Event details

Projects as big as the hunt for the Higgs boson don’t happen without dealing, conniving and occasional skullduggery. Award-winning physicist and author Sean Carroll revealed the search for the universe’s most elusive particle and opened a door into the mind-boggling domain of dark matter and other phenomena we never predicted.

Sean was the winner of the Royal Society Winton Prize for Science Books last year.
