Air date: 
20 June, 2013

On 4 July 2012, CERN announced the discovery of a new boson, later confirmed to be "a Higgs boson", but which one? Is it the Higgs boson predicted by the Standard Model of particle physics or one of the five Higgs bosons associated with Supersymmetry? Theoretical physicist John Ellis joined experimental physicists to talk about Supersymmetry, also known as SUSY. What is it? Why and how does it link with the Higgs boson?

HWC S03E08: Upgrading with TALENT

Air date: 
13 June, 2013

The world's largest particle accelerator, CERN's Large Hadron Collider, is preparing to run at higher energies. With collisions on hold, engineers and physicists are busy consolidating and upgrading the accelerator, the experiments and more. In this episode, researchers from the TALENT project gave us insight into their work to help upgrade the ATLAS detector.
