498th Brookhaven Lecture Wednesday, 10/22: 'Vector Boson Scattering: Watching the Higgs Boson at Work with the ATLAS Particle Detector'

With the Kansas City Royals and San Francisco Giants squaring off for the 2014 World Series, professional photographers at the games will rely on cameras that weigh about 3.5 pounds and can shoot up to 14 photos per second. When high-energy protons face off for head-on collisions at the Large Hadron Collider, physicists from Brookhaven Lab and 177 other institutions rely on the ATLAS detector, a "camera" weighing more than 15.4 million pounds that can snap 40 million "pictures" per second.  More...
