Professor Peter Higgs, 'My life as a boson'

Event information

More than 100 scientists from around the globe gathered at Swansea University for the 10th International Conference on Strong and ElectroWeak Matter (SEWM2012).

One of the highlights was a keynote lecture by Professor Peter Higgs of the University of Edinburgh, after whom the famously elusive Higgs boson is named.  Professor Higgs is also an Honorary Fellow of Swansea University.

Peter Higgs' appearance at Swansea came in the wake of exciting announcements from the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) about the discovery of the Higgs boson.

Professor Higgs' lecture was publicly live streamed and recorded, and is available to view below.

Professor Simon Hands (Swansea University; previously of CERN) interviewed Professor Higgs on the morning of his talk, which is also available to view below.
