Ever wanted to know quarks, leptons and bosons are? Especially *that* boson? What does the Large Hadron Collider do? How did scientists discover the Higgs particle? What is there yet to discover?
Ian Duerdoth recently retired from The University of Manchester, Dept of Physics and Astronomy. He worked at CERN for many years, latterly on the silicon tracker detector for the ATLAS experiment on the Large Hadron Collider. He is a volunteer at the Museum of Science and Industry’s Collider exhibition, which runs till 28 September.
