So a good friend of mine, former Quantum Diaries blogger, and exceptional scientist, Homer Wolfe from The Ohio State University, is doing a live chat today about what the world of physics looks like now that we (may have) found the Higgs. The chat is taking place at 2pm (CT) 3pm (EST)
You can find a link to the live chat here:
Homer has an exceptional ability to provide a wonderful understanding of very complex physics that is accessible to even those “not in the know”. Even more, his broad knowledge of science and physics in particular should make this discussion very interesting and entertaining. (He is also an exceptionally funny person…so expect some good humour too)
Following the live chat, Homer is also giving a special Joint Experimental-Theoretical physics seminar at Fermilab on the results from CDF (Collider Detection at Fermilab) that was presented at ICHEP (physics conference) this last week. I highly encourage anyone at Fermilab to take this opportunity to go see his talk. He is an exceptional speaker and will be sure to add a great flair to the results from CDF.
So that is my shameless plugging of a very good friend who is one of the most talented physicists I have ever known.
