Today at Berkeley Lab

Gianotti’s Higgs Lecture Helps Celebrate Bruno Zumino’s 90th

A roster of stellar physicists kicks off BrunoFest today in honor of Berkeley Lab and UC Berkeley theorist Bruno Zumino’s 90th birthday. Part of the celebration is a public lecture by Fabiola Gianotti, former spokesperson (leader) of the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider, who announced last July 4th, along with her colleague from the CMS experiment, the discovery of a new particle that looks very like the long-sought Higgs boson. Gianotti will talk about ‘The Higgs Boson and Our Life’ starting at 5 p.m. Friday in the International House’s Chevron Auditorium.
