Science

The Large Hadron Collider in Geneva represents one of the most inspiring—and challenging—scientific breakthroughs in this golden age of physics. Renowned physicist Frank Close, author of The Infinity Puzzle, offers an insider’s look at the 40 years of research, breakthrough, and endeavor surrounding its construction, against a backdrop of high politics, low behavior and billion-dollar budgets. Presented as part of Seattle Science Lectures, with Pacific Science Center and University Book Store. Series sponsored by Microsoft. Series media sponsorship provided by KPLU.
Advance tickets are $5 at www.brownpapertickets.com or 800/838-3006 and at the door beginning at 6:30 pm.
