets, even tunneling technology.
