LLL Coffee: The God Particle with Dr. Jay Dittmann

DateJanuary 20, 2023
LocationMayborn Museum Complex

Lifelong Learning at the Mayborn Museum is a primarily volunteer-led membership-based organization that offers an array of learning opportunities and experiences for intellectually curious adults, aged 50 and older. Lifelong Learning events are open to the public and a great way to learn more about the program before joining as a member.

Join us on January 20th to hear Jay Dittmann speak on "The God Particle: What Is It? Why does it matter?"

Hear how Dittmann was involved in this scientific discovery at the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva, Switzerland, that has been making waves in the field for the past 10 years.

Join us for refreshments at 9:30 am followed by the 10:00 am lecture, "The God Particle: What Is It? Why does it matter?"

Professor Dittmann is an associate professor of physics at Baylor University, where he leads the school's experimental high-energy physics group. In 2008, Professor Dittmann became involved with the search for the God Particle along with several postdoctoral research associates and graduate students.

The search for the God Particle has been a driving force for physics research for decades, but scientists had not found a particle that fit the predictions until 2012. That year, Professor Dittmann and his colleagues discovered a new elementary particle, which could turn out to be the long-sought God Particle. Hear about this discovery on January 20th at the Mayborn.
