Faculty from UC's Department of Physics are eager to talk about “Particle Fever,” a critically acclaimed documentary film covering events leading to the discovery of the Higgs boson, the so-called “God Particle.” The film opens at the Esquire Theatre this weekend.
The movie follows six scientists during the launch of the Large Hadron Collider, the most expensive and complex particle collider in history, as they try to understand the creation of the universe. More information about the film can be found at its website, http://particlefever.com/
UC particle physicists, professors Alexander Kagan, Michael Sokoloff and Jure Zupan, will entertain audience questions on the science and the story, following the 7:15 p.m. shows on Friday, April 11, and Saturday, April 12.
Sokoloff and Zupan will join the Friday session, and Kagan and Sokoloff will join the Saturday session. Tickets for the Friday screening can be purchased at the Esquire Theatre website.
The Esquire Theatre is at 320 Ludlow Ave., within walking distance of a UC shuttle stop.
