Front-page news across the world on July 5th - "Scientists Discover the Elusive Higgs Boson!" Clearly, it was very important. For all of us who aren't physicists, it sounds interesting, but our actual understanding is still about as clear as mud. Illinois Science Council is teaming up with 137 Films to fix that. (And we'll make you seem positively brilliant because you'll be able to explain it to others!) Join us for the screening of a documentary film, "The Atom Smashers" which clearly explains the science behind this discovery and the roller-coaster nature of the search at Fermilab. The film will be followed by a panel discussion with Q&A featuring physicists from Fermi and Argonne National Laboratories (right here in Chicago's backyard) involved in the search.
