Update: Watch the exciting hangout with CERN.
Has the recent discovery of the Higgs boson particle left you scratching your head trying to master the basics of the standard model and particle physics? Are these useful explanations sufficient?
If you are still confused - or just curious, then you’re in luck. This Thursday, the team behind CERN People, a documentary film project chronicling the cutting edge work being done to better understand our universe, will take part in a Google Hangout with the Guardian’s Ian Sample, author of "Massive: The Hunt for the God Particle". They’ll discuss their most recent findings, what’s next for the researchers at the Large Hadron Collider and answer your questions.
CERN People is a feature-length film project by the award-winning documentary-maker Films of Record. They’ll be releasing a full length film on the Higgs boson next year but you don’t have to wait to see their work. Their YouTube channel and Google+ page are full of interviews and explanations from CERN scientists.
The Hangout will be live at 5pm BST and available at on the CERN People G+ Page. Tune in and catch up on the exciting news about the origins of our universe and other head-scratching insights into our world.
